Popularity of Digital Menu Boards
Why are digital menu boards so popular?
Static printed signs have to be redone every time you change a price or menu item and the colour vibrancy fades over time. Old style menu boards where you could change prices and items by manually sticking letters on a board are cumbersome and require staff to go up on a ladder.
Digital menu boards are easily changed from a computer in a few seconds. And the colours remain vibrant.
Advertising on Digital Menu Boards
Because they are digital, menu boards can do much more than just show a menu. The monitors can also show advertising, specials, videos, news, weather and upcoming events either as part of the menu or as a quick screen flash away from the menu.
