Today, Villa Restaurant Group is an international organization with nearly 300 restaurants in malls, airports, casinos and other high-traffic locations.
When LaGuardia Airport was planning their extensive revitalization plan, VRG was awarded the opportunity to create an impressive representation of New York culture and pride in the airport’s food court. VRG was selected due to their ability to deliver new and innovative restaurant brands that reflect the best in local NYC dining options transformed into a contemporary food hall experience.

VRG selected LSI because of our well-established business relationship and trusted, proven ability to provide value across all facets of the project.
LSI used its internal team of specialists to deploy
a comprehensive digital menu solution at six VRG restaurants at LaGuardia Airport. The program included consultative services, hardware and software, installation and commissioning, content creation and management, training and ongoing support.
This turnkey solution enhances VRG’s ability to steer customer attention to higher margin menu items. It also allows them to refresh menu content and pricing more quickly and easily as compared to traditional printed materials. Importantly, LSI’s experts help VRG avoid complicated menu designs that can confuse customers by creating visual chaos.
As an innovative company, VRG is using LSI’s digital menu solution to enhance the overall customer experience. We see this on the tech front every day where the user experience, or UX, is at the forefront of value. It’s no different in QSR, and that is a key reason why VRG deployed LSI’s digital solution – to meet the needs of their customers and, as a result, their businesses.
LSI’s digital menu solution also help VRG create a very engaging, high-interest sales environment. It’s an effective soft-sell communication platform that enhances VRG’s marketing efforts in support their business operations and growth initiatives.
We were delighted to work with LSI. Their digital menus help make our LaGuardia Airport restaurants a destination all by themselves.

Following the installation of LSI’s digital menu solution, VRG was able to enhance the customer experience with vibrant content, increase marketing efficiencies and draw additional attention to higher margin items.
The solution also created cost savings by decreasing the use of printed marketing items.
As a result, the need to maintain an inventory of printed materials was reduced, minimizing the waste associated with disposing unused or outdated menus, signs, posters and other printed items.
