Dietary preferences are diverse, and acknowledging them can significantly enhance your menu's appeal. Categorize and highlight vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, or other diet-specific options. By doing so, you not only cater to a broader audience but also showcase your commitment to inclusivity and customer satisfaction.

  • Mr. Tomato teaches your staff exactly what ingredients are in each menu item, allowing your staff to effectively communicate dietary preferences to customers.
