One key component of the
 Menuvision
toolbox is the Dessert Menu Optimizer, an online guideto help operators determine the right dessert assortment for their restaurants. Developed incollaboration with trusted industry partner Datassential, the Dessert Menu Optimizer usesinformation provided by operators, such as their restaurant’s dessert sales and menu composition,to calculate a menu’s “Appeal Level” – a ranking determined by the percentage of patrons likelyto find a dessert they will love on the menu. The metrics for Appeal Level ratings are based on asurvey of more than 2,000 consumers nationwide. After calculating a dessert menu’s AppealLevel, the Dessert Menu Optimizer will then suggest options to raise the menu’s score byshifting the mix of dessert offerings.“Something as easy as adding a cheesecake or key lime pie can greatly enhance a menu’s AppealLevel and, ultimately, the restaurant’s profits,” said Katzman. “The Dessert Menu Optimizeruses a wealth of data to provide simple solutions for operators to ensure they are getting the mostout of their dessert menus.”
