Certain states, such as Florida and Georgia, have implemented new safety programs allowing restaurants and retailers to open back their doors to customers with certain stipulations. At what capacity restaurants can seat their guests depends on each State, but the main goal of these new rules is to allow small businesses to begin operating again while still being mindful to help limit the spread of COVID-19. One of the main challenges restaurants will be looking to tackle is limiting the physical contact between workers and patrons as much as possible.
One item that comes to mind that usually comes in contact with multiple hands in a day is a typical restaurant menu. If you are a restaurant owner or manager who needs to change the way you share your menus with your guests, you’ll want to learn about a new digital menu tool that will display right on a guest’s smartphone – Touchless Menu.
The Touchless Menu tool, created by GoZone WiFi, is a quick fix for restaurants that need to switch to a digital menu option for their business in a speedy and price-efficient manner. Touchless Menu displays a digital version of a restaurant’s menu via a running WiFi network. All guests need to do is connect to the restaurant’s WiFi, and then they will display the menu on their smartphone. There are also four other smart reasons for restaurants to switch to Touchless Menu.
Guests Will Feel More Comfortable
It is only fair we should assume people will want to limit the number of items they touch throughout the day. Even if a restaurant switches over to disposable menus, it is still plausible for guests to rightfully assume that a third party has handled disposable paper to some degree. Switching over to a digital menu that can be displayed on a guest’s smartphone creates a secure and trusted feeling for that customer. If you had the choice of using a disposable menu or viewing a restaurant’s entire menu on your smartphone, which one would you choose?
Saves Time for Wait Staff
Going to disposal menus could also mean having the staff spend time stocking up on said menus throughout. If you are attempting to bring guests the menus when seated, that could mean a tedious process for attempting to safely transfer menus from the worker’s hands to the customer’s.
With Touchless Menu, a digital menu is readily available to every guest with a device to view it on (which these days means practically every adult and teenager). Guests who are waiting to be seated will also be able to view the menu, which can help save time on ordering their meals once they are seated. By eliminating the need of trying to handle disposable menus properly, your work staff can place all their focus on providing food to guests in a safe and clean environment.
Reduce or even Eliminate Printing Costs
If you are looking to use disposal menus, be prepared to add on a new cost of continually having to print them. One of the reasons GoZone came up with Touchless Menu was because they understood that restaurants, especially family-owned eateries, will need to as strategic with their budget as possible.
The cost of paying for printed menus can fluctuate with the number of guests asking to handle one. With Touchless Menus, you only pay a cost-efficient annual fee to showcase a digital menu readily available to any guest connecting to your guest WiFi.
Easily Update Digital Menu Items
Suppose you tend to make periodic changes to your menu selections. In that case, that can lead to constantly changing either your printed menus or physical menu display at the checkout counter. Touchless Menu comes with a simple drag-and-drop editor so restaurateurs can make needed menu changes in a matter of seconds.
