Wakefield Research poll conducted in December 2020 revealed 88 percent of restaurants said they would consider switching to digital menus.
Seventy-eight percent out of the 500 surveyed restaurants said that there are significant benefits to digital menus. That is according to Square’s The Future of Restaurants Report: 2022 Edition
One purpose of a digital menu for restaurants is to provide a safe and convenient dine-in ordering system. This promotes inclusive and accessible restaurant ordering for customers with disabilities and special needs.
In 1990, a civil rights law called Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) sets basic standards for accessibility in public spaces. However, there is no government agency or third-party agency that monitors or enacts this law.
As a result, restaurants are still lenient with their hospitality management towards people with disabilities.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, sixty-one million adults in the United States live with a disability. With this, persons with disabilities are the largest minority group in the US.
Restaurants should highlight accessible and inclusive services for persons with disabilities. Customers, regardless of their capabilities, should have the same equal access to restaurant hospitality.
Using a digital restaurant table menu can make the dining experience of customers with disabilities and impairments more manageable, enjoyable, and hassle-free.
