For more than a quarter of a century, King·Casey has been helping leading QSR and Fast Casual brands increase sales and profits by dramatically improving their menuboard strategies and designs. Strategically sound menuboard optimization generates significant returns on investment. We routinely see sales increases of 5-10% for key products and categories. Optimized menuboards can also shave precious seconds off the order process speeding thru-put and boosting customer satisfaction and loyalty.


The menuboard is your number one sales tool. A strategically designed menuboard persuades and helps customers decide what to order. Research shows that 56% of customers can be influenced by the menuboard. 74% of customers say that an easy-to-read menuboard is their top priority. In a recent discussion with a CEO of a QSR chain, he commented that, “menuboard optimization is one of the best investments my company can make. It far exceeds almost any other strategy I could pursue to increase profits”.

Best-selling highest margin offerings should be placed in these hot spots. Just one of ten critical strategies we explore when optimizing a client's menuboard communications.
