Major Fast Food Retailer Will Stop Accepting Cash In 2017
Money makes the world go around, but it’s not always necessary to have greenbacks in your pocket any more. Healthy fast food joint Sweetgreen has revealed that it’s going to stop accepting cash payments at the majority of its stores in 2017. The company told Business Insider that health fiends looking for some greenery will need to have a credit card or smartphone in order to buy anything.
CEO Jonathan Neman explained that the change was pretty much a no-brainer, since only 10 percent of all sales were actually made with cash. When the company tested the switch, it found that service times got faster because staff didn’t have to count and store money. Not to mention that the stores will be at less risk of robbery since there’s no tasty safe full of notes kept on the premises.
The first stores to demonetize will be in New York, California, Illinois and Pennsylvania, starting on January 17th, 2017. In March, outlets in Maryland, Virginia and D.C. will follow suit, although no solid date has been announced as of now. One holdout from the change is Boston, which will continue to accept cold, hard currency thanks to a quirk of the local state laws.
