The Quintessential Guide To Creating A Successful Restaurant MenuPR Newswire, Albuquerque, NM, September 15, 2015
Lavu, Inc., creators of the leading restaurant point of sale system (POS), are giving away a free resource to restaurant owners. The downloadable guide reveals numerous opportunities that restaurant owners have to increase profits by making small tweaks to their menu.
“Restaurant owners without profit-driven menus are missing out on a huge opportunity,” said Lavu CEO Andy Lim. “Our guide allows you to optimize your menu by removing the guesswork.”
Menu-engineering, the term used to describe the process of creating a profit-oriented menu, has been growing in popularity since the market crash of 2008. The restaurant industry was hit extremely hard, and owners have been searching for ways to make their operations more efficient. Studies tracking the habits and preference of patrons have proven invaluable to restaurant owners. By knowing where on a menu page a customer will look first - the top right- high profit menu items can be strategically placed to increase the odds that they’ll be ordered.
Additional information from the guide that can be used to influence a customer’s decision:
- The length, size and layout of a menu.
- A menu’s color scheme.
- Typology and typography.
- The strategic use of punctuation and symbols such as decimals and dollar signs.
“Many restaurant owners’ lives are being run by their business, when it should be the other way around,” said Lim. “We’re here to make owning and operating a restaurant simpler and more profitable.”
