Menu QR Codes for Restaurants

< Coronavirus Response Kit

QR Code Usage Takes Off

Restaurants everywhere have adopted QR codes as part of their front-line marketing efforts during COVID. Two things led to this skyrocketing use. Obviously, the pandemic made social distancing critical for restaurant operations. Less obviously, the technology matured to the point where it's fully integrated into every smartphone camera and the average customer understands how it works. Simply point your camera at the dotted square and a link pops up on your smartphone that can take you anywhere on the web.

Restaurants are discovering that QR Codes provide many benefits beyond contactless access to a digital menu. They allow restaurants to cater to younger audiences that do everything on their phones. They also create opportunities to streamline other services, like ordering and payment. The advantages are so numerous that QR Codes should stay relevant long after the pandemic, not as a total replacement for the traditional restaurant experience, but as a convenience with many added benefits.
