Menu Designer Download PDF

Before taking orders in Rezku POS, you need to create the menu for your restaurant.

NOTE: A POS menu is more than just a list of items like a paper menu. The goal of good menu design is to create an efficient workflow for servers ringing up customers and reduce errors when sent to the kitchen.

Rezku POS is very flexible and allows you to organize your menu in a way that works for you.

An organized menu makes ordering fast and easy, so planning ahead is advised.

The friendly Rezku support team is happy to help build your menu with you!

“Categories” in the Daily Report and Date Range report are reflective of the top-level menus displayed when you begin a new order. In addition to the top-level categories, you will add sub-menus to help organize products within a menu.

Create Your Menu

  • In Rezku POS Back Office, click the link on the left side that says menu

buttons for adding a new menu item in rezku pos backoffice

+ Product - Add a specific food item, such as “Fries” to this level in the menu.

+ Menu - Add a submenu to create a more specific product category, such as “Burger Menu”. Submenus help you stay organized and help servers find the products they need quickly.

+ Bundle - A bundle is a group of menu items that are sold together as one item. Bundles can be used to help organize items that are purchased together to save time when organizing.

+ Bulk - A bulk item is a product sold by weight. To sell products by weight you must use a compatible scale. We recommend the Brecknell 6710U POS food scale.

Create a Submenu

  • Click + Menu
