Though Boomers aren’t reliant on technology like the Millennials, Gen Z, and to some degree Gen X, Boomers aren’t afraid of it, either. Touch screen ordering and easy to read digital menu screens will make almost as big of an impact with the Boomers as with the younger generations. While Gen Z and the Millennials look to the technology to access nutritional information and increase speed of service, Boomers simply ‘get a kick’ out of trying a new app or pre-ordering online. Across the generational spectrum, one thing is certain: all menus and website information must be mobile friendly and up to date with accurate information. Another unspoken requirement is reliable, easily accessed Wi-Fi, especially for Gen Z and the Millennials.
