OpenMenu™ is Changing the Restaurant Industry by Standardizing Online Restaurant Menus and How the Information is Stored and Shared

Share Article

OpenMenu™ has developed the first standard for online restaurant menus. It provides a way to regulate the storing, sharing, and distribution of a restaurant’s information and menu across the web. OpenMenu creates a system where one menu, in one location, controls how the information is shared, searched, and used, thus paving the way for accurate menu information on all restaurant-based solutions. Add your specials at 8:00am and by 9:00am the information is already on your favorite restaurant-based website, mobile site, or mobile application.

To truly move the restaurant industry forward, as it relates to the internet and mobile solutions, a standard is needed.

Have you ever had a craving for fried calamari, pasta carbonara, or molten lava cake, and tried to search for a restaurant in your area that serves it? It was probably not that easy. That’s because there is no standard for the way restaurants share their menus across the internet. OpenMenu™ solves that issue by eliminating the use of clunky Flash menus, slow-loading PDFs, and fuzzy scanned images, all of which make getting accurate menu information difficult, if not impossible.

The OpenMenu™ Format, or standard, sets the foundation for an open system of regulating and distributing menus across the internet. Chris Hanscom, founder, states, “To truly move the restaurant industry forward, as it relates to the internet and mobile solutions, a standard is needed. Now, restaurants only have to update their information and menu once, and that information is disseminated internet-wide.”

No longer does a restaurant have to worry about updating its information in the dozens or hundreds of locations where it resides. Restaurants maintain their menu through an OpenMenu™ Registrar in a single, online location. This menu is then officially registered with OpenMenu™ and distributed to anyone providing a restaurant-based solution – a totally open system for the benefit of the restaurant.

No more out-of-date menus and restaurant information. Update a menu in one location, and it’s updated everywhere downstream.
