Indoor & Outdoor Restaurant Sign Solutions

Gone are the days of messy chalkboard menus, letter boards, acrylic menu panels, and light boxes. Commercial digital signs are simplifying restaurant menu display and advertising for companies across the country. Outdoor restaurant signage weatherproof enclosures paired with digital monitors are becoming the menu board of choice since these signage options have text, photo and video display capabilities as well as audio. Many digital displays even have easy to use scheduling features across multiple displays.

In the past, even indoor restaurant digital signage has been easy to damage with heat, flying objects, and vandalism. However, paired with any standard TV or digital monitor, protective digital display enclosures and weatherproof digital display cases offer secure, tamperproof, water-resistant, durable signage and digital menu board solutions.

Outdoor Bar TV Enclosures | Club & Bar Digital Signage

If you’re a bar owner, you may be wondering, “how do I proof my TV for outdoors?” or "what are the benefits of digital signage?” From showing outdoor branding for your restaurant (with video and sound incorporated if you use a digital signage TV), to showing sports and popular TV programs for guests, to using digital signage for menu boards, to displaying information in the kitchen such as schedules or orders, TVs and digital signage streamline communication and entertainment, reduce paper use for things like menus and schedules, and generally create a more modern feel for your business.

Bars are magnets for entertainment hungry guests but they’re also a hub for excitement, which means things can get a little out of hand. That is why many sports bars and grills are choosing protective digital display enclosures for indoor and outdoor TV protection solutions. When flying beer bottles are a regular occurrence, outdoor bar TV enclosures like The Display Shield come in handy for protecting TV and display investments. Not to mention, many restaurants, bars, and pubs are located on the beach and deal with salt-water corrosion when trying to place TV outside.

The Display Shield is made from long-lasting HMWPE outdoor plastic that is not damaged by salt, offering increased corrosion prevention and saving restaurant and bar owners on TV replacement costs.

Fast Food & Restaurant Drive Thru Menu Boards

Digital displays are perfect for fast food and restaurant drive thru menu boards. Companies can load their menu or utilize food industry digital signage software to deliver their menu via video, images, text, and sound – no limitations! And for indoor or outdoor scenarios where threats like tampering or weather are a concern, TV and digital signage enclosures are the perfect protection solution.

Food Truck Digital Menu Board Solutions

You might have the best food in town, but if customers don’t order it, your food truck is doomed. That’s why it’s so important to make sure your food truck digital menu board is the best it can be. Taking a few simple steps to plan, organize, and design your food truck menu can make a world of difference to your mobile food business’ success.
