"Open Doors Organization estimates that people with disabilities spent nearly $35 billion dining out in 2003. Disability Market Research on Travel, Dining and Hospitality conducted by Harris Interactive for ODO revealed that adults with disabilities dine out frequently at all types of restaurants. In a typical week, 53% ate at least once at a fast food restaurant, 36% at a casual dining restaurant and 35% at a more formal establishment. Although taste of food and value top the list of reasons why they return to their favorite restaurants, 89% of the responses mentioned the quality of service including accessibility."
WaiterBell Angle: The WaiterBell system empowers all diners regardless of age, size or ability to access assistance more easily. We are currently contacting organizations to see if the WaiterBell system helps restaurants and diners with issues not fully addressed in ADA Access Guidelines.
