Graphic Signs and Photos

Good image with leave guests with ‘watery mouths’ that will increase the value of the dish over the price.

Price Manipulation

Also known as cost anchoring, is setting your most expensive dish near regular dishes. If your menu is segmented by sectors, each one would include a higher priced menu item, making the other choices look like a deal when compared. Tying your prices, lets you discover the value of your dishes you need to sell the mostly.

Minimalist

Having few options only on the menu is actually an advantage, if you have a lot of menu items you can’t really play with the design and visuals in order to increase profits, this also means fewer food costings and inventory management software features.

Not to mention, fewer menu options means less inventory and reduced waste costs.

Tell A Story Trough Good Copy

Focusing on the meal description and having them written as if they are small poems that evoke nostalgic emotions for the diners. Avoid proclaiming you have the best dishes ever, instead focus on something more similar that anyone can relate, example, “English breakfast just as the one your grandmother would cook for you on a spring morning.”

Digitized menus can also provide you with real-time changes, monitoring and tracking on each dish, revenue per table tracking and much more features that are integrated with your Point of Sale system and inventory management software.
