MENU & RECIPE DEVELOPMENT
Food should be an experience...
Kode's team of culinary experts has created thousands of menus and menu items for independent and multi-unit concepts alike, understanding that menu creation is a balancing act where items must be at once craveable, driving guest loyalty, and profitable. Our work has spanned cuisines, from Mexican to Arabic, and can accommodate the most stringent dietary restrictions.
Kode's menu and recipe development services include:

Kode first begins with a high-level menu spine, featuring categories and approximate item counts. Working closely with the entrepreneur or operator, Kode then enters research & development mode, working in a test kitchen with the appropriate raw materials to create menu selections that deliver the “wow” in flavor and visual appeal while considering targeted food cost, profit contribution and the potential for consistent execution.
