Menu Management

Overview

FoodBucket offers complete control of the menu. You can add categories, menu items, options, etc. What makes us unique is we give you the ability to interlink menus and you can create unlimited levels or depths of any menu. No matter how complex or how detailed the menu customization you need, our system handles it pretty well and allows your managers to punch an accurate order, swiftly and clearly.
We have designed this menu not only to serve restaurants that offer pretty basic meals but also for those who want to offer their customers to decide on each and every item. From Mcdonald's to Subway, we can handle them both.
