Suffering from "serious liquidity issues," according to analysts, uWink has officially removed itself from the stock market after its share price hovered around zero for months.
The restaurant chain, started by Atari and Chuck-E-Cheese founder Nolan Bushnell, has a location on Castro Street. Although business there has not always been booming, the current problems are company-wide.
There is some hope for uWink, however, as it is beginning to sell its technology to other restaurants. Its table-top touch screens, which feature video games, interactive media and automated menus for ordering food, can lower a restaurant's labor costs by eliminating wait staff, the company said in a press release.
