Undoubtedly, Self Service Kiosks have been the new trend for many supermarkets lately, whether it’s Publix, Walmart, and now Costco.
It was last reported in 2018 that Costco was testing Self Ordering Kiosks for its food courts and since then, the service has been installed at many of Costco’s locations such as its store in Tustin, Pacoima, and Covington.
The move to install more of these computerized self-ordering services has been a sigh of relief for Costco’s customers. Everyone wants to take a quick trip to Costco for a slice of pizza or a hot dog but no one wants to wait in long queues. With just a tap, these kiosks help you order your favorite meals and food from Costco, which include the following:
- Costco’s famous hot dog for $1,50
- Chicken Caesar Salad
- Turkey and provolone sandwich
- Chicken Bake
- Beef chili
- Very Berry Sundae
- Frozen yogurt cup
- Cold Brew Mocha Freeze
- 20-ounce Pepsi soft drink for 59 cents
- Pizza by the slice or whole pie in pepperoni
- Combo or special order
During the Covid-19 pandemic, Costco has taken various steps to keep its customers safe like removing chairs and tables from the sitting area of its food courts so people could practice social distancing more effectively. Even the step to install these kiosks can help reduce human to human contact. Although we will definitely advise you to use your hand sanitizers before and after you use the screen to eliminate the risk of exposure to a contaminated surface!
While the installation of these self-ordering kiosks may be old news for many people, for some it is a surprise and relief as they’re a new, quick, and easy way to place their orders without the hustle of waiting in those long food court lines at Costco.
As of 2016, Costco is the world’s largest retailer of choice and prime beef, organic foods, rotisserie chicken, and wine. In 2019, Costco was also ranked #14 on the Fortune 500 rankings of the largest United States corporations by total revenue.
