Why your Digital Menu Board sucks

10 Common Digital Menu Board Mistakes

First, we strongly suggest watching this SNL skit from a few years back. It is totally relevant, in several ways, to how you need to design your digital menu boards and why.

It’s also entertaining in and of itself.

An age old drama but totally relevant to today's  dilemma,

except now we have digital menu boards

So Many Choices!! What is the customer supposed to do??

Customers are looking for QUICK SERVICE

QSR Rule No 1

Streamlined Menu Offerings

If you offer too many choices and/or cram too much on the screen, you not only slow down the line but eventually lose customers who don’t have the time or patience.

Mistake 1: Too much content

  • Makes choosing easy.
  • Speeds up the line.
  • Plain and simple is the key.
  • ... and it makes money! 

So what do people want?

The lean menu makes a lot more money compared to the burger joint!

Here is a burger joint with its dizzying array of choices.

They are trying to be everything to everybody, but wind up being nothing to nobody.

An impossible array of choices can’t do the job it’s supposed to, and the bottom line suffers as a consequence...

Consumer grade TVs are meant for living rooms, not for commercial environments

Glossy screens, shiny bezels/edges, and razor thin profiles are not for commercial environments.

Glossy screens = good for large pictures/videos, but awful for menu boards, text and scrolls.

Consumer TVs have low brightness, not suitable for commercial (brightly lit) environments.

Mistake 2: Consumer-grade TVs

Consumer TVs come with a 1-year warranty on parts, ONLY if the screen is used in a residential environment!

Commercial Screens have 3-years of PREMIUM Warranties.

How about Warranty?

Consumer TVs have LOW CONTRAST, which makes them almost unreadable.
