Do you know what table tents are? Good try, but no, this is not it.

Table tents are those props used on a guest tables to display the menu, show today’s special, and throw up any other advertisement to entice you.  They are very low cost and fairly good marketing tool.

I know very low tech, but fairly effective. How about those electronic tags that beep and flash to notify you that your table is ready, much more today’s technology? Those are actually losing a bit of popularity with restaurants. The main problem, guess how many of those electronic tags a restaurant will lose in a week? Not surprising that some are returning to the low cost, tried and true, table tents.
