Menu Planning Resources
The menu controls the heart and soul of a tuckshop operation… the food.
When planning a menu it’s important to consider the capacity for making food on site, the nutritional needs of students, supply availability, dietary requirements, and how appealing the menu will be to the school community, which will determine how you market it.
Costing is also crucial as it will determine the success of your financial goals.
Menu planning can be a daunting process for convenors, especially if you’re new to working in a tuckshop.
Our menu planning resources cover topics like how to create an efficient menu, portion control, managing workflow, marketing options, service styles, meeting dietary requirements, and how to plan in line with the Smart Choices strategy.
