Menu Engineering: Maximize Profitability

Menu engineering is a strategic review of your menu to identify items that are both popular and profitable. We work with you to ensure that your entire menu is properly recipe’d and costed, leading to increased bottom-line profitability.

Benefits of Menu Engineering:


Maximize Menu Profit

Our approach typically increases your profit by 3-4% of sales, optimizing your offerings to maximize revenue and profitability.


Improve Guest Experience

Engineering your menu based on items with strong margins and guest appeal ensures that your guests enjoy high-quality dishes that also contribute to your bottom line.


Streamline Inventory

By focusing on menu items that perform well, we help your team streamline inventory management and reduce waste.

QuaM Graph: Visualize Your Menu's Impact

With our QuaM graph, you can visually understand how each menu item contributes to your profit over time. Items with high popularity and profitability, known as “Star” items, can be promoted more often, while underperforming items, or “Dogs,” can be reworked or adjusted to enhance profitability.
