The impact of Coronavirus is subsiding in different countries across the world. In turn, the hospitality industry players have their fingers crossed hoping that the decline will bring positive change in 2021.
Since the pandemic started ravaging economies across the globe, QR code menu and online ordering have become a norm in the hospitality industry and particularly restaurants.
QR code menus have been the most prevalent form of digitization adopted by hotels and restaurants during the lockdown days. Even though the older generations still prefer traditional table service, millennials and people in the generation Z age brackets saw this as a convenient way to serve oneself from the palm of the hand. And considering that these two groups form a significant proportion of the population, you can as well assume switching your physical menu with a QR code will likely attract more sales. In fact, 2020 research indicates that contactless menus and the whole aspect of self-service increase the order values significantly.
Further, given the restrictions imposed to curb the spread of the virus, contactless menus were, and remain the number one way of reducing contact between restaurant wait staff and customers. However, the QR menu can only be used effectively for table ordering as opposed to pickup and delivery orders. But wait a minute, have you considered online ordering?
It would be an understatement if we said that online ordering has benefited restaurants during the pandemic. In fact, many restaurant managers and owners can attest that online ordering has been the lifeline for their premises and that it kept them in business while other ventures were closing.
