Modifiers

Modifiers


Use modifiers to give your customers the option to customize their orders. Examples include which dressing to include, topping choices, extra add-ons or even the option to remove ingredients.

Create modifiers directly from the Modifiers tab or from a menu item (see below instructions) and it will be saved to your full modifiers list so you can add it to other menu items.

There are two ways to create modifiers:

  • From the Modifier tab: the modifiers tab is the easiest place to add a modifier that you want to use for multiple menu items.
  • From an individual menu item: if you have specific modifiers for one of your menu items, you can add them right from the menu item (see instructions below*). 

Add a modifier

  • Log in at restaurant.grubhub.com
  • Select Menu from the left sidebar, or the  icon on mobile.
  • Under the Menu heading, select the Modifiers tab and then the + Add modifier button.

  • Under Modifier Prompt, enter a question or statement, such as “Choose a side.” Think about how you ask your customers which modifiers they’d like with this menu item in person. For example, a steak might offer more than one side—a baked potato, fries or asparagus—as modifiers. For this example, “Choose a side” would fit as a modifier prompt.

  • Enter an Internal Name you’ll recognize on incoming orders.
  • Add as many modifiers as needed for your menu item and any related upcharges. 
  • Note: any upcharges will be an additional charge on top of the base price.

  • Under Selection Model, select whether the modifiers are optional or required, and set limits to how many modifiers a customer can choose.
  • Select Save & done to save your new modifier.
  • *You can also add a modifier from a menu item. Select a menu item and in the Info & Modifiers tab, click + Add a new modifier group. Your new modifier will be saved to the modifiers page so you can add it to other items as well. Select Save & done to save your new modifier.

Update, add, or delete modifiers

  • Log in at restaurant.grubhub.com
  • Select Menu from the left sidebar, or the  icon on mobile.
  • Under the Menu heading, find the Modifiers tab and select the modifier you want to update to open the Edit window.
  • In the Modifier Info tab, update the diner instructions, internal name, modifier options and prices, and selection model. Select the X next to each modifier option to delete it from the group.
  • Select Save & done to save updates to your modifier. 

Add, edit, or delete modifiers from a menu item

  • Log in at restaurant.grubhub.com
  • Select Menu from the left sidebar, or the  icon on mobile.

  • Use the Select an existing modifier group dropdown to add an existing modifier to the menu item, or create a modifier by selecting + Add new modifier group.

  • Select Save & done to save your changes.
