Menyou was formed in early 2012. After close examination of multiple industries, it became clear that the restaurant industry had gone far too long without disruption. With insight into the functionality of new technology, expertise in software and design, and a keen awareness of consumer behavior, the Menyou team set out to deliver a solution that would bring new efficiency and value to restaurant owners and consumers everywhere.
Menyou views the low margins and extreme competition in this industry as an opportunity. By taking the first step to change dining, the team plans to bring you the robust solutions needed to take your business to the next level.

As an incorrigible relationship-builder who believes that sharing a good meal is integral to doing business, Wayne is as dedicated to great customer service as he is a devotee of spicy food (curry is one of his favourite dishes).
