Digital menu board ideas and inspiration

Here are six ideas on different ways you could use restaurant digital menu boards.

1. Day Parting: You can have a menu board that details your breakfast menu, automatically changing to the lunch or dinner menu when you choose. You can have specials that come and go, offer lunchtime drink and food combos and switch to the dessert menu late in the evening. It’s all pre-programmed so you and your staff can focus on serving your customers.

2. Education: Use digital screens for staff training outside of hours, or help customers know what to do. Explaining where to order and pay via your screens will free up staff time, speed up service and improve customer satisfaction. If your country has legal requirements to share nutritional information, digital signs are great for that too.

3. Entertainment: You can reduce perceived customer wait times by showing sports, current affairs or other entertaining content on your digital menu screens. Here’s a corny food gag to get your creative juices flowing: Did you hear about the new restaurant on the moon? Great food but no atmosphere.

4. Engagement: Telling stories builds relationships and makes customers more likely to return to your venue. You can use your menu screens to introduce the chef and the rest of the team,  have a live kitchen cam so people can see their food being made, share a favorite recipe or interview the farmer who supplies the produce. You can update content remotely and push it to one screen or many. It is possible to customize your content, a great feature if you have more than one or even many locations around the country.

5. Getting Social: Food selfies are a thing. And most people eating out would take food selfies before tasting the dishes. Some among your customers would love seeing their posts on your social feed while they’re in the restaurant. Give them the satisfaction of seeing their posts on a big screen and encourage them to share the images and videos with their networks. Remember that positive word of mouth is a great way to grow your brand reputation and goodwill.

6. Additional revenue stream: Some restaurants have created an additional revenue stream for themselves by selling advertising space to local businesses on their screens. Your sit-in customers and those waiting in line at take away outlets as a captive audience. Think outside your own walls and promote the products and services of other local businesses with your digital displays.
