Apple Pay will soon ring you up at Starbucks, KFC and Chili's

KFC will be accepting Apple Pay some time in 2016, as will Chili's. The former is owned by Yum! Brands, while the latter is part of the restaurant portfolio owned by Brinker International. Using the mobile payment service should allow for lines to move quicker.
Apple says that Apple Pay has a 98% customer satisfaction rating although one researcher says that the service handled just 1% of payment transactions in the states. The tech titan grabs a percentage of the value of each transaction that is rung up using its mobile payment service. Apple Pay is going up against Android Pay, and Samsung Pay, as retail cash registers becomes a major battleground among smartphone manufacturers and OS developers. Usage is relatively low, but we are in the first inning of a nine inning game.
Apple Pay is currently offered in the U.S. and U.K., with Canadian and Chinese consumers expected to be next in line to have the service at their disposal.

So, will the NFC terminals at these places be limited to Apple Pay? Either way, I'm not sure how using mobile payments or swiping a card speeds up lines. I used Samsung Pay at Starbucks and my order wasn't done any faster.

No they won't. NFC works with Android Pay, Samsung Pay and Apple Pay. I was using Google Wallet with many of them already, but Samsung Pay is even easier because many locations don't have NFC terminals. It was so funny when I was at McDonald's and the girl said the terminal only works with phone with NFC. I was like really? So I touch my phone to the terminal and it processed and she was like WOW! I said my device supports NFC, but that isn't what I use. Its so cool to not pull out a card and just pay and watch the look on peoples faces, iPhone or whatever you are using. It just looks so cool!

Nope, he/she is not mixed up. I've already been using Samsung Pay at Starbucks. Apple is always copying and always behind. Sucks to an Apple user. Samsung Pay can be used already at 95% of places that I go to.
