The most popular way to use a menu QR code is on restaurant and cafe tables. With a digital version available, a paper copy doesn’t always have to be handed out. What is great is that the customer can instantly access the menu as soon as they reach the table.

Save printing costs

A detailed menu

Oftentimes on paper menus, restaurants only include the name of the dish without ingredients as it takes up too much space. Whereas with a QR code Menu, they can include all the ingredients and even calories so that customers can clearly understand what they are ordering and if they aren’t allergic to any ingredients.

A social media link next to the menu

Call-to-action buttons

In addition to your menu, you can add CTA buttons that lead to the restaurant’s social media pages or review websites. All information is stored in one QR code making it accessible and comfortable for customers.
