  • 2. The Service Development Lifecycle
    • The right services will simultaneously enhance customer satisfaction and provide revenue and profit growth for the company .
  • 3. The new service product
    • PORTABLE DIGITAL RESTAURANT MENU could be defined as:
    • New to the world product - innovative product
    • Improvements and revisions of existing product
    • Cost reduction – new product that provides similar or better performance at lower costs in long term.
  • 4. The main use of the product
    • In a restaurant , a menu is the list of options for a diner to select. A menu may be a la Carte or Table d’h ôte, la Carta, Menu, M enü , επιλογές , M еню, 菜单 , メニュー
    • There are different types of menus: for breakfast , lunch and dinner and it depends on the restaurant and the management of the restaurant what kind of items will include and how often will change them .
  • 5. Menu Purpose
    • Is a h elpful utility for the visitor s of a restaurant to choose the correct dish that will satisfy their needs.
    • I s a form of advertising
    • P rinted menus frequently emphasize the processes used to prepare foods ( El Bulli - head chef, Ferran Adria )
    • call attention to exotic ingredients
    • add French , Japanese or other foreign language expressions to make the dishes appear sophisticated and exotic , even posh.
    • Part of the function of the menu is to impress customers with the notion that the dishes served at the restaurant require such skill , equipment, and exotic ingredients that the diners could not prepare similar foods at home.
  • 6. History
    • The word menu , like much of the terminology of cuisine , has French o rigin . It ultimately derives from Latin minutus , something made small . The original menus that offered consumers choices were prepared on a small blackboard , in French a carte ;
    • The original restaurants had no menus in the modern sense; these Table d’h ôte establishments served dishes that were chosen by the chef or the proprietors, and those who arrived ate what the house was serving that day .
  • 7. Restaurant menu evolution
    • The contemporary menu first appeared in the 2 nd half of the XVIII century . Here, instead of eating what was being served from a common table, restaurants allowed diners to choose from a list of unseen dishes , which were produced to order by the customer's selection and have a f ixed price ; the menu allowed customers to spend as much or as little money as they chose.
    • Nowadays the menu changed a lot due to the fashion trends, design influences, inventions, inspirations, ideas, new design technologies, Internet and more, but I think there’s more to expect from this service tool.

  • 11. Weaknesses of the paper menu
    • Limited space in the paper menu
    • Unnecessary maintenance costs for updating the menu
    • Expand the menu will mean update it in a paper every so often but there’s no guarantee that the new items on the menu will be successful
    • If there are more than 50 restaurants in an established chain it will be complicated to synchronize and prepare all the menus in order to meet the deadline
    • Late deliveries or errors in the menu cost money
    • Cannot ensure the changes occur in each location correctly etc.
  • 12. Convert Weakness in Strength
    • Basically the restaurants cannot show pictures of every single item on their paper menu nor translate them in more than 3-4 languages but what if restaurants offered, instead of a paper menu, an interactive kiosk-type screen embedded in /at the table !
    • The idea is to be developed a Portable Digital Restaurant Menu that could be a portable device as PDA or small platform like a digital frame or tablet with touchable screen, e-paper or maybe in the next 10 years we will have the pleasure to use the Microsoft surface in the restaurant.
  • 13. PDA Digital Frame
  • 14. Touchable Tablet PC
    • Restaurants in Japan replaced printed menu cards by tablet devices
    • The ISSA restaurant chain in Japan introduced an interactive ordering and menu system for their customers and increased the sales and profit.
  • 15.
  • 16. Bytes restaurant in Canterbury, England The menu is digital but not portable Very simple options and no pictures in the menu
  • 17. Digital developers in the branch
    • uWink Inc USA - digital entertainment company based in Los Angeles, California that develops interactive entertainment for restaurants, bars, and mobile devices .
    • MenuLogic , USA - has developed the iMENU® software platform, a fully-customizable, networked interactive menu application, complete with ordering, payment, and promotional modules that increase revenue growth and enhance the customer ordering experience.
    • Restaurant Innovations , UK producer of Automated Ordering System called iServe
