Facebook Gives Restaurants New Menu FeatureBy: Chris Crum - May 23, 2014
The web is getting better for restaurants this year. Facebook just announced a new feature that will help restaurants show off their menus to users.
“When looking for a great meal, people often turn to Facebook to find a restaurant’s location, hours of operation and menu,” the company says on its business blog. “That’s why, beginning today, we’re making it easier for restaurants worldwide to display one of their most important assets directly on their Facebook Page — their menus.”
Restaurant pages in the U.S. and Canada upload menus through SinglePlatform from Constant Contact. Businesses who already work with SinglePlatform for menus will see their menus automatically added to their Pages.
Those outside the U.S. and Canada, and those that don’t work with SinglePlatform can upload a PDF of their menu. You can do this by going to settings, and then Page Info and Menus.
Earlier this year, Google released a new menu feature, showing card-style menu results on results pages for restaurants. Earlier this month, the company acquired Appetas, a service that lets restaurants showcase their menus across devices.
Also this month, Yelp launched a new reservation tool for restaurants.
