Setting prices on individual menu items

If all of the menu items in a menu group have a different price, as a best practice you should specify prices on the individual menu items.

To set prices on individual menu items

  1. Access the Toast administration back-end.

  2. Choose Menus > Menu management > Advanced properties to open the Advanced properties page.

  3. Expand the menus and menu groups on the Advanced properties page to locate the menu group that contains the menu items you want to edit.

  4. Click the menu group's name to view its details page.

  5. In the Pricing section, set the Menu group provides pricing configuration option to No. (No is the default.)

    Next, you set the prices on each of the menu items contained in the group.

  6. In the Items section, click a menu item's name to view its details page.

  7. In the Pricing section, set the Pricing Provider configuration option to Specify pricing on this item.


    If the menu item belongs to any other menu groups that use menu group-level pricing, the Toast platform displays the message This overrides group-level pricing provided by <menu-group-name> to inform you of the override.

  8. Set the price for the menu item. You can choose a pricing strategy (Base Price, Size Price, Menu Specific Price, Time Specific Price, Open Price, Location Specific Price) or use price levels.

  9. Save your changes.

  10. Repeat these steps for the other menu items in the menu group.

  11. If you are done editing prices for your menus, publish your changes.
