Why do Restaurants need to use Digital QR Menu Instead of a Paper Menu?


Usually, a restaurant or any dining area is identified for the taste and quality of food that they offer. What we always mind to miss out is that the reason a person might want to go to your restaurant in the first place is the set of menu that you offer. The menu being the first point of contact for a customer, it needs to make an impression. In a restaurant, customers/Visitors do not read ‘the menu’ but quickly scan them.

Paper Menus – Current Challenges

  1. Cost and Time consuming
  2. Difficult to capture customer’s attention
  3. No Real-Time & Slow to update
  4. Ruined or dirty paper

Benefits of using Digital QR Menu

1. Contactless QR Menus Are Safer

Traditional menus are often handled and touched by multiple customers in the same party, are reused by multiple groups of visitors, and are handled by the restaurant team & staff. With contactless menus, there is no need to hold a menu as it is digital, with customers simply scanning the digital QR code to access the menu. Restaurant staff can even change out the QR code flyer between customers if necessary. All of this relates to a safe contactless dining experience and lowers the risk of COVID viral transmission.

2. Easy to Update & Change Menus

With contactless digital QR-code menus, restaurant managers and owners can test out new menu items, change branding, offers or make minor changes to a menu without having to print, laminate, pickup, and distribute new menus like with traditional paper menus. Restaurant staff simply go edit their menu online and it is automatically updated across the contactless QR codes.

3. Better Menu Design & Diner Experience

Digital Contactless Menus usually are built with an online menu builder that has existing menu designs with a great user experience, meaning you can make your most popular items stand out and have more customers finding their order faster.

4. Faster Table Turnover

There isn’t a need to sanitize or change menus between table turnover, meaning less work for staff and a more contactless sanitized environment for customers & visitors.

5. Reduced Costs

All menus are digital, saving restaurants money on printing and design services.
