The restaurant and foodservice industry is competitive and continuously evolving with the introduction of new ingredients, trends, and methods of creating and serving food to customers. As restaurant owners and industry leaders, you know firsthand how difficult it can be to keep up with these trends while being creative and trying to differentiate your menu’s offerings from the thousands of others out there. MenuSano is a solution that can help you solve this problem.

If you are creating dishes for specific dietary needs, or simply want to make a recipe healthier, MenuSano gives you the freedom to do so. Here are some ways it accomplishes this:

Recipe Experimentation

MenuSano software can help you do this efficiently and cost-effectively through our nutrition analysis and recipe experimentation options.

New Additions to Your Menu

With MenuSano, you can test out new ideas and recipes without the worry of extra cost. Recipes can also be organized into categories created by the user. You can continuously add new items to the menu, which will show your customers that you are keeping up with the latest trends and are making an effort to make your food and restaurant better and more geared towards customer needs.

MenuSano operates on this customer-centric mindset, and we believe that taking the time to use this software to its fullest capacity will not only help you retain customers but attract new ones as well.

Manage Calories in Established Products

Through MenuSano, you will be made aware of just how many calories are in your dishes because of our extensive database that allows for nutritional analysis. You can analyze your current, existing recipes, dishes and food products. You can also identify the ingredients that will make your dishes healthier through experimentation.

As you determine which substitutions you should include on your menu to make your dishes healthier, MenuSano will allow you to immediately see the nutritional benefits.

By using the MenuSano software, you will be able to see how these substitute ingredients are impacting the nutritional value of the dish. From there, you can determine whether or not the substitution is worth it.
