Which services is Poland still waiting for?

Checking news sites, I frequently run into advertisements of services which are still scarce, unpopular or unexistent in Poland.

First example: mobile tyre fitting.

atyouraddress.com/services/mobile-tyre-fitting.html

s

Have your tyres fitted at your address in and around London. Doesn't matter where you are in London, through atYourAddress.com you can locate and choose best mobile tyre fitting offer in London for your requirements. No more waiting at greasy tyre shops to choose from the range of tyres that is only in stock, mobile tyre fitting sorts that out.

Funny!

In Poland the traditional way is to visit a tyre shop. When a snowstorm suddenly strikes, queues can be really unbearable.

All the Wroclaw-named members have posted consecutively above, not sure if that has some sort of weird symbolic meaning... somebody somewhere could be playing forum ID bingo and has won a considerable prize pot

So if I opened a laundrette in Wroclaw with a side office filling in people tax forms Id be on a winner,service with a smile being the icing on the cake,getting a sense that you are not by simply walking into someone's place of work doing the equivelant to masturbating at their aunties funeral......

You're late. It was introduced a couple of years ago.

laundrette

I think somebody has already tried that, there was a thread on it - it didn't work too well - Poles are probably too used to doing washing at home, a washing machine is a must.

But I like the idea of mobile tyre service.

Not yet popular, but avaliable - mostly for trucks.

Free refills on sodas.

A few places do free refills, but chips/fries (real ones made by cutting a potato rather than opening a freezer bag) are but a distant dream. So is good gravy.

There used to be a place in Warsw called King Pie. I think it's an American franchise and I quite liked it, however people here either couldn't figure out what pies were all about or just didn't fancy them so it closed a few years ago.

Incidentally, Champions in Warsaw have stopped doing the coffee refills.

the one Coffee Heaven or Starbucks in the rynek doesn't count, if that's what you're referring too.

Poland has been given a huge EU grant to put all service on line. I think they have failed to get anywhere with it and may have to return the money.

I used to refill in certain KFC's without any problems too, never did know if you actually could or not.

but in HRC you have to ask the waiter and he/she will at no xtra charge and free wifi so can spend a good time hanging there by the power outlet with notebook surfing and having coke zero for hrs for 5 PLN or even whole day:)))

Don't know why you'd want it.

Me too, give that the cost to the franchise is very near nothing I'd have now qualms about it. The food has a least a 500% markup for a franchise, drinks much more.

There are laudrettes in Poland you just haven't looked hard enough.

Poland needs Argos! I can't abide having to take hours to go to 100's of little shops to buy simple things like screwdrivers!!!

I'm not interested in people's opinions on drive thru, I'd like to know where they are in Poland. Smurf implied they were abundant.
