Place the beverage dispenser well away from the line and away from the area where people may wait to pick up their orders. At some concepts, handling drink reflls at the counter can exacerbate the situation, says Kowalski. Sending staff out into the dining area to provide reflls represents one way to re- solve this situation. Another is to create a designated area of the counter for the refll line, one that's clearly separated from the order line. As for condiments, one strategy that works to decrease congestion is to decentralize — forgo one large condi- ment island in favor of several smaller ones placed throughout the operation. As Kowalski says, the critical factor in optimizing queue control is to keep people comfortable and entertained — not boxed in, confused or frustrated. Designing with human behavior in mind and providing visual cues and tools for people to get through the line with a minimum of waiting will keep them coming back no matter how long the line is when they arrive. + Scan this Microsoft ® Tag using your mobile phone.
