are a handful of companies that will charge money to have someone wait in line for you at busy locations like Franklin BBQ in Austin. Everyone trying to make a buck these days, and I don’t blame them.

And even with articles like this one from Eater Austin promoting the entrepreneurship abilities of a middle school student, Franklin BBQ wants everyone to know that paying for someone to wait in line for your barbecue group is against their policy.

Is this a big deal?

I definitely don’t want one person to be waiting in line for a group of 5 or more, but I don’t see any issues with a 1 for 1 deal whatsoever.  If people have that kind of money to throw around, so be it.  I’m just grumpy I didn’t think of the idea sooner.
