You can create a combo with choices in Restaurant Manager to offer customers a combo with multiple courses and a choice of items within each course. For example, a combo with choices might be:
- Drink: coke, water or coffee
- Side: fries, salad or coleslaw
- Main: burger, club sandwich or mac and cheese
To get started, first create choices as products. Then you can create a combo and add those choices as sub-products to the combo. NOTE: In order to prevent the choices from appearing as menu items in Restaurant POS, de-select the Visible checkbox in the Choice product popup.
When you add a combo with choices to an order in Restaurant POS, a popup will appear prompting you to select a choice for each course in the combo.
