The principles employed, and the system we now provide, are based on years of experience in the travel industry, from rent-a-car to hospitality, to online business and leisure travel.
Based on our international experience we believe that with menumodo we have created a service with universal appeal and applications. Building on the global appeal of food and travel, we plan to develop a network of distribution for menus, to help visitors, guests and diners find the restaurants they will enjoy, aided by reliable information, online, while restaurants and hotels can continue to focus on their core business - providing excellent service and products to their diners and guests.
We are committed to providing good value and will continue to evolve our system ahead of the curve in order to allow restaurants to fully participate in Web 2.0 and beyond, with a trusted partner and at a reasonable cost – allowing them to focus on their core business.
