In London, an Asian Fusion restaurant called Inamo has come up with interactive tables. Using a touch screen display that also serves as the table top, diners could easily order food. While waiting, they can play some games and even watch a live feed of what’s going on in the kitchen.
Not bad, but definitely very expensive for a small business owner to replicate for his or her own restaurant. We also wonder what would happen if somebody’s drink spills on the screen or if the display glass is broken. That would mean another expenditure for replacing the table.
So what can you do to still have interactive tables at your restaurant at just a fraction of the cost?
Use QR codes.
You can offer the same level of interactivity with QR codes on table tops as buying all these expensive touch displays. It may be more low-tech than having a touch screen display, but QR codes can easily serve the purpose.
You can help your diners while away boredom by providing QR codes that can take them to online games that they can play on their phones.
Or you could simply provide your Wi-Fi password via a QR code on their table tops.
If you want to give them a glimpse of the kitchen, then you can put up a link behind the QR code that does exactly that.
You can also host a scavenger hunt all around your restaurant using QR codes to hide your clues.
The great thing about QR codes is that they are practically free to create and you can change it as often as you want. Plus, you do not have to worry about your customers spilling their drinks on it. Even if they do, you can just as easily replace them.
So go ahead, offer a new level of interactivity to your restaurant tables with QR codes!
