Here’s a link to an Excel model I put together to assist with the Menu Engineering process.

The model includes all the formulas to automatically classify your menu items based on popularity & profitability and is easy to use and extend (assuming basic Excel skills).

Please leave a comment if you found it useful.

    Plough Horse, I want to understand your note here in the excel sheet. Do you see this as a positive item, negative item. Keep it on the menu or take it off. Tell me your definition to Plough Horse as used here. Thanks.

    Looking forward to more post….
