Is your menu memorable

According to Gallup, a basic menu is glanced at for merely 100 seconds or so.
Will it be the offering, or the writing that might make the difference.
Last spring, dished a provocative item about basic cafeteria items–
some tagged with simple names, and others amplified in other upscale manner. Some of the embellished fare were tagged with sensory tags ( buttery, mellow ).
Other tags were geographical ( provencal, Gulf bred ).
Or sentimental tags ( original recipe, farmstyle ).
These items were rotated amid some scientific sampling, and patrons were asked to complete a survey.
Findings determined that…
  • apparently expressive menu listings increased sales by slightly more than 25%
  • definitive labels reinforced perceptions about “quality” or “value”
  • eloquent labels reinforced perceptions about the restaurant as being trendy or a classic haven
  • and whether reinforced perceptions enhanced patronage
Thusly whether wording and tags solidify patron satisfaction with the menu fare and the restaurant.  And repeat visits.
Review the entire article at:
Besides the science of it all…have your menu draw approval simply by its menu cover.  A soft buttery suede, or supple ostrich conveys impeccable presence which likewise entices the culinary experience.
