The Howard Company, Inc., industry leader in innovative menu board designs, introduced a new state-of-the art drive-thru solution for restaurants with limited drive-thru lane space. The “All-In-One” system incorporates a canopy with a menu board and communications system or an order confirmation module all on one post and foundation. The new drive-thru option offers a flexible, high quality, maintenance free design, plus an easy-to-update menu board and communication system all in one package.
Designed and built for the restaurant operator with limited drive-thru space, The Howard Company combines its new flat-top canopy with a multi-panel menu board. The canopy provides comfort and a sense of security combined with protection from rain snow, sun and wind. The rotating “swing away” roof design (helix) is standard, reducing damage to the canopy from over-sized vehicles. With seven standard colors and custom color matching, the drive-thru system will enhance branding outside as well as inside.
Digital menu board panels or LED illuminated static panels with full graphics offer an unlimited array of options to suit any drive-thru situation. The Howard Company offers free menu board designs for a menu display that maximizes and custom food and beverage listings for the highest ROI.
Drive-thru guests order using a standard speaker/microphone system, or include an order confirmation system to tie in with in-house POS and reduce order errors. The All-In-One removes the need for a separate speaker post or communications system.
The Howard Company All-In-One Drive-Thru Solution boasts considerable construction and installation cost savings; one foundation, conduit for high and low voltage component needs, and menu board/order confirmation components in one package.
“The unique canopy design and unlimited menu panel options along with the incorporated communication systems combine for a great product that fills the needs of restaurants who have limited drive-thru space but want all the elements of a full service drive-thru lane,” says Doug Watson, Howard Company president and CEO.
