Takeout Menus For COVID-19

Making it easy for people to find your menu

These are challenging times. Your restaurant can't open, so your option is to shut your doors or move to a delivery and take-out business model.

If your plan is to offer delivery and takeout, then your big challenge is getting your menu out to those who are stuck at home. You can't hand out a paper menu, you've got to go digital. But there are so many options and channels that lead to dead ends that you need a solution that is fast, simple, and easy to do (we aren't all computer savvy tech nerds).

Shouldn't your menu look like that online? Your menu is a big part of the personality and character of your restaurant. You need to make sure it delivers that same experience when presented online. It builds trust and confidence in the quality in the meals and service you offer.

You've already got your menu as a PDF or Doc file. It's the one you send to the printer to get a couple hundred made for either your existing takeout menu or your at table menu.

Your online menu can reach your customer anywhere and look good doing it. You'll even be able to send push notifications to keep customer up to date with your latest offerings, hours, and specials.

You Lose Patrons When You Share Your Menu As A PDF

PDFs are a terrible way to treat your potential and existing customer. No one wants to open a PDF file attachment in an email, save a file on their device (only to forget to also save it on the other 5 devices they also use), or scroll through an uninspiring vertical, flat presentation. Don't believe me? Try viewing the PDF file of the booklet above.

Open PDF (6mb)

That's a pretty big, tedious file. Lots of emails can't support that size of an attachment and asking a customer to download your menu on their dataplan is pretty insulting. If you're trying to influence customers, you need to start sharing your menu online the way it was meant to be experienced. Just like the one above.

Thought Experiment
Check out this menu. Here it is as a PDF and as an online Simplebooklet.

PDF Digital

Which one do you think you could easily share on social networks, send in email, and post to websites? Which one encourages your patron to engage with you? Here's a hint, not the 8.5MB PDF.

The Way Digital Menus Are Meant To Be

Simplebooklet can take your Menu and give it digital superpowers.

All you do is take the PDF or DOC version of your menu that you currently send to your printer and upload it to the Simplebooklet platform. Choose from one of our professional presentations and add your restaurant logo. Put in contact information so your potential customers can connect with you.

Simplebooklet automates everything else. Search discovery is optimized with meta and structured data. Links get activated. Your patrons can keyword search for any information in your menu. And deep-dive analytics, including realtime Google Analytics reporting, give you the insight to act on all your engagement.

Take it up another level by using push notifications to let your patrons know when you have a special menu or a deal they can take advantage of. Your customer doesn't even need to have your menu open to receive a notification.
