Rob Poetsch, spokesman for the Irvine, Calif.-based chain, said the brand is on track to complete the national rollout of kiosks by the end of this year. The company has about 6,600 U.S. locations.

Less than a year into the deployment, the new 22-inch monitors are already winning accolades.

Taco Bell developed the application for the 22-inch touchmonitor.  The chain has remote monitoring via a secure cloud-based platform for remote management of the kiosks through Android devices.

For Taco Bell, the award is years in the making. The company has been testing various versions of kiosks, only recently settling on a format that it said works for its consumers.

Rafik Hanna, senior director of information technology at Taco Bell, said the company “strives to stay relevant with customers’ ever-changing preferences.”

Kiosks, too, are another area of innovation targeted by Yum in 2019. By 2020, Gibbs said, “our goal is to have 5,000 restaurants with kiosks.”

Indeed, according to that PYMNTS research, “larger chains are more likely than smaller ones to have in-store kiosks, and they’re also more likely to offer their own mobile apps.” That said, only 3 percent of QSR managers said that self-service kiosks stand as the most common method for placing orders.

Loyalty, too, is another feature that QSR customers want more of, with nearly 80 percent of them saying such programs are important to the future of success of QSRs. That compared with about 48 percent of QSR managers who said the same. Yum, according to its Q4 conference call, seems to be increasingly tilting toward those customer perceptions.
