In the hospitality industry where efficiency and customer satisfaction are essential, the Dutch initiative Menukiezen.nl (MenuChoice) offers a tool for streamlining group menus. Their solution supports restaurants, cafés and caterers in meeting the varying expectations of large groups of guests. Restaurant supply the link with the guest so they can share it with the group of people they invited. For example, a number of restaurants now have 3 to 4 fixed menus in the system.
