With the advent of the internet, more activities have gone digital. From finding work to dating to even ordering food, users have chosen the convenience and flexibility of digitization. Of course, businesses and companies forecasted such demands in the market and answered consumers’ calls.

Nowadays, digitizing businesses is easier than ever. For example, food establishments don’t have to hire a coding whiz to make their menus available online. With powerful platforms like Issuu, creating an accessible online restaurant menu is a breeze.

Getting started is easy: upload your PDF, watch it transform into a flipbook, add multimedia elements, and share it everywhere! Getting more eyes on a digital restaurant menu, and thus more orders and subsequent bookings, is a surefire way of not only spreading the reach of a business but also attracting, engaging, and maintaining customers.

Another great thing about using Issuu’s all-in-one platform for your online restaurant menu? Whenever you edit and re-upload it, the URL stays the same. That means customers with your restaurant menu bookmarked on their devices will always have the most updated content without scrolling around for a new link. Even better, by using the Embed and Fullscreen Sharing features, your digital menu can be available and easily viewed directly on the official website of your restaurant or a food critic’s blog.
