Restaurant guidelines and customer needs are continuing to evolve, sometimes daily. It’s more important than ever for restaurant operators to adapt on the fly and Shamrock Foods has five powerful tools than can help you succeed in 2021.

1. Menu Engineering

Now more than ever, every dish must be optimized with portion control and costing. This includes the cost of time needed for your experts to modify menus based on the market environment. Menu Wizard by Shamrock Foods takes care of this, building and costing menus in real time.

You can also eliminate the design costs associated with changing menus by using Menu Studio.  The tool allows you to design your menu and design again as needed. It’s perfect for limited-time pick-up/delivery only menu options, special holiday menus and testing on-trend or seasonal menus.

2. Online Ordering System

If you haven’t already made the switch to an online ordering system, it’s not too late. Shamrock Foods partner, Gloria Food, is offering a free online product for restaurant customers to order and pay online. Even better it works hand-in-hand with social media to get your built, costed and designed menu online and eliminates the need for costly printed to-go menus.

Plus, this is the safest way to order and pay, providing enhanced convenience and powerful tracking to better manage your costs and maximize profits.

3. Digital Marketing

This powerful tool is available at a preferred price for Shamrock customers. You can utilize the services of 240 Group to make your menu available for mobile and online ordering and to help promote your professional website.
