Optimized menuboards begin with a menu strategy. Surprisingly, many restaurant chains do not have a cohesive and well documented menu strategy linked to high-level business objectives. A menu strategy is the missing link to realizing menuboard optimization.
Before you decide what goes on your menuboard or where items will be placed, and long before you decide what the menuboard will look like, you need to create a menu strategy. A menu strategy is all about identifying and prioritizing your brand's desired business objectives as related to the food and beverage products offered. Surprisingly, many restaurant chains do not have a cohesive and well-documented menu strategy linked to high-level business objectives. It is the missing link to realizing menuboard optimization. As a result, strategy is not guiding what products are offered, their priorities, and how the menuboard should be designed to get the desired business results. Creating and agreeing on a menu strategy is a critical step in how effective menuboards are developed. Having a menu strategy navigates the way to optimized menuboards.
