With summer patios in full swing, and dining rooms beginning to re-open at limited capacities, restaurants have been forced to come up with new ways to serve their guests safely and efficiently.
A fully contactless dining experience has been a learning curve for many, especially for those working in the hospitality industry, and it’s something we all will have to get used to for a while.
Restaurants are using their website menus to eliminate physical menus and asking their guests to open the websites on their phones to browse and order. It’s not only encouraging a contactless experience but it’s also a more sustainable approach to menus.
What’s the quickest way to pull up those menus? QR codes!
Guests can quickly access a restaurants’ website menu and order directly by scanning the QR code using their built-in camera apps on their iPhone or Android smartphones. No downloading of apps required.
Here’s how to do it.
- Open your dining menu up on your website browser.
- Copy (CTRL+C) the menu URL from the address bar.
If you’re a Sociavore customer, you can obtain it from your Sociavore Dashboard.
- Plug the URL into our free QR code generator.
- Download the QR code and print physical copies which can be placed on to a poster or anywhere on the table.
- Once scanned, the menu pops right away.
Do you want guests to place an order directly from your online menu?
Last month, we launched Tableside Dining, a system that has helped restaurants re-open their patios, allowing guests to order food + drinks securely, all without touching a menu, tapping a machine, signing a receipt, or waiting in line. Learn more in our latest blog post.
