Order & Pay Essentials - Instagram quality photos on your menu? Yes, please! 

How does your restaurant showcase its best work?

If you don't take your digital menu seriously, then the answer is... It doesn't! Customers are going out less and less, and this downward trend is only going to continue. The quality of your service and food is one thing. But making your food stand out from the crowd is a whole different game. Good photographs of your food increase the chances of your customers buying more, through order & pay.

Serving better times

But what does this actually mean? For you, as a restaurant owner, this means two things:

  • You need to deliver quality food and drinks
  • You need to deliver exceptional experiences to your guests

How do you do that in one go? One option is to have a digital order & pay menu with Photos. Be in control of what your guest see as their first introduction to your digital menu. The possibilities are endless. And as we all know... People buy with their eyes.

Guests love Photos on digital menus because it’s a great way to know exactly what they're ordering. It’s like in-person Instagram.

But there’s more, storekit partner restaurants see greater spends per head when their digital order & pay menu have Photos.

I know what you’re thinking… I can’t even take good selfies. I get it, and neither can I. Photos take a little bit of effort, some editing, and a few tries. But what you’ll get is a higher spend per head, which you can’t afford NOT to do. Why not leave this to the professionals? Tap here to find out more about our Food photography services.
