MenuPro Tour

Below are the 4 main steps to creating a menu with MenuPro:

Add your food, drinks, & menu headings into MenuPro

 MenuPro Food Item

  • First you enter your food and drink items into a master food list. This only needs to be done one time - once in the list they'll always be accessible.

  • Then add your menu headings such as 'Appetizers', 'Today's Specials' or 'served with a salad' - these will be specific to each menu you make and can be whatever you want with no limit of how many you want.

Drag and Drop your foods and headings to your menu

 MenuPro Drag and Drop

  • Once dropped on your menu, MenuPro does all of the formatting, indenting, spacing, price alignment, font selection - even colors - automatically.

  • You can drag them around on your menu to change their order or remove unwanted items - MenuPro will retain the formatting so that everything lines up perfectly.

Pick a Menu Style

 MenuPro Menu Styles

  • Choose a design from over 150 styles. MenuPro will then format your entire menu based on your chosen Menu Style. You can later change styles at any time without re-typing.

  • Plus you can customize any Menu Style to suit your needs - change fonts, colors, borders, graphic art, or add your own logos - all with just a few clicks.

Print your Menu or create a PDF

 MenuPro Print Options

  • All that's left is to print your menu or create a full color PDF version which can be uploaded to your website or emailed to customers and clients.

  • When you're ready to make a change to your menu, such as changing a price or adding or removing a menu item, simply edit your menu and then re-print.
