If your guests have resisted using QR codes to facilitate their interactions with you, perhaps thinking they are just a relic of the pandemic, they may need you to demonstrate how much these tools can enhance their experience with you. After all, when a guest is waiting in a line out your door to be seated, what’s not to like about being able to scan your menu, see photos of every dish, get the latest updates about what is available, and even place their order (with great accuracy) at the very moment they arrive at their table? Or how about when a guest wants to place an impulse order of extra drinks or desserts? QR codes can help you capitalize on those moments (and even upsell guests on additional items) while taking pressure off your front-of-house staff and helping them turn tables more quickly. You can promote QR codes as a sustainable step too – fewer paper menus and receipts can send a positive message about your business. And these codes aren’t going away – according to research from Statista, approximately 89 million smartphone users in the U.S. scanned a QR code on their device in 2022, an increase of 26 percent over 2020, and QR codes are expected to reach 100 million users in the U.S. by 2025. Across restaurant categories, there are ways to use these codes to boost your efficiency – and the morale of both staff and guests. Have you tapped into their full potential?
