As sit down restaurants, QSR's (quick service restaurants), bars and hotels modernize their operations, digital menu boards are an essential purchase. At the most basic level, digital menu boards replace static or chalkboard menus. But they do so much more than a printed restaurant menu! In addition to showing a restaurant's menu to customers in a beautiful visual medium, digital menu boards can be used to entertain customers with news feeds or videos while waiting in line and educate patrons and staff on a restaurant's policies regarding social distancing.
But digital menu boards really shine when it comes to improving a restaurant's profitability. According to a recent Forrester International research study of QSR's, digital menu boards increased average order value by 23% by leveraging the dynamic digital content (read: video and beautiful food photos) to showcase popular 'add-on' food and beverage items. The same study also showed that digital menu boards improved customer wait times and reduced printing costs.
Many restaurants utilize a local AV integrator when purchasing a digital menu board system. This is a good option if you want a 'hands-free' approach since they are product experts. However, you will pay considerably more when buying your digital menu boards from an AV integrator. Did you know you can save money purchasing digital menu boards online? (Hint: check out our line of HootBooth LumaVu Digital Menu Boards.)
There are many different variables to consider as you begin shopping for digital menu boards online. Don't make a purchase decision just by price alone - there are cheap displays with anemic chips and software that would make for a suboptimal choice for your restaurant or hospitality business.
A true commercial-grade digital menu board has such a long LED backlight life that they can run 24/7 for up to 50,000 hours with no damage to the LED backlight on the display. This is critical because many restaurants, convenience stores and hotels have their digital signage running 24 hours a day. If your restaurant does not keep the digital menu boards on 24/7, it will mean a longer product life. If you don't see a '24/7' rating on the display that you are considering, it is most likely a 'consumer' display' like you might find at Best Buy or another big box retailer. In fact, real 24/7 commercial digital signage will be available only through a display manufacturer' certified dealer. (For example, at HootBooth, we are certified value-added resellers for Philips brand commercial digital signage displays.)
'Consumer' displays that you buy at an electronics store have an average brightness rating of 350 nits (cd/m). In order for your digital menu boards to be readable in sunny environments, look for a display brightness rating of at least 450 nits; especially if you are placing your screens in a shop window or bright entryway.
As discussed above, a great deal of the benefit of digital menu boards is showcasing your food and beverage items through video and photos. In order to render multimedia content on the display(s), you need a powerful media player (basically a super-compact computer) connected to your digital menu system. For example, HootBooth's LumaVu Digital Menu Boards include a powerful Windows PC with an Intel quad-computer processor and loads of storage and RAM to properly render multimedia content across multiple 4K or Full HD screens in your digital menu system. You'll notice in your comparison shopping that lower priced digital menu systems utilize a native Android-based chip (read: much less powerful than an Intel Quadcore processor) and very low storage and RAM.
Unless you are wanting to hire a local AV installer or you have a network administrator that can add your digital menu system to your local area network (LAN), you will absolutely want to look for a digital menu board system with Integrated WiFi. With this feature, you can push menu and content changes from your PC - REMOTELY - without having to run any wires! The WiFi feature on your digital menu board system is a lifesaver when you need to update your menus in real time. For example, say you ran out of the Daily Special and want to take it off the menu. You can go into the web-based digital menu software on your PC and substitute another dish in it's place and then 'push' the menu change to your digital menu system from anywhere in the world!
The beauty of spanning content on multi-screen digital menu board systems is displaying multi-screen spanning content. But to have seamless viewability across screens, you will want to ensure that you have a mounting system with preconfigured brackets to keep the menu boards aligned. You will also want a mounting system (either wall-mount or ceiling mount) that allows for at least 10 degrees of screen tilt.
When looking for digital menu boards for sale online, be sure that free 1x1 training is included in the price. Just like any electronic product, digital menu boards can get technical; therefore, leverage the knowledge of the sales team and technical support team to help you through the installation and setup process. All HootBooth LumaVu Digital Signage products include two (2) hours of free 1x1 support via Zoom, Skype or Facetime as well as lifetime email, phone and knowledge-base support.

A well-designed coffee shop menu board can be an effective communication tool for your customers. Your coffee shop menu is designed to communicate all the options your customers have to purchase from you.
A menu board doesn't have to be fancy, but it should have some essential components. These are your drink and food options, the sizes you offer, and the prices of each size, substitute milk options, food, and other specialty items. Additionally, your coffee shop menu board may also serve as the centerpiece of your customer communication plan.
Traditionally, many coffee shops place their menu above their counter and behind the coffee bar. Customers who visit McDonald's, Starbucks, or other restaurants and cafes will be familiar with this placement.
A variety of coffee shop menu boards exist on the market. As you may have seen in McDonald's or KFC, the latest trend is digital menu boards, where the images are constantly changing and provide more customer engagement and potentially more sales. However, while this may make sense for larger less-intimate restaurants with hundreds of options to offer, as well as thousands of customers, it may be overkill for your coffee shop. What works for larger international companies and franchisees may not work for the independent coffee shop.
With a small-to-average-sized coffee shop, you might want to stick with a traditional menu board to save on your overall operational costs. Your coffee shop menu plays a big role in your coffee shop startup from the very beginning.
The placement of your cafe menu board will depend on your coffee shop's overall design, but it can be located in any number of places. For example, it can be placed on a coffee bar in front of a barista and your coffee shop POS-system. Depending on your menu board's size and style, it can be placed on a tri-stand to the side of the coffee bar. Or it can be placed both above the counter and on the front door.
Whichever menu board you decide to develop, your coffee shop menu board should offer your customers clarity. In doing so, you'll help your customers make the right choice, reduce questions on offerings and prices directed at your baristas.
If you are working with a mobile coffee truck, your mobile coffee menu may look slightly different. Having a mobile coffee business, you will want to develop a menu that works well for your space restrictions and mobility issues. 041b061a72
