Why Put Your Menu on Facebook?

Your customers want you to meet them where they are – on Facebook. That’s why it’s so important to make your Facebook page as “friendly” as possible. And the best place to start is the menu.

The MustHaveMenus’ Facebook menu app helps you meet the purpose of the social network – interaction.

Here are just a few ways your customers can interact with your menu:

  • Link to it to describe the fantastic dinner they had last night
  • Share your menu as a recommendation to friends and family
  • Access your specials &  find their favorite dishes in a click

    Putting your menu on your Facebook page with the MustHaveMenus app is more than a link or an image. It gives you a permanent home for your menu, so it never gets lost in the Wall posts or images.

    As you can see in the screenshot below, your menu is always center stage for easy reference and sharing.

    What about updates?
