Dallas -- Davaco said Tuesday it is preparing to roll out high-volume retrofits of interior and exterior restaurant menu boards in response to the FDA’s new nutrition/menu labeling program.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 requires restaurants and similar retail food establishments with 20 or more locations to list calorie content information for standard menu items on restaurant menus and menu boards.
“While the FDA is still finalizing implementation provisions, many restaurants are proactively integrating nutrition information on their menu boards and throughout their restaurants,” said Rick Davis, CEO, Davaco. “Our nationwide structure allows our team to make changes in locations across the country quickly and our restaurant expertise gives us the ability to execute changes consistently, accurately and with minimal disruption to the restaurant and its customers.”
The company’s ClearThread technology is designed to allow restaurants to oversee the progress of their menu board implementation, by offering 24-hour access to project information via a secure online website. Davaco’s field team provides regular updates, survey results, before/after photography, schedules and contacts, for each restaurant location.
