WHAT IS MENU ENGINEERING?

Menu engineering is the analysis of the popularity and profitability of a menu and the items on it. When creating a new menu, the goal is simple: to increase profitability per patron.

You may already have a target food cost in your restaurant, but not every menu item will have the same cost percentage. For this reason, it is very important to balance your menu so that the low and higher cost items work together seamlessly to help you reach your target overall food cost. This is called menu engineering.

CREATING A MENU TO ACHIEVE TARGETS

At the end of the day, you want to sell menu items that have a high profit margin.

When reviewing a menu, we take many important factors into account. These include the potential profitability, as well as the current popularity of an item. To determine the possible profitability of a dish, it is important to have a good understanding of the cost of producing that dish. We are experts at the analyzing, creating and costing of world-class menus.
