Your wine list demands the plushest menu covers. They should be the finest at your establishment, better than the menu covers used for foods and other beverages. We are not saying that the menu covers for the foods and other drinks should be of inferior quality but the one for your wine list should be superlative in every way. The material needs to be of premium quality, the build and design, the texture and the feel should be satiating and it should clearly stand out among the rest. It should not be loud in any manner. The presentation should be subtle but the establishment must make a branding statement with the choice of menu covers for the wine list.
Many restaurants and bars, pubs and clubs serve wine but they have a limited inventory. It is normal to wonder if a separate wine menu is necessary. If you don’t serve more than a handful of wines then there is no need to have a segregated menu. However, there is nothing wrong with a menu dedicated to wine only. This menu should not include beers, whiskeys and cocktails among other alcoholic beverages. Any place that has an expansive collection of wines should always have a dedicated menu for them. As far as the choice of material is concerned, there are some truly special options.
Leather is often the de facto choice for wine menu covers.
You can opt for premium leather or you may go for faux pas leather. There are many variants of leatherette that can be just as elegant as leather but anyone who is familiar with different types of authentic and faux pas leathers will know the difference. You may also opt for original cork menu covers. There is faux pas cork as well. The substantial difference in price may be a compelling factor but do bear in mind the impact on branding. If you have some rare and expensive wines in your cellar and you intend to impress some connoisseurs, then the best option is to go for leather or cork menu covers for the wine list. Anything less would be a disservice to the prized collection of wine and also to the standard of hospitality you wish to uphold. Be equally attentive to the design, build and size as you would focus on the material and cost. Menu covers for a wine list should be nothing short of perfection.
Many restaurants have one menu cover for food, another for drinks and perhaps one for desserts. Many restaurants have only one menu cover for everything they have to offer. Regardless of this variance, many places have some type of supplementary display to place special menus. You may have a dedicated menu cover for different offerings and you may use the same one throughout the year. Or, you can have a special menu cover for specific occasions.
It is needless to mention that having different menu covers for specific occasions would cost you money. So it is absolutely normal for anyone to not consider such an option. Yet, the benefits may be able to convince you otherwise. There are places that have different types of menu covers for special occasions and they have reaped the rewards.
One of the immediate benefits is the impact on branding. Many restaurants invest in a substantial overhaul for special occasions, be it Christmas or New Year, Easter or St. Patrick’s Day, Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day among others. These changes in décor, menus and perhaps freebies incur a cost. These expenses are seen as investments that reap rewards. These initiatives are often deemed imperative for branding, to stay relevant on these days and to have more people walk in to partake in the celebrations. The same can be achieved with a special menu cover for specific occasions.
A special menu cover will actually go beyond branding.
It shows that the restaurant cares for the occasion and is willing to take an extra step to make the customers feel special. Everyone knows that restaurants deck up for special occasions to make the dining experience a bit more memorable. It is all about having fun, feeling special and cared for, indulging in a different experience than usual and spending some quality time with family and friends. A special menu cover will make patrons feel special.
Many special occasions have meticulously curated menus. From lavish brunches to themed dinners, the spectrum of possibility is fascinating. Just as you would have a sought after menu, it is only fitting that such a menu is presented with a special menu cover. Such types of menu cover can always be reused. You don’t need to invest in one new menu cover for every occasion and you certainly don’t need to discard one after using it for a day. You can keep using them for more than one occasion for several years.
There are many ways you can shop for menu cover for your restaurant, bar, pub, hotel or club. You can go online and browse as many stores as you want. You can physically shop for menu cover. You can contact an expert and schedule an appointment, either at their office or at your establishment. Whichever approach suits you is fine but you should know the importance of conducting a side-by-side comparison of different types of menu cover. We are not talking about virtual comparisons. We cannot stress enough on the importance of a real assessment, preferably at your restaurant, bar, pub or hotel.
You can conveniently compare different types of menu cover online.
You can study the pros and cons of various materials. You can gauge the difference in sizes and shapes. You can also get a fair idea of how the texture would actually be. These virtual comparisons are great because you can check innumerable designs in minutes and use available tools to sift through the ever expanding inventory of menu cover of multiple brands. What the virtual comparisons don’t help you with is an actual assessment. This is because the menu cover will have to complement the setting you have at your business. This can be ascertained only when you conduct a real side-by-side comparison.
Let us presume you are sorted as far as the material is concerned. You have decided that leather will be the best material. It could be one of the other popular materials as well. Now consider the actual colour and texture of the menu cover. You will have a certain ambience, a particular décor and you would want to have a menu cover that complements everything about your place. Would the colour and the texture that you have liked online be really complementary? Would it truly accentuate the dining or clubbing experience of your patrons?
An actual assessment, wherein you can hold different types of menu cover in your hand, place them on the tables and check out how they look, get your employees to try them out as customers, will tell you if they are an optimum fit. This assessment may not be possible with every vendor or supplier. But it can be the key difference between choosing something you may rue later and picking a design, material, colour and texture that will truly enhance the setting at your place and actually enhance the branding of your business.
