Typically **Tesla** pays for those destination chargers. The hardware for sure; I'm not sure about the installation.
I'll tell you what it will take to install a J1772 EVSE: money out of the mechant's pocket.

I would expect Tesla's contract with the business owner would spell that out. Absent any contractual obligation, it's entirely up to the business owner to do what they want with the equipment.
Not far from where I am, when I'm in Wisconsin, there is a local Winery
where Tesla paid to install 3 destination charging stations but also paid to install one J1772 standard charging station as well (and not because the owner asked or even knew to ask), they just did it as part of the outreach
I think its a good business model for Tesla to include other electric cars in their destination charging station program as it both promotes electric cars (generally a good thing) and helps many of us feel better about a company that so far has used a lot of federal dollars to make vehicles exclusively for the 1%. Even if the Model S ends up more than vaporware it's still priced at $30k (likely more) and that's still a price point for the upper 10%. Still a very long way from a car for the masses.
Note: I have no connection to the Winery discussed and linked here. I've talked to the owner while charging my Leaf and shopping at his business. If you visit here, I recommend you get some of the Cranberry Wine Cheese - its the best! The picture below is from PlugShare.
