Visitors to the 2012 National Restaurant Association Show, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL, 5-8 May, 2012 will have the opportunity to visit the Chicago’s Museum of Science & Industry, Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, Joliet Junior College and Central Dupage Hospital to view Epicure Digital Menu Systems with nutritional menu labeling.

Epicure Digital Systems will be exhibiting in booth #1513 at the show. Visitors to the booth will have the opportunity to view a large selection of digital menu boards featuring nutritional menu labeling.

Epicure Digital is revolutionizing the point of sale in restaurants with its digital menu system. “Epicure Digital designs customized digital menu boards that solve our client's complex menu engineering and point-of-sale marketing issues”, explained Harvey Friedman, Founder and President, Epicure Digital Systems.

The nutritional labels used on the digital menu boards display as nutritional data, nutritional scoring, and icons representing food groups, healthy choices, allergens, vegan, vegetarian, local and organic, whichever and whenever are applicable. Friedman continued, “Using Epicure Digital LiveMenu™ and LiveText™ intuitive user interfaces, operators can easily and quickly change prices and menus, schedule menus and promotions by day part and menu cycle, and display videos, photos and live feeds from the Internet on LCD menu boards and signage. These tools provide more efficiency, revenues and profitability, and help customers waiting in line at a restaurant’s point of sale to make informed choices and achieve a balanced life by eating well.”

The Wildflower Cafe at the new 866,000-square-foot Elmhurst Memorial Hospital offers healthier food choices and is the latest addition to a growing list of area hospital cafeterias that serve up tasty, nutritious meals. When the Hospital decided to implement the Epicure Digital Menu Board System, "the plan was to offer more selections of food, healthier, and more cooked-to order food", said Dave Reeves, Director of Hospitality Services at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital. "Each food station features a wide-screen LCD Epicure Digital Menu Board displaying its menu with nutritional data for calories, protein, carbs, sodium, fat, saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol. We wanted to display the nutritional content of our menu items so our customers would make the best menu selections for their individual needs. The Epicure system accomplishes this goal.” explained Mr. Reeves. "By creatively combining information and nutritional menu labeling with motion graphics and food photography, Epicure Digital produced visually compelling multimedia menus to help our customers make more informed nutritional choices and enhance their dining experience."
