On a warm late-spring evening, the line at Mrs Curl Ice Cream Shop and Outdoor Cafe stretched down the sidewalk in Old Town Greenwood.
Customers loaded up on chocolate milkshakes, banana splits and nearly overflowing waffle cones. Families ordered pork tenderloin meals, baskets of chili cheese dogs and curl fries. Kids shelled out crumpled dollar bills, quarters and pennies for their treats.
But for the first time in more than 40 years, customers could choose a new way to pay. Mrs Curl employees now can accept credit cards, swiping on their smartphones and then texting the receipt to customers.
No more making a trip to the ATM before going to get an after-dinner treat.
