Contactless services are the future and business are jumping on the bandwagon at a rapid rate. 

Mr Yum SA launched their QR code mobile table-ordering app in South Africa in December and it makes eating our, or in, even more enjoyable. 

The app essentially acts as a digital menu, allowing South Africans to explore a menu, then order and pay directly through their phone. 

Mr Yum spearheaded this technology in Australia and New Zealand for over two years. 

A group of South African entrepreneurs brought the idea into South Africa as a way to help restaurants be accessible and profitable. 

Through the use of a QR code, users can access a menu without the fuss of downloading an app or signing up to anything.

Food is ordered and paid for immediately, so as to limit contact with patron and waitron.
