What is Menu Management?
Menu Management is an Otter feature that allows you to view, edit and publish menus from Otter’s Business Manager tool. With Menu Management you can:
- View your menu options and make adjustments.
- Choose available items from your brand menu as new offerings.
- Easily print your menu with pictures and descriptions.
- Set your open times and holiday hours.
- Add or remove selected modifiers as availability changes.

- Navigate to the “Menus” app
- Choose your virtual brand location in the menus app
- View & manage your menu.
Managing items and modifiers:
- Select the “manage items” button to view available options to add or remove from your menu.
- To add or remove items, simply select or deselect the checkbox and click the “Save changes” button.
- To add or remove modifiers, click into “Manage items,” select or deselect the items you wish to add or remove and click the “save” button.
The Future Foods team is constantly working on ensuring your brands are set up for success. We curate brand menus with specific required items & hours that have proven to drive orders in your area.
This update gives you the power to update and publish your menu and hours as long as they are not required by the menu.
- Modifier edits will not save if you do not have the minimum required number of modifiers selected.
- When you go to modify your menu, you only will be able to add/ remove items that are available from your data-driven Future Foods brand menu.
- For all other requested changes, please reach out to our support team via the chat bubble in your dashboard.
