Digital menu board displays are an exciting menu board solution for any restaurant environment! New technology makes it convenient to easily change out your local menu digital boards from your office; updating chain restaurant menu listings and screens nationwide remotely from one central computer saves time and money for any foodservice owner.

 

   

Enhancing the "Guest Experience" is becoming the tag line for QSR and Fast Casual restaurants today. Digital screens encourage engagement with colorful display graphics and even local promotion of area events or your LTO of the week. 

 

Keep your branding message consistant between your drive-thru menu board and your indoor menu board with one easy update. Multi-store operators cite the ease of updating menu board content consistantly across all their locations when using digital cloud software capabilities.

 
   
                                           

The Howard Company's digital menu display screen packages for restaurants is gaining marketshare because its easy-to-operate menu board software system is INCLUDED in each Howard Digital menu board package. 

 

Utilize one digital display screen to show your daily specials or promotions, or use a system of screens to display your entire menu with colorful changing graphics and live news or sports streaming feeds.

 

Think about installing an "Info Center" digital screen in your lobby or office break room! Keep your employees updated with office activities or staff promotions. A digital screen in your office lobby welcomes guests while promoting your brand.

We also have a great solution for limited space needs. Our new 38" wide stretch screen offers a great option for use above a checkout counter or coffee station.

Digital Drive-Thru Menu Board

Background

A presence in West Texas and Eastern New Mexico since 1957, the familiar yellow and black Kent Oil shield has helped make life easy for thousands of customers in over 80 locations. In the 1970s, the company moved away from the familiar style service station concept into convenience stores selling thousands of products. The last Kent Oil Service Station was torn down and built into a new Kent Kwik Convenience Store in the early 1980s. Today Kent Kwik is a major brand providing quality products and services to West Texas customers.

The Howard Company/Mainstreet Menus was the menu board supplier for their store outlets. Kent Oil management contacted us about updating their store locations with new indoor and drive-thru products.

Discussion & Development

The Howard team used a site evaluation approach to determine store layouts and to determine what solutions might fit their needs. The convenience stores were looking to make improvements to the indoor menu board signage plus research drive-thru options as they looked to expand not only their food service to a drive-thru lane, but for store patrons to be able to purchase any manner of goods and have them delivered through their pick-up and pay window.

The Midland, Texas, test location was chosen to upgrade from static menu boards to digital menu systems over the food center and the beverage station for the interior upgrade, and a full drive-thru lane was planned including an order station canopy, drive-thru menu board, and Techknow order confirmation kiosk on the outside of the store. The goal was for Kent Kwik to be able to operate their drive-thru lane 24 hours a day.

Test Installation

The Howard production crew worked with Kent Kwik’s team to deliver all products to meet their installation schedule and timelines. Our digital staff communicated with Kent’s tech team remotely to assure correct installation of the digital systems. The Midland site was able to be up and running with Howard equipment on the first day of operation, happily meeting Kent’s expectations.

Thank you so much!! Everything looks great. I can't wait to play with it!” said Stormy Williams, member of the Kent Oil management team.
