Digital vs Traditional Menu Boards for Restaurants
Digital Menu BoardsDigital menu boards have become increasingly popular over the last few years as restaurants attempt to draw customers in with a more modern and convenient look. A digital menu board is essentially just several monitors which have a computer run to them, which projects an image on the monitor's screen. These digital menu boards offer some advantages over the traditional menu board, such as:
- Being easier to read because of their bright screens,
- Changing or updating the menu is very simple,
- Saving on printing and shipping costs,
- And the ability to change the menu throughout the day.
- Initial cost of hardware, software, and infrastructure,
- Ongoing costs of infrastructure, content management, and content creation,
- Only last from 6-8 years,
- Costly and inconvenient repairs,
- Lengthy installation.
Traditional Menu BoardsFor those who find that a digital menu board may be outside of their price range, not to worry. Many restaurants still choose to employ the traditional menu board even if they are able to afford the switch to digital. These menu boards give any restaurant a vintage feel, which can be used to your advantage depending on your pitch to customers. It can give a sense of nostalgia which many customers actually prefer over the more modern look. It is also very easy to install as it requires no wiring unlike it's digital version.
