From the Paper:

"In terms of the buffet type restaurant, the risk is that customers might not like the fact that they have to stand in line and serve themselves, instead of just being waited on. Not much can be done to mitigate this risk as any endeavor might jeopardize the buffet type of the location. However, marketing campaigns and customer approaches could be developed in such a manner that emphasizes on the benefits of buffet type restaurants, including the personal choice of the foods to be served upon seeing them, the ability to select and combine however the customer desires or the personal specification of the quantities to the bought."
