Q&A: Radisson Edwardian on #QR codes and social media #qrchat #qrcode

Why place QR codes in menus ?

It was I Spy’s idea to take that experience offline and turn it into something useful for diners, as well as to appeal to people who haven’t been introduced to our social media channels.

It has been a useful tool for our waiters too, and they have been able to prompt people who chose the highlighted dish that they could see the video of it being prepared by our chefs.

We didn’t want to bombard every diner with it, though it was clearly promoted on the menu itself.

How well has it worked? Have many diners used it?
