FoodCALC® Announces New MenuCalc®, Design and Pricing Packages


San Francisco, California May 26th, 2010 - Web-based nutrition analysis solutions pioneer FoodCALC® has announced the upgrade of their revolutionary application, MenuCalc®, in conjunction with the release of a new low-cost pricing plan. Endorsed by the National Restaurant Association, MenuCalc is the leading resource for nutrition analysis services for restaurant operators and culinary professionals.

The changes to the MenuCalc interface were designed in response to feedback from FoodCALC’s growing clientele in the wake of an increased demand for efficient, affordable, FDA-compliant nutritional analysis. The application is now more user-friendly than ever, with time-saving features and a more intuitive, easy-to-navigate system. MenuCalc has successfully made nutrition analysis simple and economical for restaurants by utilizing sophisticated web-based technology and a growing database of 20,000-plus ingredients. New lower costs have effectively eliminated the need for expensive laboratories and complicated nutrition software.

MenuCalc’s new pricing now offers a variety of pay-as-you-go monthly plans, or the option of an annual subscription. Monthly pricing is based on the number of recipes needed per month.

"From listening to and understanding the needs of our clients, these changes reflect the feedback we have received as our business has grown,” said FoodCALC president and CEO Lucy Needham. FoodCALC clients can now choose between Standard, Premium, or Unlimited plans depending on their needs. “The introduction of these plans will allow all of our clients a more flexible MenuCalc experience that will adapt to the changing needs of their business."

Clients have already voiced praise for the new design. "The program works great. We are very pleased. It is very easy to navigate," said John Raulerson of Firehouse Subs.

While the new MenuCalc interface was designed to offer an intuitive and easy transition, FoodCALC will also be providing extended support to users should any questions arise. The company’s online demo center has been updated with new and improved video demos, and will be offering support via email, telephone and webinars as the process is completed.
