Setting up a menu for the first time should take about an hour, but afterwards, updates take just a few minutes. You can save the draft at any time and come back to your work.
Create a menu
- First, log into the Yumpingo Dashboard.
- Go into the menu management section under Settings on the left side tab options on the dashboard.
- Once there, it will open to a new page for menu management.
- Navigate to the Menus section on the left side.
- Click the pink dots on the top left of the screen to see a drop-down menu.
- Click + Add menu and a pop-up will appear. You'll be able to give your menu a name and choose a service style and a description.
Next, you'll want to name the sections of your menu. Sections refer to the different parts of your menu and are totally customizable to your brand's menu. This could be as simple as Starters, Mains, and Desserts or could be as complex as you like.
Tip: For the best experience for your guests, we strongly recommend using the same sections as your restaurant's menu(s).
Once you've added sections, you're ready to add individual items to your menu. To do this, go here to learn how to set up menu items.
