Food and beverage advertising can be an expensive and tedious project for small restaurants and food trucks. With an expansive selection of concession signs, there is an option for the newest of restaurants and the most popular of food trucks.
Long-Term Menu Boards
Printed menu boards are a great option for restaurants with a set menu design and food options. By using printed menu boards, your restaurant or food truck is able to create custom imagery that includes items available to order, item pricing, and any custom logos that represent your brand. Rather than using a dry erase or chalkboard, printed menu boards and concession signs allow for the restaurant’s creativity to flow, while presenting a more professional and established look to your brand. Printed menu boards work great for outdoor display, like at a beachfront snack shack! Printed menu boards are cost-effective and work well for restaurants and food trucks who do not expect many changes to their menu. By using printed menu boards for concession signs, long term creativity is established, attracting new customers, and enticing new faces to stop in and give it a try.
Interchangeable Menu Boards
Interchangeable menu boards, menu boards that are placed in a frame or similar, allow for different designs that can be easily changed in and out, which is ideal for new ideas and fluctuating prices and menu options. There are multiple styles of interchangeable menu boards, meaning that there is an option that will help the operation of your food service flourish. For food trucks with menus that change throughout the week, slide-in slide-out menu boards allow you to have the same creativity and customization as a printed menu board, but with the convenience of an installed frame for different means of display. Similar to daily menus, restaurants that serve different portion sizes for lunch and dinner can benefit from the slide-in slide-out menu boards, as it takes minimal effort to swap out the custom menu boards. For restaurants that aren’t changing menus daily or weekly, but aren’t quite ready to commit to permanent concession signs, magnetic menu boards serve as a solution for an in-between short- and long-term phase. Magnetic menu boards are installed with a panel that has a magnetic backing. The menu boards are then printed on a thin magnetic material that can be interchanged quickly and easily when needed. If your menu needs some adjusting, just create a new magnetic design and replace the old one, without having to move the panel and magnetic backing.
Snap frame menu boards are another great way of displaying menus and specials without committing to what design is used at all times. Snap frames are an aluminum “picture frame” style frame with flip up sides that snap back into place to hold the graphic. Snap frames are permanently installed as desired in a restaurant, but with the easy-to-use flip up sides, the menu board graphics can be swapped out at any time. Snap frame menu boards create a long term display option, but allow for interchangeable menu items to be placed inside, which is great for displaying promotions such as happy hour times and prices or monthly specials.
A final interchangeable concession sign option is to simply install dry erase menu boards or chalk menu boards surrounded by a frame. The dry erase and chalkboard options makes changing concession signs on the fly easy, giving you more time to focus on food and service. The frame installation creates a modern and professional design, while the dry erase and chalk menu boards allow for constant updates and changes!
Menu Boards and concession signs are a significant attribute to any growing or well established restaurant or food truck. Long term, printed menu boards, provides your brand with amazing customization options, while creating concession signs that attract attention and build reputation. Interchangeable menu boards give a restaurant the same customization options, but can help in cost efficiency for daily or weekly menu changes.
