Native speaker’s answer

Rebecca

The speaker uses present progressive tense because she is describing a typical situation that happens at buffets. Therefore, she is describing what anyone currently at a buffet is doing, so she uses present progressive tense. This sentence could also be said as, "They don't need full wait staff because you get your own food and bring it to the table."
