Unbiased Culinary Data to Innovate New Food Strategies

When you’re the one responsible for brainstorming new culinary products, the pressure is on – and it’s on high. It’s hard to come up with groundbreaking, lucrative product ideas on demand, especially when you’re dealing with high expectations from management, tight deadlines, and a lack of accurate trend-predicting data. You’re meant to be exceeding expectations while feeling uninspired, unfocused, and unprepared.

The good news is this: we’ve been there. Founder and Chef Tony Lagana has over 40 years of culinary experience and product placements in the top 10 grocery chains and top 100 restaurants in the country. He knows the pressures, expectations, and struggles to develop likable, lasting products. That’s why he developed Menu Innovator. This menu analysis system provides unbiased culinary data to innovate new food strategies, setting the stage for widespread and sustainable product success.

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.
