Everyone is talking about big data and analytics. Foodservice is no different, but there is still a question of access. Whether you’re a food writer, magazine editor, culinary student or restaurant researcher, we want you to gain insight from this data.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 07, 2015
Food Genius, the leading foodservice data provider specializing in gathering, preparing, and serving granular foodservice menu data and analytics, has announced via blog post that they will be providing complimentary access to their proprietary menu analytics dashboard Dash, to select groups and organizations within the foodservice industry. In an effort to lower the barrier of entry for these groups to interact with and manipulate valuable data about menus, ingredients, dishes and terms, Food Genius is happy to make this web-based self-serve application widely accessible. Starting immediately, any culinary student, hospitality student, industry press, state restaurant associations, or industry researcher will be able to access the Food Genius Dash for a period of six months, completely free of charge. This move stems from the Food Genius belief that data should be democratized, and they are intent on leading that shift for the food industry. Opening up access to the data provides people with the freedom to interpret the data, and pushes everyone to become more data literate.
“Our goal with this offer is to give these groups more information and tools to be able to raise the level of conversation about data. Everyone is talking about big data and analytics. Foodservice is no different, but there is still a question of access. Whether you’re a food writer, magazine editor, culinary student or restaurant researcher, we want you to gain insight from this data, not worry about where you can access data,” says Eli Rosenberg, VP of Marketing.
The menu analytics dashboard features the largest database of menus available in the industry, including over 93,000 unique menus, covering more than 365,000 locations, and provides an intuitive user experience to slice and filter data to fit a user’s specific area of focus. Users can filter data by segment, cuisine, and geography, among others. Once a user hones in on a concept and filter set, they can dig into the various analytic modules to uncover insights and data. One of the modules within the dashboard allows users to discover the average price of dishes or ingredient combinations across the country or within specific states. Another module offers insight into the most popular terms or ingredients paired with dishes, by segment or restaurant type. Other modules focus on geographic distribution, trends over the past year, cross-tabulation of distribution data, and even a full menu item description search tool. Data, from charts, tables, graphs and maps, can easily be exported for further manipulation or use in presentations or articles. Users can save unlimited concepts and store them for later use.
