This study investigated the factors that influence the customer’s decision to use a self-service kiosk (SSK) in quick service restaurants (QSRs.)Specifically, an integrated model incorporating Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and Satisfaction model was developed to examine the relationship among trust, self-efficacy, perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, perceived enjoyment, perceived value, satisfaction and behavioral intention toward using these kiosks in QSRs.In addition, the moderating impact of age, gender and past experience using SSKs was examined. Structural equation modeling and multiple regression analyses were applied for data analysis. The results indicate that (a) continued intention was directly influenced by customer satisfaction; (b) intrinsic motivation (Perceived enjoyment) strongly influenced customer satisfaction, while extrinsic motivations (perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use) did not influence customer satisfaction; (c) self-efficacy had a more significant impact on intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivations than trust; and (d) no moderating effects were found between TAM constructs and Satisfaction model constructs. These findings provide theoretical and practical implications for future studies and QSR managers who are considering or have already adopted SSKs.
