We provide a list of items that gives exact amounts of foods needed for the week, adjusted for the
recipes chosen and production amount put in for each recipe. This allows for an easier and more
efficient ordering process.
Price List/UPC Codes
Food Item Codes (SUPC or UPC) can be uploaded with your price list which transfers to your ordering list
allowing you to control the product and consequently the price.
The program gives an estimated cost per serving for each recipe, and then gives an estimated total for
each meal and each day, helping you stay within your food budget.
Once menu choices are determined, simply click a button and a clean menu prints out showing your
daily or weekly selections. Send us your logo and it will show on the menus.
The recipes scale to your resident count or number of desired servings so you know exactly how much

We are very picky about the recipes we use because the success of your menu begins with a good
recipe. Many of our users send us tried and true recipes that their residents love so our database keeps
growing. Our database has been through numerous refinements as we track how well recipes do in

Editing the Menu
You know your residents and regional preferences better than we do. That is why we give you the ability
