Dietary & Lifestyle Needs



We help consumers “hack” our menus to customize their order to fit their dietary and lifestyle needs.

For instance, Pizza Hut allows every customer to customize their pizza with a variety of crusts and toppings. With Taco Bell’s Fresco Menu, consumers can easily replace standard ingredients with lower-calorie options and at participating KFC restaurants consumers have the choice of grilled chicken over fried chicken.
