Do you need a fresh and exciting look for your restaurant menu board or retail store? Have an unusual space where off-the-shelf systems won't fit? 

All of The Howard Company's magnetic non-illuminated menu board solutions are designed around what works best for you, from colorful full graphic images of your food or retail products to combining graphic images with removable strips and price chips.

Special size and shape requirements are not a problem! We offer several non-illuminated menu board options to fit almost any food service or retail store needs, and all include a free design to make it your own!

Benchmark Menu Board


The Benchmark is our most dynamic magnetic non-illuminated menu board solution!  We customize the size to fit your design requirements. The panels can be mounted flat on the wall or angled away from the wall using our unique dual bar mounting system. 

Our experience in menu board design gives you the edge in arranging your menu listings for maximum impact. Your menu layout will be designed to optimize viewing area with beautiful color graphics showcasing your menu. If you have promotional items to frequently change out, magnetic sections are set up to allow easy changes. Flavors of the day or price changes are not an issue with magnet strips and number chips! Integrate a magnetic board with a digital display to grab your guest's eye and keep them engaged - ease into digital menu boards without the expense of replacing your entire system. 

The Benchmark's light weight panels are easy to move around – switch up panels to update your look without investing in a whole new menu board solution!

Are you compliant with the FDA mandated food labeling laws? Update your menu board with calories; we can guide you to help you get into compliance.

This magnetic non-illuminated menu board works for you, not asking you to modify your requirements to fit the system!
