Menu Creation and Recipe Development

The Grocerant Design Group of culinary professionals develops menus and recipes for food service concepts and prepared food offers. This is our core and what we love to do! The food is custom designed for supermarkets, convenience stores, or fast casual restaurant concepts. Our menu creation comports with your concept’s brand positioning, and typically results in the development of unique and differentiated signature items that stand out in the marketplace. We know how to create meaningful differences that your guests will notice, and talk about!

GDG starts the process with an operational discussion to understand your kitchen and style of service, and food and labor cost objectives. We develop a menu outline with a list of items for each category and review the concept list with you. Together we refine the list, then our culinary team brings to life the menu items for a tasting.  Based on feedback, we adjust the recipes as necessary, then complete and document.
