3 years ago, S’macks Burgers and Shakes blessed Sarasota, FL by spinning off from the other family business, Gecko’s Grill and Pub, introducing the Better Burger concept and serving up its frozen custard and shakes, and award winning fries. They are great neighbors in their community featuring local vendors and serving hormone free food as well as providing more vegetarian options than just the frozen custard (even though it’s pretty great)! Besides the ease of use for pricing changes and feature items, S’macks has also enjoyed social media integration on their menu for almost a year now. Look for their new location popping up in downtown Sarasota in 2017!

Cool Moose has been proudly serving customers since the summer of 1998. Located in the Riverside area of Jacksonville, FL, they serve breakfast and lunch daily. With the wide variety of coffee flavors and the cozy atmosphere, you might find customers reading and snacking on a pastry while enjoying a mug of their favorite coffee. “Menuat has given us the opportunity to make on the fly changes to our menuboard,” says Laurie Jarvis.

With digital menu boards being so technologically advanced, almost anything is possible. Social Media Integration is at the top of that list.
Many businesses are finding that having multiple platforms of social media and keeping those accounts up to date is becoming more and more important. Not only is it an effective way to advertise and connect with current customers, outsiders also turn to these platforms to view how these businesses interact with their customers. They want to see customer reviews and comments, also how quickly and well the business reacts to these interactions. Digital SignageToday states that 84% of people using social media trust peer content over brand content. Here at Menuat, we offer social media integration to your menu.
Pros to social media integration:
- Staying up-to-date with technology
- Increase brand awareness
- Having great customer comments displayed right on your menu!

Starting 20 years ago on the Anna Maria City Pier, Anna Maria Oyster Bar has won the hearts of many. Since then the “We’re More Than Just Oysters” restaurant has popped up in 3 other locations in Bradenton and Ellenton, FL. There are 3 table service restaurants and you will find our digital menuboard in their fast casual location. Having been one of our customers for 8 months now, they love being able to change the menu due to product inventory at the drop of a hat. While they are a seafood restaurant, they offer land lover favorites as well. Stop in the next time you’re by the pier!
One of our greatest achievements as a technology company was partnering with Samsung. There are 15 other Samsung SMART Signage platform partners in the nation and Samsung features us as one of the best designs of digital menuboards. This partnership allows us to work with the Samsung development platform to improve software and gives us access to the newest features immediately.
Our customers have the opportunity to use these SMART TVs and benefit from the features they offer. These slim and elegant devices present durable, commercial grade usage, and crystal clear image quality 24/7. Also, they already have a built in media player so we won’t have to send you extra hardware!
We love being partnered with Samsung! (Just look how excited our CEO, Jeff, is!)
