THE MOST 3 CHALLENGES OF PAPER MENU
1. Slow & hard to update
With Paper menus, it is not possible to update instantly with your latest offerings or unavailable items. No one wants to keep items on the menu that don’t sell well, but it costs time and money to change the menu.
2. Worn or dirty paper
The restaurant can’t completely maintain the paper menu away from water or oil stain. Many customers prefer to order without touching the menu due to hygiene issues. Restaurants can’t completely protect the paper menu from water, food, naughty kids, or usual expected wear.
3. Cost and Time consuming
Average restaurant reprints the menu 3 times a year which leads to high printing costs. Moreover, it takes time to design, approve, and print the menu.
3 THINGS CUSTOMERS HATE OF PAPER MENU
- Poor dish descriptions and lack of food pictures: It’s hard to catch the attention of customers and influence their purchasing decisions by poor pics or only text descriptions.
- Ordering Errors: Customers cannot input their choice directly. There are some difficulties in add-on the order by communicating with staff.
- Customers don’t want to touch the menu, especially during a pandemic.
WHY RESTAURANTS SHOULD CHANGE TO DIGITAL MENU
1. The perfect first impression to capture customer’s attention
As the digital menu supports HD images, it becomes easy for a customer to decide quickly with confidence in their order. Visual information leads to an increase in sales. Real and nice photos surely help customers to decide quickly.
2. Save money
- Expensive Printing Fee: Say goodbye to grubby and worn out menus as well as the time and stress of arranging reprints. The digital menu will save thousands of dollars on printing materials.
- Handle more orders using the same number of staff. There’s no jumping between tablets or emails, all of your orders come through one platform in a standard format. It also reduces the need for staff to handle customer orders by phone.
3. No more wrong orders: By having everything come through in a standardized format that kitchen staff know and love, there’s no confusion and little risk of getting the order wrong
