WHY A QR MENU? 

  • Does Not Need Cleaning – QR Menus never need to be cleaned as they are never touched and are displayed on the guest’s phone
  • Increased Service Levels – QR Menus that allow for ordering ensure guests can start ordering as soon as seated. By merely taking payments the QR Menu removes the need for the guest to call the server to ask for the bill, process the payment and bring the change or receipt.
  • No additional hardware – QR Menus provide the cheapest entry point for restaurants and hotels going digital, especially over tablet and kiosk options
  • No Download Necessary – Unlike app-based solutions, customers don’t need to download an app. They only need to scan a code and the menu is visible immediately
  • Instant Menu Updates – The venue can update the menu immediately to reflect out of stock items and price changes; avoiding the need to reprint menus
  • More 5 Star reviews – Guests appreciate contactless and convenience. Restaurants with QR Menus are reporting an increase in 5-star reviews
  • Multiple languages are often supported
  • Ease of Use – The QR system is fairly easy to use; customers open their iPhone camera (or google lens) and scan a barcode (QR code) which opens a menu.
  • Flexibility – The type (and complexity) of the menu can be everything from just a single image (easy setup) all the way to a full ordering and payment (harder setup) solution

Why Not..

  • Not everyone has a smart phone
  • Some customers may be resistant to change, especially technology based change

There are many QR menu option available. To ensure you find the right one for your venue here is list of the best QR menu services on the market.
