So you're looking for digital menu boards that are easy to use and reliable but don't know where to start? Well, you're in luck; you've come to the right place. In this article, we're going to go over what digital menus are, how they work, the advantages, and how to set up your digital menu boards.

 

What are digital menu boards?

 

In simple terms, digital menus are TVs that are displaying your restaurant's menu digitally. From catchy motion graphics video ads of your signature items to scheduling the menu displays to play your breakfast and lunch menus at specific times automatically, digital menu displays can be used to improve the way you display your menu dramatically.

 

7 Benefits

 

1. Eliminate Printing Costs

For starters, you will never have to pay for a new printed menu and install it again. Because menu boards are digital, you can update your menu and wirelessly send the changes to your digital menu boards. 

2. Make on-the-fly edits

 

Prices, item adjustments, food images, and slideshows are just some of the things you can edit using digital menu board software. Edits can be made from any computer at any time of the day or night. All of the changes you make on the computer will automatically be sent to your digital menus.

3. Custom flexibility

Choose from a complete library of customizable digital menu templates to help you get started. You will be able to easily adjust the layout, text style, menu items, descriptions, price, images, and other media using our all-in-one digital menu board software.

4. Wow Factor

 

Bright and ultra-clear digital menu boards will beautifully showcase your menu. Include eye-catching videos of flames steaming out of the BBQ. At the same time, a juicy all-Angus burger is being flipped to visually grab attention, making it easier for you to promote dishes, appetizers, specialty drinks, and desserts.

 

5. Increase Your Bottom Line

 

Add featured items, promotional slideshows, and video clips that spotlight your highest profit items. This enhanced visibility will improve impulse purchases and your ability to advertise better.

 

6. Easier to Read

The 4k HD resolutions make for crisp text visibility. Include high contrasting background colors to improve readability to decrease ordering lines dramatically.

7. Improves Branding

 

Create a modern, more upscale experience for your guests using digital menu boards. Include your restaurant's colors into the menu board to create a consistent, unified brand look.

 

How to Set Up a Digital Menu Board

  1. Measure the space you have

  2. Make sure you have an updated menu ready

 

Now, when it comes to TV size and how many, you will need to count the total number of items on your menu. 

Tip: make sure the menu is broken into categories. This lets you better organize your menu layout while making it easier to read for your guests.

For digital menus to be effective, less is more. Menus that are crowded with lots of items are hard to read and overwhelming.

 

If you want a text-only menu go with no more than 31 items per digital menu display. If you're going to include images, don't list more than 21 items, this will leave you space for food images.

 

For the average restaurant, we see customers using three tvs. This allows restaurants to display 90 or fewer items with room for images.

 

 

Setting up your digital menu template

 

Using the drag-and-drop restaurant menu templates, you can insert all of your menu items and completely customize the digital menu board template. This flexibility lets you include your branding requirements. 

 

How to get your menu into the digital menu boards

 

You have two ways to get your menu playing.

 

  1. USB thumb drive

 

Save your digital menu template as a PNG, put it on a USB stick, and then insert it into your TV. This method does let you make edits wirelessly from a computer. You can also not preschedule menus to play at specific times.

 

  1. Digital menu software

 

This option gives you total control. Using your computer, you can quickly access your menu, edit it and update it. Make updates from anywhere, and your TVs will automatically update!
