How QR code menus are organized

Learn the basic structure of how your QR code menu will work

qReveal’s QR code menus are organized into several levels: Locations, menus, categories, items and modifiers.

This structure is designed to give you maximum flexibility for setting up a digital QR code menu just the way you want it.

The chart below shows each layer of the qReveal organizational system and provides details on what each component includes, as well as real life restaurant examples. You can click on the “learn more” button to explore each layer in more depth.


Locations are the top level way that restaurants are organized in qReveal. Locations can be physical restaurants or food trucks, pop ups or even used as a way to designate your take out or pickup menu. A business can have one or more locations.

Each restaurant location can have one or more menus. Menus can be organized by meal or time of day — such as breakfast or late night.

Categories live under menus and are the primary way to organize each menu. Categories most commonly are used to organize by part of meal or type of food — such as appetizers or seafood.

Items is another way to describe each food item, dish or beverage you offer. Each item can have a name, description and price.

Modifiers exist under items and let customers add or remove parts of an item or modify their selection with upsells or alternate options. For example, a salad could come without chicken or customers could upgrade to shrimp. Each modifier has a name, description and optional price, which can be negative or positive.
