Is it Ok for a restaurant owner to kiss an unfamiliar customer?

This morning a friend of mine and I were talking about how our respective weekends went. One of the things she mentioned was that she and another female colleague stopped for dinner at a restaurant on their way home from work on Saturday.

They had never been to this restaurant before but enjoyed good service and food. The restaurant owner even introduced himself and was checking with each table to see if patrons were pleased. That is a good sign in my book.

But she also said that as the two of them were getting their coats, the owner came over to them with a big grin and bid them farewell and kissed both of them on the cheek. It was not a (for lack of a better term) European style cheek-to-cheek "kiss" he gave these ladies, but his lips pressed firmly on their cheeks kisses.

My friend thought that was weird, creepy and inappropriate. What are your thoughts?
