Restaurants use QR codes to provide contactless menus, streamline ordering, collect customer feedback, promote loyalty programs, and share nutritional information. This technology improves the dining experience by making interactions more efficient, even enabling social distancing and improved hygiene.

Customers can sit down at a table and immediately scan a QR code to get access to the menu (sometimes with a choice of language options). With a dynamic code, restaurants can even update their QR code menu to reflect daily specials and up-to-the-minute changes.

Including a QR code on the bill or receipt at the end of a meal can also make it easier for customers to review their experience and spread positive word of mouth, with codes linking directly to the relevant Google review page, for example.
