Menu Labeling Is In Effect

As of May 7th 2018, all forms of menus (electronic and printed versions) are required to have calorie counts disclosed next to each menu item, along with providing additional nutrition information to the Guest, upon request. Nutrition Made Simple is here to offer Simple Solutions for what could be a daunting task. Our proven multi check system focuses on the details. Starting with a thorough review of all menus, next we calculate values based up regulatory code, followed by menu proofing for accuracy. Finally, we will create an additional information document that meets regulatory requirements.


Does this apply to me?

  1. Are there 20 or more locations?
  2. That conducts business under the same name (regardless of the type of ownership)?
  3. Selling substantially the same menu items?

If you answered YES to all of these questions above then YES it applies to you

Is This Considered A Menu?

  1. Does it list the name or image of a standard menu item?
  2. Can it be used by the customer to make an order selection at the time the customer views it?

If you answered YES to both of the questions above then YES it is a menu
