We spotted this custom table menu stand at a fast-food chain in the Philippines. What caught my attention is the functionality of the simple display. Lightweight and pretty sturdy, this type of table menu stand is perfect for small-scale businesses that are looking for affordable, yet long-lasting bar and restaurant advertising tools.

Menus come in various sizes and shapes. There are standalone menu stand that measures as high as 4ft, book-style holder, and table menu. Table menu stands not only serve as a decorative piece. As a point of sale display, it aims to create a personalized call-to-action for every customer.

In this example, you will see that the poster can be changed easily. This way, store managers are able to replace the advert whenever they have something new to promote- a new menu, contests, add-ons, and even discounts! Although it served its purpose effectively, this one is not branded or customized to reflect the company.

This signage kiosk is also a hand sanitizer dispenser, providing your customers protection against COVID 19.


4. Make it Fun and Attractive
