One of the biggest challenges with Crypto is the inability to use it in our daily lives. All that is about to change, especially in the hospitality industry. My Menu – a leading digital menu platform operating in 3500+ restaurants, and 450+ hotels across 70+ countries, allows guests to settle their bills with cryptocurrency. Restaurants using My Menu can switch on this feature from their backend.
My Menu, originally a Tablet Menu platform, saw tremendous growth since the start of the pandemic because of the rise in demand for contactless QR Menus otherwise known as scan menu. Over the last two years, the company has established itself as the most advanced digital menu system in the world. My Menu boasts of direct integration with industry leaders such as Oracle Micros and also traditional payment gateways such as Stripe, 2Checkout, and Checkout.
The idea originates from Prateek Dayal, Co-Founder, and seasoned investor. He said, “I have personally been investing in the crypto space for more than 4 years. It is one of the most exciting financial opportunities available to investors at this time. The only hindrance I see in the growth of Crypto is the inability to use it in our daily lives. Hence, I have been advocating to enable crypto payments for My Menu since we started and now I am happy we have the technical interface in place to launch this feature!”
Klaus Pigorsch, Managing Director of Tower Links Golf Course and one of the early adaptors of My Menu and Crypto payments, had this to say – “Being a German national I firmly believe technology plays an important role in our business. We have been using My Menu for over 3 years and have seen a significant increase in our average check value thanks to My Menu. We cater to a lot of international golfers, some of them are into crypto so the feature to accept Crypto as a form of payment has been very well received by our guests.”
Manzeer, CTO of My Menu and a Crypto enthusiast said, “Accepting Crypto Currency has always been a ‘must-have feature’ on our development list. The growing number of requests from our clients pushed us to prioritize the release of this feature”.
Abhishek Bose, CEO, and Co-founder of My Menu said, “Being a company that is Head Quartered in Dubai, we are following the lead of the Dubai government and its initiatives that aims to make the Emirate the global center of crypto assets. As the world evolves and Crypto becomes mainstream, we at My Menu are ahead of the curve and ready to address the demand!”
My Menu is used by the most popular hotel brands such as Sofitel, Fairmont, Raffles, Marriott, JW Marriott Marquis, Sheraton, Westin, Le Meridien, and popular restaurant brands such as Nandos, Carluccios, Hard Rock Café, Jumeirah Restaurants, Noodle House, Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen and many more. It is a corporate standard for Accor hotels and a preferred solution with other groups.
When asked, why the most popular brands choose My Menu, Abhishek Bose had this to say – “Our primary objective is to UPSELL the food, and our clients see an immediate increase in revenue by 30%. We achieve this by making the menu truly interactive by showcasing attractive food videos and running advanced campaigns. Our built-in automated CRM helps retain customers and increases repeat footfall for our restaurant clients. Hence our growth is organic.”
