Recommendations are an interesting way to expand your customer’s order and to increase the turnover in your restaurant. The UpMenu allows you to offer customers additional items from your menu, e.g. starters, additions to dishes, drinks, etc. or recommending sets or more expensive items.

Recommend menu items before finishing order

Suggest clients extend their orders with more products, e.g. drinks or modifiers, to diversify the order and increase the sale of additional items from the menu.

  1. Go to “Menu” → “Edit details” next to the selected product → “Advanced settings”.
  2. Go to “Recommend menu item” → “Recommend before finishing order”. Save.
  3. Your customers will see the selected products as a recommendation to add before proceeding to the order summary.
  4. Using this setting, you can also recommend products not visible directly in the menu, e.g. modifiers, the customer will see them only before ordering. This option applies only to orders placed via the website.

Recommend menu items after entering the menu

Use the pop-up function if you want to effectively attract the attention of your customers to the specific items, e.g. today’s special. After entering your website customers will receive a proposal to order selected products.

  1. Go to “Menu” → “Edit details” next to the selected product → “Advanced settings”.
  2. Go to “Recommend menu item” → “Recommend on visiting the menu”. Save.
  3. Your customers will see selected products in the pop-up window when they visit the menu on your site.

Recommend menu items in a separate section

Use the “recommend on the menu” function to present selected items in the new category. In this way, you can encourage customers to take advantage of e.g. weekend offers or weekly dishes.

  1. Go to “Menu” → “Edit details” next to the selected product → “Advanced settings”.
  2. Go to “Recommend menu item” → “Recommend on the menu”. Save.
  3. Your customers will see selected products in the “Recommended” category displayed first in the menu on your site.
