The Napkin Dilemma


Napkins are rarely placed in their holders properly. In order for a consumer to grasp a napkin, there needs to be something to grab and pull. Most devices allow a small space within their holding bin for an eager patron to grab napkins. Problem is, more often than not, the employee who stocks the napkins put them in backwards or upside-down. Either the fold or the flap is inaccessible, causing us to tear apart a napkin, rendering it useless. That, or we have to dig our hands in deep and grab a stack of napkins, a number far too many needed for our meal or hand-drying.
