Like most other things the pandemic has changed quite a few things including how businesses do business. One such change is coming to Stake ‘n Shake outlets around the country. The next time you go to a Steak ‘n Shake it may not be like you remember from pre-COVID-19 days.

The burgers-and-milkshakes restaurant chain is planning a transformation to a quick-service restaurant model and will eliminate sit-down service in favor of self-service kiosks according to Biglari Holdings, the parent company for Steak ‘n Shake.

In the past, preparing food has taken too long and paying wait staff for table service was too expensive, according to a letter recently sent to Biglari Holdings investors.

The Steak ‘n Shake chain has more than 550 locations, and it will cost between $100,000 and $200,000 to remodel and add new point-of-sale and self-service equipment to each restaurant.

According to Fox News, the coronavirus pandemic has already forced Steak ‘n Shake to close 57 of its restaurants because of "an adverse effect" caused by COVID-19. Steak 'n Shake is located in Quincy at 3819 Broadway.
