Menu Design

Menu creation with personalization

Guckenheimer incorporates healthy, fresh, sustainable and seasonal menus in a variety of innovative ways through our programming methodologies. Menus are created at the site level, allowing chefs the ability to focus on regionality and seasonality while using a personalized approach to understanding client preferences.

Our process

No food left behind

Our dedication to the environment means minimal food waste — and maximum creativity. Our team makes the most of every ingredient through our menuing process that relies heavily on regionality, customer and guest favorites, as well as point-of-sale data and production records. 

Food to come to work

Our strategy of using food programs to increase workplace engagement is not only to nourish but also to use food as a way for people to connect with each other and their company culture.

Local community

Community outreach

The local community plays a role in our in-house production of food and we cherish those relationships. We believe strongly in supporting and reaching out to industry peers for chef demos, station takeovers, special events, and event catering.

Development

Recipe testing

Recipes at Guckenheimer are developed and tested at our Food Innovation Test Kitchen (f.i.t. Kitchen) in South San Francisco and f.i.t. kitchen hubs located around the United States. The process requires that all recipes enter the testing queue from our top-tier chefs based in cafés in the field.
