A bar is no place to take your meals. Sure in a bar and grill situation with a wait staff and some sort of respectable food inspection record it is totally an acceptable place to get a burger. But if you find yourself in some dive and they are trying to deep fry you some shrimp RUN!
Instead what owners of finer bar establishments everywhere should consider is looking into places that have vending machines for sale. With a snack vending machine your customers will have the chance to satiate themselves while drinking without leaving the bar. This should effectively cut down on drunk driving but it will also keep them in your establishment drinking.
We all know the legends of bars with salted peanuts in bowls on the bar but this is the age of swine flu. No one wants to take chances shoving their hands into a bowl sitting out in public. Those drunk enough to do so are taking their health in their hands somewhat literally.
With a vending machine filled with salt chips and nuts you will be able to make money and satisfy the needs of your loyal customers. Besides you yourself might find a hankering for some Combos while you work.
