What is the ideal size of a pizza menu?
« on: November 30, 2022, 05:22:45 AM »
Hi everyone!
I am currently doing research on restaurant operation optimization.

Do you think the size of a restaurant menu matters?

This is a survey about Pizza menus, it will only take a minute to finish.
And the result of this research will help smaller local businesses to become more profitable.

Thank you very much!

Thereís a good Kitchen Nightmares episode covering this topic. The British version, not the obnoxious American version.

A Jamaican chef had 8+ pages on her menu, nothing was good. A lot of stuff went bad, not much done fresh.

After the transformation, her menu was 1 page with a handful of items that she specialized in making fantastic. I tend to avoid restaurants when their menu is more than 2 pages because itís guaranteed to be frozen. At best, you get average food, master of none.

For my own menu, Iím doing 1 page. 2 appetizers, 3 pizzas including an additional seasonal pizza. So a total of 6 dishes.

I think in the end, the ideal size depends on a lot of factors. What are you comfortable with? What size kitchen? How many seats? Quick serve or sit down? I have 20 specialties, but a lot share ingredients. My menu looks big but is written for our flow. I can put orders out fast with minimal help.
