In the age of COVID, restaurants everywhere are working hard to keep their restaurants open, their teams employed, and their customers safe. It’s no small task and our country is lucky to have such dedicated people working in the hospitality industry.
If ever your restaurant was considering migrating to digital menus, this is an optimal time. Sure, it would instantly eliminate the stress of having to sanitize menus between use, but digital menus present significantly more benefits to restaurants.
For one, digital menus allow a tremendous amount of flexibility to change the menu offerings. For example, if you want to beta test a new menu item, add it for a short time to see how it performs.
Menu flexibility is also especially helpful when an item runs out. Restaurant dining is all about the experience for the diners. When you put such a great deal of intentionality around your every detail, being able to showcase an accurate menu is key. When your diners know what options are available to them, they won’t be met with frustration, disappointment or frantic second choices.
Digital screens in your restaurant also allow you to highlight special promotions and offers. Running an event? Seasonal items? Special discount? Showcase these as they’re most relevant and leverage the four walls marketing in your restaurant.
Digital menus also are more eye catching and present opportunities to showcase your items in an appetizing and vibrant way. Print menus fade in time, and even with the best photography, a slightly inaccurate print color can turn your meal from delicious to damaging in a moment.
