If a menu source indicates that a particular category is only served at certain times, you can create multiple menus to accommodate these categories.
If your restaurants have a shared menu that is used across multiple locations, you can configure it here.
Location: Select the location/store from the dropdown menu to which the menu has to be assigned. If you want to add a new location, click on the ‘Add New Location’ button. Enter the location name, address, phone number & click Save.
