Near-field communication
Near-field communication (NFC) technology permits a consumer to wave their mobile phone at a point-of-sale terminal to buy via the use of a “digital wallet.” One of the fast-growing instances of the digital wallet is the appropriately known as Google Wallet, but it pays to know just a little bit about how it works before you dive in to the cashless (and cardless) retail revolution.

The Melting Pot plans North America expansion

BY Dan Berthiaume

Tampa, Fla. – The Melting Pot Restaurants plans to expand its footprint in select markets throughout the U.S., and Canada. Domestically, the company is looking to recruit new franchisees in cities such as Anchorage, Alaska; Little Rock, Ark.; Fresno, Calif.; Hartford, Conn.; Des Moines, Iowa; New York City; Chattanooga, Tenn.; Charleston, S.C.; and Portland, Maine, as well as Houston and El Paso, Texas.

On the international front, The Melting Pot is focusing its expansion efforts in cities across Canada, including Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver. As part of the brand’s growth plan, The Melting Pot is also offering the opportunity to purchase existing restaurants with established customer bases in additional markets across the country. The company, which currently operates 135 stores in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, expects to sign a number of new franchise agreements before the end of 2014 and open at least four new restaurants by 2015.

"This new growth strategy demonstrates the strength of The Melting Pot brand and would not be possible without having a solid foundation of successful owners in place," said Mike Lester, president of The Melting Pot. "With nearly 30 years of experience in franchising, The Melting Pot is a proven concept that provides franchisees with the tools and support needed to help them achieve success. We look forward to bringing The Melting Pot to more cities across North America and are confident that our one-of-a-kind, customized fondue experience will be well-received."

BY Dan Berthiaume

Woonsocket, R.I. – CVS/pharmacy is launching a new service called Bill Pay at CVS/pharmacy in spring 2014 to help customers manage their monthly health insurance premiums. Members of participating health plans can bring their insurance bills to any CVS/pharmacy store in the U.S. to pay their premiums at no additional cost.

CVS/pharmacy has partnered with InComm to facilitate bill payments at all cash registers in the pharmacy or at front checkout. Members of health plans that participate in Bill Pay at CVS/pharmacy will receive their monthly premium bills featuring a customer-specific barcode and instructions on how it may be used to pay their premium. CVS will scan the barcode and collect the member’s desired payment, which may be made using cash, credit card or debit card.

CVS/pharmacy also accepts insurance bill payments from members of health plans that are enrolled in MoneyGram’s bill payment service. Most CVS/pharmacy locations are equipped with MoneyGram phones or kiosks to facilitate a cash-only bill payment at a store’s front checkout.
