today announced that its "Kitchen Calls The Shots" menu management platform is catching on, surpassing the 15,000 restaurant mark. MustHaveMenus makes it easy for restaurateurs to create and update beautiful menus on and offline which increases the accuracy of local search results. Menus are sales and marketing engines for restaurants, whetting appetites, communicating uniqueness, and building loyalty. Prior to MustHaveMenus, restaurateurs needed a costly and time-consuming process to coordinate the different steps of designing, printing and publishing their updated menus. In addition, restaurants have had to cope with technology companies crawling the Web, finding and presenting wrong and outdated menu data. MustHaveMenus makes it easy for restaurateurs large and small to take control of their brands and food items online as part of their ordinary in-house menu creation process.
"At MustHaveMenus, our customers send menus to the Internet straight from the kitchen, ensuring the most up-to-date menus and specials possible, while keeping the voice and brand that makes them unique," stated
, CEO of MustHaveMenus. "By building strong customer relationships within the
$600 billion dollar
restaurant market, we intend to make local search the just-in-time experience it was meant to be for restaurant patrons. We are convinced that the restaurants need to call the shots, not the crawlers and bots with their data scraping techniques."
MustHaveMenus Customers Are Very Hands On
The value of tying the online menu to the tabletop menu has been striking for MustHaveMenus, as its restaurant customers average more than 23 site visits per month, totaling almost 400,000 visits per month. This ensures that menus published to Facebook, restaurant websites and other online locations are absolutely up to date when they come from MustHaveMenus. Busy restaurant owners and staff not only save time and money making their frequent updates from the all-in-one platform, they also rave about the beautiful designs that MustHaveMenus offers.
"Tapenade is a French restaurant where the timeless classic bistro dishes stand alongside the newest culinary seasonal creations; it is a challenging menu duality," says Jean-Michel Diot Owner and Award Winning Chef at Tapenade Restaurant and Fine Catering. "It is very important that all of our various menus match our atmosphere and properly display our unique and seasonal dishes. MustHaveMenus has made the design and updating process simple and easy. We have been very pleased using MustHaveMenus for the last 18 months to update our lunch, bistro, dinner and wine lists every 2-3 weeks for print, online and for Facebook. Their customer service has been magnifique."
