Denny’s, the Spartanburg-based casual restaurant chain, has introduced an Augmented Reality menu that allows customers to experience a vibrant visual tour with each turn of the page. Denny's menu update comes as part of the newly introduced "It's Diner Time" platform, which is focused on delivering greater dinner comfort.

Starting March 15, customers will be able to experience a new AR menu that brings the brand to life and allows them to enjoy a lively dining experience. The new AR menu also comes with a multitude of opportunities, including exclusive dishes, deals, the chain's 70-year history, and much more. Fans of the casual chain will be able to access it all by simply scanning the new menu.

The casual restaurant chain introduced the new dining experience through a press release, with John Dillon, Denny’s president, quoting:

"For 70 years, Denny's has been that consistent place that feels like home, one where our guests can be their authentic selves and celebrate moments that matter."

Briefing fans about the new menu experience, Dillon further added:

"Our new menu feels like an extension of our dinners and no matter what page consumers land on, it's clear that it will always be Diner Time."
