Meeting the Government Mandate

The Food and Drug Administration has mandated that on December 1,  2016 all nation’s chain restaurants, pizza parlors and movie theaters to post calorie counts on their menus.
A massive undertaking is in order to find calorie counts in spirits, beer, wine, mixes and garnishes. Each individual cocktail listed on a menu will have to show the amount of total calories the guest will consume.
At Straight Up Solutions we have created a state of the art recipe rolodex and database which will keep track of calories in all of your cocktails.
We have worked closely with industry experts and our partners to compile the calories for hundreds of the brands. Our database is consistently being updated, so you will always have up to the date information.

Capabilities

  1. We have a calorie count data base of:
    Spirits: 900+
    Wines: 80+
    Beer: 35+
    Mixes: 325+
 Fruits / vegetables & garnishes: 275+
  2. Our data base allows you to type in any product (in the data base) and get the immediate calorie count (give or take a few calories)
  3. Our data base allows you to find drinks under / over a specific calorie count.  We have filter function that allows you to search a variety of filters.
  4. Our data base allows you to sort by style of drink, garnish, spirit, restaurant concept, supplier, varietal, glassware, etc… with the click of a button.
  5. National average pricing is included
  6. Profit for predetermined pricing is calculated (based on national averages)
  7. There are numerous layouts that allow for 1-2-3-4 or more drinks on one page print options. Our format is also easy to transfer to a recipe rolodex card format.

Two Ways to Enjoy

Option 1

SUS will set up and maintain a customized web site with your logo and any verbiage you would like to add to make it more personal. SUS will receive national average pricing and calories of your portfolio. Once SUS receives your recipes, SUS will type them into the data base and upload them onto your site. You can then supply SUS with all of your recipes from multiple sources with photos to input and upload. SUS will use all the national average pricing and calories supplied by you and then research and supply all the others that are needed to complete the provided recipes (see the pricing chart for those services). If there are recipes that don’t have pictures or are not accurate to the recipe then SUS can reshoot the pictures to best represent the cocktail (see the pricing chart for those services).

Option 2

SUS will set up and maintain a customized web site with the your logo and any verbiage you would like to add to make it more personal. SUS will receive national average pricing and calories of your portfolio. Once SUS receives the 100+ recipes supplied by you, SUS will type them into the provided data base format and upload them onto the your site. You can then type in all of your own recipes and input your current photos (which all approved team members can peruse). You can then research and input the national average pricing and calories for the recipes you choose to have on your site. If there are recipes that don’t have pictures or are not accurate to the recipe then SUS can reshoot the pictures to best represent the cocktail (see the pricing chart for those services) or the you can choose to them internally.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to sign a contract?

Yes, there is a one page contract that reads that you agree to pay the agreed upon fees and that you have the ability to cancel at anytime.

Does SUS have the ability to view all of my recipes?

Unfortunately, there is no way to block the administrator from the site so SUS would be able to access the recipes. However, the program software can be purchased and the client could have their own internal site along with all the training needed to upkeep it if so desired.

Where do you get you Nutritional Values from?

Numerous regulated sites, but mostly straight from the suppliers site for those that offer it.

What do the monthly licensing and maintenance fee cover?

Maintenance is necessary to keep the server(s) up and running, to manage security patches and updates, and backups created and managed. There are also licensing fees that are ongoing.

Who owns the data base and its functionality if we were to cancel our agreement with SUS?

You, the client would still have/own all of your recipes, with all the information. They would be exported into a manageable EXCEL format. As far as the data base and its’ functionality, that would remain SUS’ property.
