Right now, the hospitality industry is taking hygiene and sanitization more seriously than ever. And that’s saying a lot. They already took it incredibly seriously. More seriously than pretty much everyone but surgeons.
But cleanliness has been thrust front and center in 2020. That's why digital wine lists are becoming so popular. In fact, there's no two ways about it, a QR code menu is the future. Any QR code statistics or analysis of the future of touchless menus will lead you to that conclusion.
So we reached out to our friends and family in the food and drink industry. We wanted to know what they’ve been using, or plan to use, to stay on top of their business’s hygiene. We also read and reread guidelines from the federal and local governments, The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the National Restaurants Association (NRA).
After many conversations and much research, these are the items that, as a whole, people found most effective and most useful.
We broke it up into a few different categories. Take a gander.

And they’re simply to create and maintain. Using a QR code generator, all you do is upload a file and generate a QR code. Beware, though, there are big QR code risks if you’re using free online QR code generators.
Beyond menus, QR code uses are numerous. There’s QR code marketing, contactless ordering, touchless payments, you name it. Let us walk you through exactly how QR codes will make a lot of this cleaning a non-issue.
