Size Groups (QS only)
Select Maintenance > Menu > Size Groups to access this function.
Size Groups enable you to easily change the size of an item on the guest check, including the modifiers that come with the item, instead of requiring you to delete the item first. You add an item in the size group to the guest check and then use another ‘Change Size’ button to increase, decrease, or ‘leap to’ a specific size of the item, should the guest request a larger or smaller size. For example, the guest orders a 6” sandwich that comes withfour ounces of meatand two pickles on a six inch bun and then changes their mind and wants a 12” sandwich that comes with eight ounces of meat and four pickles on a twelve inch bun. Instead of deleting the 6” sandwich, you can touch the ‘Change Size’ Button to switch the item to a 12” sandwich. Use the Change Size button function in Quick Service Screen Designerto create the buttons that change the size of the item. Size groups are beneficial only when you price the modifiers separately from the menu item, according to size, and need the price of the item modifiers to increase the price of the menu item when you change the item size.
Size Group quick tips
Rules or tips to follow when you add new size groups:
- You must add each item to the size group in order of smallest to largest size to properly increase and decrease the size.
- You must create a size group for each priced modifier that changes size based on the item it modifies. In this example, the pickle modifier goes from two pickles to four pickles when the item size increases to a 12” sandwich, so you need a size group that designates a 2-pickle priced modifier in Level 1 and a 4-pickle priced modifier in Level 2.
Size Group tab
Use the Size Group tabto identify the size group and select an item for each level in the size group, from smallest to biggest.
Group Bar: Settings
Name — Identifies the size group. Using a descriptive name, such as Sandwich, helps you identify size groups more quickly.
Level 1 (Smallest) through Level 10 (Largest) — Designates the specific item for the level in the size group. For example, you would assign ‘Small Sandwich’ to Level 1, ‘6” Sandwich’ to Level 2, and ‘12”Sandwich’ to Level 3 (smallest to largest). The item you select for a specific size level must coincide with the same level for its corresponding modifiers in the size order.
