Fast-food chain Wendy's is planning to install self-order kiosks at about 1,000 locations across the country by the end of 2017 to cut labor costs, The Columbus Dispatch reported.
Wendy's has locations in at least 110 New Jersey towns. The report did not indicate the locations getting the kiosks.
Wendy's said it already offered kiosks to its restaurants last year and that both customers and franchisees have demanded more of the service.
According to the report, the company said the kiosks would help reduce labor costs and give younger customers the experience they prefer.
The kiosks cost about $15,000 each.
Earlier this month, Wendy's said it opened 150 new restaurants worldwide in 2016 and plans to open another 1,000 by 2020.
