A variety of sales and marketing techniques need to be applied when creating the physical menu covers for your restaurant, catering service or local club. The presentation of the menu covers not only brands your restaurant but also allows you to target the customers you want to serve right from the start. Menu covers are one of the first items that a customer sees and is crucial to establishing quality, price, and the theme of your restaurant.
Just remember the last time you visited a high-end restaurant and you were handed expensive looking menus encased in fancy leather menu covers. Now think about the last time you visited a local cafe where you were presented with multi-paged vinyl menu covers. At this point it is pretty clear what you can expect to pay and the quality of the food for the two different meals. However, this example does not prove whether the food, service, or experience at one establishment is superior to another, but it does show the perceived value a customer receives after entering a restaurant for the first time.
Whether you are opening a brand new restaurant or just looking for a face-lift with your current restaurant there are multiple factors that need to be considered when designing your menu covers. Here are the key elements that need to be considered to match up your restaurants theme, pricing, atmosphere, and quality.
Step1: Choose Your Menu Covers Design- Menu covers needs to be thought of as a sales presentation for your restaurant. This becomes a whole lot easier when you understand your customers and the price points you are trying to target. For example if you are a high end restaurant with a constantly changing menu then you want to go with leather menu covers where the interior pages can be easily changed. However, if you are a cafe style restaurant with a fixed menu then you would want to go with vinyl menu covers that can be re-used and easily cleaned. Just remember, the design of your menu covers needs to tie into the theme of your restaurant, while establishing a level of perceived value in the customers mind. The last thing you want is your customer to be shocked when they open up your menu covers.
