Doug Baron points to an article on Schlotzsky’s plan for free wireless around their restaurants. They’re also looking into providing access for other areas such as libraries and schools.
There’s a Schlotzsky’s about a mile from here, so I’ll have to check it out once they get an antenna up. For a year or more, most of the chain in Austin has provided iMacs for surfing, and now I guess I can check email while waiting in the drive-thru. But more than that, it’s nice to see a company that understands the benefits of doing something for their customers – and the community – without thinking about every cent they are going to make charging people for access.
Good sandwiches, too.
