If the NFC feature isn't mandated into the contract of credit card terminal acceptance, it soon will be before the October 2015 EMV mandate in the United States. And when that happens, there is nothing they can do about it.

They could always go back to cash and handwritten ledgers! :)

There's a Thai restaurant downtown SF near Union square (if you want to think in terms of rent) that is cash only

There's almost always a little line out the door and the restaurant is never not busy

It's not huge but I guess they make enough that the owner can row around with an alligator LV briefcase..

Some businesses just prefer to deal with cash

Personally I thought Apple pay would be great because I'm the type that will leave the wallet in my desk and only take my purse with me, leaving me with no cash or card until I get home,

But personally I think it's so I would just eat what's home, rather then buying to go food like I was originally planning to.
