Are you aware of the script capabilities in bitcoin?  They will enable transactions of the sort that require say 3 out of 5 signature to spend funds.  This is exactly what is needed in a corporate accounting context.  This same capability can also be used for multi-factor authentication to protect high value wallets.  I believe Gavin and other core developers are doing work to enable these capabilities as we speak.

I have not heard of this. I will definitely look into it. Sounds like just what is needed to bring Bitcoin to the big time.

Oh yeah, it is sick awesome. I want some [A and B] or C action please.

If this is true, I'll bet it's a franchisee rather than the parent corporation.  Often a franchisee will own a few locations.

It would be very stupid for a franchisee to do something like this without approval from the parent company.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Its Hooters! 468 locations..

Someone please photoshop bitcoins into the hooters logo!

This would be the perfect combination.
I hope it is true!

Years ago, I had this idea of a restaurant chain that caters to women based on the same theme as Hooters. The name? Hamptons. I pictured it standing room only, every night.  Wink

It must be "this weekend" in the US by now.  Wonder when Bruce is planning on making his big announcement.

It's 6AM in New York now. If there is a restaurant accepting Bitcoins this weekend, it should be open within the next few hours. I guess we'll see.

Are you gullible? Male? Preferably pre-pubescent? Bruce Wagner's PeeWee Playhouse is open for business!

Thank you so much!

I love it, and my girl friend is pissed because I may soon have a reason to go to Hooters every day for lunch!

My friend just mentioned that Hooters would make sense for this.

It is the kind of place that some people may not want to have show up on their credit card bill where their wife might see it.

Cash and Bitcoins are good for this kind of thing.

I think I have this figured out.

Bruce has a friend who owns a Chinese restaurant that said she would be interested in accepting Bitcoin.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=printpage;topic=1788.0

Most likely he has showed her the new bit-pay mobile app that makes it easy to accept Bitcoin for stores and she is probably setting it up this weekend.

So...a national chain restaurant will be accepting Bitcoins.

It would be like a Subway store owner putting the bit-pay app on his phone and accepting Bitcoins at his store and the story being "Subway restaurant now accepts Bitcoin!"

Bruce is an easy target, but he's trying to promote bitcoin. Give him a little slack. Perhaps we should all encourage local businesses to accept bitcoin. Let's make the news instead of reading about it.

Makes me thing you could build a decent POS terminal out of a relativly cheap tablet though

Square already does that, quite successfully.
