Area restaurants not included, for now

May 29, 2001


Don't expect a cashless payment system at McDonald's in Lawrence at least not yet.

"McDonald's tests hundreds of products every day across the country," said Marilyn Dobski, co-owner of Dobski & Associates, which owns 13 McDonald's restaurants in Lawrence, Topeka, DeSoto, Bonner Springs, Leavenworth and Atchison. "This is a very interesting concept.

"Basically, we'll have to look at the results from their tests and see if it's worth pursuing in the Kansas City region."

Among previous tests in Lawrence, Dobski & Associates tried KidzPace video games early last year. The machines remain in the restaurant at 4911 W. Sixth St.

But a test of HirePro didn't pan out, Dobski said.

The electronic employee-application system proved too slow for managers.
