Create and Apply Modifiers

Modifiers are the individual options selected by servers to communicate how to prepare an item to the kitchen or bar. Modifiers print in red under the Item they are attached to on the chit ticket. Modifiers can include a price to add an upcharge wherever applicable to the base item.

Modifiers appear as a list within Modifier Groups, such as Meat Temp or Martini. After a modifier is created, it must be assigned to a Modifier Group. Modifier Groups are then attached to items. Learn how to create and apply Modifier Groups to items.
