Wix Restaurants: Setting Up Wix Restaurants Menus (New)

8 min read
Create the menu (or menus) you need for your business. Start by giving your menu a name and description (e.g. lunch menu) and then add all the menu sections you need (e.g. sandwiches, salads, beverages).
Once that's done, you can add individual menu items and customize them to suit your needs. For example, you can offer a salad with or without added chicken or in different sizes, and sell these variants at different price points. You can also add helpful labels, such as spicy or gluten-free.
