Say goodbye to static menu boards and hello to dynamic digital displays. Digital menu boards offer QSRs the flexibility to update menu items, promotions, and pricing in real time, catering to changing customer preferences, deals, and seasonal offerings. These eye-catching displays not only capture attention but also drive upsell opportunities and enhance the overall customer experience with a more efficient ordering process. Additionally, customers can view the items in their order on the screen, allowing them to make any corrections necessary before reaching the window.

Peerless-AV’s Outdoor Digital Menu Boards are all-weather rated and provide a simple installation process while allowing users to update the digital content remotely and in real-time.
