Would You Eat at a Restaurant That Bans Cell Phones? Would you eat at your favorite restaurant if they banned the use of cell phones while eating there?
A popular family restaurant in the UK is doing just that. Frankie & Benny's said that their research showed that children wanted their parents looking at their cell phones less.
So they banned the use of smartphones while eating at their establishment. Would such a ban fly with a Chili's or Applebees here in the United States?
While a few independent restaurants have tried cell phone bans, could you imagine a major chain making that bold of a move? As for Frankie and Benny's, the ban is only being done from November 29th until December 7th.
