The Menu Fuse is located in the Inventory Hub, and it allows users to view menu items, recipes, and evaluate how they have changed over time.
Once recipes have been created from your menu items you can go to the Menu Fuse and view analytics for each item on your menu.
Dashboard -> Inventory Hub -> Menu Fuse
The Last 30 Days box shows information for your top menu items that you have recipes for. The Sales tab shows your total sales, the Quantity tab shows the quantity sold, and the Profit tab shows your profit gained form each menu item, calculated by subtracting your food costs from your sales for that item.
Below the Last 30 Days box are your menu categories. These are the same categories shown under the Sales Tab on the Dashboard. Each category can be expanded to see the menu items within that category. You can easily see which menu items have recipes by the food cost percentages shown on the right side of the chart. If the food cost is less than 35% of the sale price of the menu item then the bar will appear green. Once the food cost percentage exceeds 35% the bar will turn yellow, and if the food cost percentage exceeds 40% the bar will turn red.
Each menu item with a recipe can also be expanded to see further analytics. Under the recipes tab you can see a breakdown of the ingredients and how much the item currently costs to produce, as well as a graph showing the history of the total cost for that menu item, and if you select items below the graph you can view the history of the cost for each ingredient for that menu item.
The pricing tab shows how the food cost percentage is calculated, along with price settings.
The Stats tab shows further statistics for the menu item, including graphs for the quantity sold and sales information at each price for the last 30 days. Below the graphs are charts showing information for yesterday, the last 15 days, and the last 30 days.
