FoodCalc's MenuCalc Compeat Partner For Nutrition Analysis


New Compeat and FoodCalc Partnership to Provide Restaurant Operators with Comprehensive Back Office Management and Nutritional Analysis Software Solutions.


Austin, Texas, June 26th, 2009 – Compeat Restaurant Management Systems and FoodCalc have partnered to deliver a comprehensive back office management and nutritional analysis solution to restaurant operators. The combination of Compeat’s back office management software and FoodCalc’s nutrition analysis software provide restaurant operators with web based solutions that manage their entire inventory, recipes, and menu offerings.

"Our clients are facing a growing demand for nutritional analysis," says Dave Douglas, Vice President of Business Development for Compeat. "Even though software providers like Compeat create recipe files for our customers for food costing analysis, proper nutritional analysis requires more expertise and more ingredient information than can typically be provided without creating a partnership like we have with FoodCalc. Our existing and future customers will not only get great inventory control and food cost analysis, but now they can also receive state of the art nutritional analysis from experts in this field."

"It is common knowledge that today's restaurant diners are increasingly demanding nutritional information in order to make informed, wholesome choices," said Lucy Needham, President and CEO, FoodCalc. "And offering this data is one way for far-sighted restaurants to distinguish themselves from their competitors and build lasting customer loyalty. With MenuCalc, we've successfully eliminated the high costs and complexities traditionally associated with menu labeling to create a practical and efficient online solution. Many of Compeat’s restaurant operator customers are ideal candidates for FoodCalc."
