Recently health departments across the United States have required that restaurants who are providing menus to guest use either digital menus that can be cleaned between users or disposable menus that are used only one time. This has raised and interesting question, are Digital menus cost effective in a Covid-19 world or are disposable menus the way to go?
Well lets look at the cost of a paper disposable menu. If you are having these printed yourself on a desktop printer, you might get this as low as 0.04 per page if your just doing the most basic black and white and about 0.40 per page if your doing color with a nice finish and good paper.
If you serve only 250 guest per day you could be looking at cost between $300.00 and $3000.00 per month
If you went with a digital menu like Aldelo Kiosk, and you’re an Aldelo Pay merchant. You simply would need to purchase the iPad. (Aldelo Express Kiosk is free to Aldelo Pay merchants)
This means even if you are a small restaurant and serving a small number of guest this is most likely a very good place to save money and give your guest the ability to use an interactive menu to order there own food and drinks, eliminating errors. For those guests who do not want to order themselves, this is still and interactive menu that allows the staff to order for them at the table, Also eliminating many ordering mistakes.
Conclusion Digital menus are more cost effective !
