Every restaurant/cafeteria owner has to deal with so-called Menu Engineering, which in layman terms is the study of the profitability and popularity of menu items and how these two elements influence the placement of these items on a menu. The concept of menu is rooted in work performed in 1970 by the Boston Consulting Group to help businesses segment their products in a way that supports analysis and decision making. The goal is straightforwardly to increase the profit margin per customer. A restaurant that takes a proper initial approach with menu-engineering would on a rough basis see a 10-15 percent increase in profit on a continuous basis. Menu-Engineering consist of 4 core steps shown below:
In this used case we at Singulair Solutions try to enhance the Menu-Engineering with the 21st century tools, i.e. putting it into a Data-Driven framework combined with tools from Machine Learning (Deep neural networks and Agent-based Learning). In this way we’ll make the approach self-learning and is always looking for optimal answer for the menu items under constantly varying (business) conditions, which takes the burden away from the restaurant manager, who on her/his turn could focus more on other areas of the business.
As a Restaurant or cafeteria keeper, you need to solve each business day the following core problems:
And the above core issues need to be solved under certain constraints, which are more or less entwined
The two latter bullet points contribute to a green and healthy image towards the customers. Summarized the steps that we take in the enhancement of Menu-Engineering can be done in the following six steps and has a lot to do with so-called optimal resources allocation.
Singulair Solutions is working on a digital solutions that enables a more and efficient and transparent flower supply chain, combining Supply Chain analytics, IoT and Big Data Analytics
