We are guessing you wouldn't expect to walk into your favorite upscale Charlottesville restaurant and see digital signage featuring their menu items and ingredients. But, digital signage is quickly becoming a big topic in the word of fast food restaurants. New legislation in some states and people being more aware of what they are eating in general is leading to the need to publish nutritional and calorie information on menu boards. Because menus are always changing and their restaurants have thousands of locations, this can be very expensive and time consuming. Digital signage is the perfect solution. It can even be updated from one location when a menu changes.
We think this is something that you will see in school systems in the coming years as well to indicate the day's menu, nutritional information and it could even include icons next to healthier items to teach students to make good choices. Check out this article from Digital Signage Weekly on this subject.
