Combos and choices simplify how staff place orders for menu items containing multiple products. A combo is a collection of products or choices sold together for a preset price. A choice allows customers to select one product from multiple options, called subproducts. Choices can exist as part of combos or as standalone items.
Examples of combos include:
- A "value meal" combo where a specific burger, fries, and fountain drink product are sold together.
- A "dinner special" combo where the customer selects one entrée, side, and drink. The entrée, side, and drink are choices that contain multiple types of each product.
- A "kids’ meal" combo that comes with a specific entrée but allows the customer to select one side and drink. The side and drink are choices that contain multiple types of each product.
Examples of choices include:
- An "entrée" choice containing each entrée product you offer: steak, salmon, etc. From this choice, the customer can select one type of entrée.
- A "sides" choice containing each side product you offer: mashed potatoes, broccoli, etc. From this choice, the customer can select one type of side.
- A "canned soda" choice containing each soda product you offer: cola, diet cola, etc. From this choice, the customer can select one type of canned soda.
