Bridge the Gap from Culinary Development to Culinary Marketing

Trying to find a fresh and innovative culinary product to sell is tough. You’re trying to stay ahead of the curve while still finding something that the masses will love but haven’t discovered already. If that isn’t enough to balance, it also has to be something your chefs or product developers can actually make. Wouldn’t it be easier if there was a tool to bridge the gap from culinary development to culinary marketing? Something to add credibility to your suggestions, making it easy to communicate with everyone from executive leadership to executive chefs?

This tool does exist, and it’s called Menu Innovator. This menu analysis system provides unbiased culinary data to innovate new food strategies, setting the stage for widespread and sustainable product success. Menu Innovator was founded by Chef Tony Lagana following over 40 years of culinary experience and product placements in the top 10 grocery chains and top 100 restaurants in the country. He knows how difficult it can be to get marketing professionals, product developers, chefs, and executive leadership all on the same page. So, he created a solution.

We had become stagnant in our product development effort, and our idea-generating process was not generating any new ideas. That's when we found Tony and his team. We currently have several products in advanced development that are a direct result of [Menu Innovator]’s involvement. I know we will be working with Tony and his team in the future.
