The Overwhelming Number of Places Where People Can Find Your Menu

Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Facebook, Yelp, Foursquare, OpenTable, YP, TripAdvisor… Hungry consumers are searching these websites for where to eat their next meal.

Is your restaurant’s menu there, along with all the dishes you offer, photos, prices and catering options?

People use those apps, review sites, and search engines to look for where to get their next meal (“best grilled cheese near me”), where to meet friends after work (“happy hour specials”), and catering options for office and holiday parties. When a customer is deciding where to dine, your menu is the most important information they need.

To help your business show up on top of menu and food searches online, you need to give consumers the information they’re looking for in the moment that matters: when they’re making a decision about where to eat next. That means having up-to-date menus on ALL the sites that people use to choose where to dine.

If you want to attract new customers and ensure they find the information they need, the first step is to get control of your menu on all of the sites listed above, known as “publishers.”

The problem is that these “publishers” are just the top of the pile. To verify business information, popular sites like Google also check other discovery websites, review sites and networks to see if their information matches all the information available about your business.

Because most business owners aren’t like you, trying to get control of their menu online, sites like Google have to pull information from other places, like review sites, outdated information from aggregators, and even customer suggestions.

There are hundreds of sites, apps, maps and networks online that host information about your business. It would take a Herculean effort and hundreds and hundreds of hours each year to claim and update every single one of them. That’s time that you could better use to actually run your business, organize payroll, manage employees, source better pricing from your vendors, or fix the sink that just started leaking…

The right software can help you get control of your menu online and publish it all over the internet. The right software makes it easy to update your information everywhere, whether you need to run a special holiday promotion, promote a new menu item, or change your entire menu.

SinglePlatform has a network of more than 100 publishers to whom we can send your updated, accurate menu every time you make a change. We’ll even do the work for you. All you have to do is send us a quick email with the changes and our customer service team will update all of your online menus, everywhere they live online.

HowUdish Kickstarts a New App to Help Diners

Diners are more aware of ingredients, preparation, and portions of food now than ever before. Some are health conscious because of the diet they choose, and some are restricted based on health constraints. Keto and Whole30 are currently popular diets that have created not only buzzwords, but a following of people looking to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Limitations like gluten and lactose intolerance have forced some to cut certain foods out of their diet altogether. This change in the landscape of food has had a significant impact on the food and restaurant industry as a whole.

As a restaurant owner, you’ve probably also had to adapt your menu to fit the needs of a diverse array of dietary restrictions. You may now offer vegan items or dishes made with less sodium. It’s important to be inclusive of all lifestyle choices and diet requirements, not only for the success of your business, but for the consideration of your patrons.

HowUdish, an app geared toward restaurant discovery, recognized the need for a tool to help individuals quickly find restaurants that are friendly to their diets. So, the company behind the idea created HowUdish for iOS to make it easier for diners to enjoy a meal away from home.

The truth is, it’s much more difficult to stick to a healthy diet plan or abide by health restrictions when you’re on the go. If you’re not cooking it, chances are you don’t know exactly how the food is being prepared. But, this uncertainty shouldn’t hold diners back from enjoying a dinner out with friends. And from this notion, HowUdish was born.

The app curates nearby restaurant offerings and dietary information in one place. Users can filter by dietary restrictions (so if, for example, they’re gluten-free, they can choose that setting) to see what options are available in their area. They’ll get nutritional information including calories, fat, carbs, protein levels, and more. Dining out without the guilt has never been easier.

Along with nutritional discovery, Dishers can keep track of diet progress in order to close the loop on their nutritional journey. They can track weight loss, interact with other Dishers, and even save meals they enjoyed to remember them for next time.

From a restaurant owner’s perspective, this app can be extremely useful for attracting more diners to your location. If you offer the options they’re looking for, you become easily discoverable on the HowUdish app. These users are looking for very specific menu items and ingredients, so if you can fulfill their needs, you have the chance of not only being discovered, but being talked about among app users. With the diverse dietary restrictions that are prevalent today, it’s important to showcase your offerings wherever possible.

When you take off your business owner hat, HowUdish may still be relevant to your personal life. If you stick to a strict diet or have an allergy or limitation, the app can help you find more menu choices when you’re dining out. HowUdish’s mission is to make the world a healthier place, but to do so, they need our help.

HowUdish has already been around for about 6 months, but they are looking to expand their business by launching a brand new app for Android. Currently, the app is only available to iOS users, which limits its reach. HowUdish hopes to expand its presence and help more people discover restaurants that suit their needs by being available on any type of operating system.

In order to make the Android app a reality, the company launched a Kickstarter campaign to help get the job done. And you can contribute! Follow this link to read more about HowUdish and consider making a pledge. There are some great perks, and opportunities for you to market your restaurant.

With HowUdish, hungry diners everywhere are finally able to find a place to eat, no matter what limitations they have.
