I’ve got a two store limited dine-in, take-out and delivery operation and am re-printing a new menu every 12-14months because I’ve been raising prices that often. Has anyone ever printed their full takeout menu without pricing and just had a QR code on it for the customer to scan to take them to your online ordering site for pricing and to order? It seems the QR code is making a comeback and it might be the right time to save some money on printing costs ( I use Grande Solutions 10x17 three fold 12,500 or 25k pcs at a time ) and also have the ability to raise prices on any item at will this way. I’m sure Grande will not like the idea.
I’ve thought about doing the same. Also 2 location, casual eat in with take out and delivery. Pros of it are possibly more people order online, cons are, new customers may be lazy and go to the next place where they have prices printed, but maybe they haven’t updated them
My thoughts. I don’t think its a bad thing per say because as we continue to move to a digital age more and more customers should be accessing your menu from your website or online ordering website anyways. For me personally, I have not looked at a paper menu from anywhere in an incredibly long time. In addition I don’t think I have ever seen places like Pizza Hut or Dominos have ever had paper menus with prices on them outside of the prices on coupons. The only issue is I know that my customers would not like it and it would be a bigger hassle dealing with the blowback from the complaints then it would be worth to me. That’s just me and my customer base though and I would take how you think your base would react to it. I also don’t think its a super big deal to just get a new menu every 12-16 months.
