The post-holiday lull is the perfect time to consider your goals for the year, and a great opportunity to evaluate your menus. A menu is your most powerful selling tool, so don’t let it be an afterthought. Follow these 5 tips to be sure your menu is really working for you.

1. Update Your Look

If you’ve had your current menu design for a while, think about what could be improved. Want to improve sales by moving desserts or signature cocktails to a table tent? Need to condense your wine list into an easier format? Ready for a new takeout style? Whatever you want to try, our menu experts are standing by to help. Give us a call at 1-800-452-2234.

2. Trim Your Offering

Winter is a great time to look critically at your menu. Which items are hot sellers, and which are duds? Don’t hesitate to remove low-performing items; it will help streamline everything from stock and prep to customer ordering. You’ll also be clearing space to try new items that could become new favorites.

3. Add Visual Appeal

As they say, people eat with their eyes first. Including tempting images of items on your menu can have a measurable impact on sales. But of course, low-quality or unappetizing images will have the opposite effect, so it’s worth investing in quality photos.

4. Get Some Fresh Prints

Are your tabletop menus looking worn out? Stains, creased corners, and torn lamination can distract customers and cheapen the experience. With new prints on our top-notch menu paper, you’ll feel confident that your menus make the best impression. Order prints today and you’ll have new menus on the tables by next week.
