    Hi Flying Solo community!

    I have recently started a business/side hustle editing restaurant menus.
    I know there are simple internet tools to fix bad grammar but many restaurants don’t seem to use them. Personally, I find it quite irritating reading through a menu littered with spelling and grammatical errors.

    Two questions:
    What do you think would be a reasonable price to charge for a full review of a menu + edits if required?
    Other than cold calling, is there a good way to find new clients?

    Thanks everyone!

    Hi and welcome to the Flying Solo Forums GGAUS.

    I would start my research amongst hospitality consultants or groups on Linkedin of FB Groups.

    Good luck.

    My fav local restau features “dumping and chill” .. actually delicious 🙂

    I do notice a few restaurants have a website yet no menu, some have a lot of extra work cleaning plastic menus and maybe a paper form for check in [ covid safety ] .. it seems there ought to be a better way.

    Ive been building https://tiyuti.com for a while, which is a way to quickly get restaurants a menu on smartphone :

    – customer walks in [or past the window], scans QR code
    – restaurant menu pops up, scrollable with lots of food pics
    – they tap and add items to their order, pay the shop / dine etc

    Feel free to pop us an email if there is a way to complement our offerings

    gord at tiyuti dot com

    ps. great to be able to dine in restaurants again .. after all the lockdown, and much appreciated.

    Hi Gordon,

    Yours is an interesting idea.

    In my hands, I would take a slightly different approach based around awareness.

    The QR code would be on the window, just the same but then the site would be limited to the menu, pictures of the food and reviews of the restaurant and the food.

    Perhaps with an order from home function down the track.
