Restaurant Menu Data

At Food Genius, restaurant menu data is serious business. We spend a great deal of time determining what drives consumer decisions in restaurants. We have discovered that many decisions can be traced right back to the restaurant menu. A restaurant menu is a collection of data points, and as technology advances, so does the ability to capture this data. Restaurants distribute menus across the country with just a few clicks and changes can happen in seconds.

With Food Genius Reports, clients leverage our platform - data and visualizations of that data - to gain a quick and comprehensive understanding of what flavors and flavor combinations are available and trending on menus. This restaurant menu data enable our clients to stay ahead of the curve in identifying emerging trends. The insights gathered from our platform can then be used to impact the creation and marketing of new products.

The big data revolution is just beginning with 90% of the world’s digital data produced in just the past two years. For operators, distributors, manufacturers and foodservice companies data is the backbone that drives innovation and growth. For restaurants, the menu is arguably the single largest source of information to inform purchase decisions. The menu informs customers of what products are offered, entices them to purchase or purchase more, and provokes conversations. As restaurants evolve their strategies to keep up with constant change in consumer tastes and demands, we are confident that Food Genius Reports will have a dramatic impact on how the food industry utilizes, analyzes and profits from data.
