Q Is it off putting for customers to see the number of calories on my menu?
A We used to get asked this question all the time, but once restaurants understand the benefits of putting the number of calories beside each dish, the customer feels they have more choice and feel that they are making the right decision with more knowledge being displayed. We have also found that restaurants are selling more. A customer who is on a diet does not think they can eat a starter and a main, but when the calories are displayed, they can see that a starter with say 100 calories and a main with 500 calories are alright to eat
Q How do I show the number of calories on my menu?
A You can either print the number of calories next to the appropriate dish or you can use our QR code

Q How can I make sure that my waiters/waitress know if a particular dish on the menu is suitable for a Coeliac?
