  • An error message appears when attempting to publish a menu

Note - You can check for errors by going to MenuPublish Menu View All


  • A category or modifier has no items
  • An item has been duplicated within the same category
  • The name or description of an item is too long
  • An item has a negative price
  • A menu does not have store hours assigned to it
  • A menu already exists for the location you're trying to publish your menu

Troubleshooting Steps

  • Remove any empty category or modifier groups from the Menu and Item tabs respectively
  • If there are any duplicate items in your source of truth menu in an external delivery partner, make sure these are removed
  • Shorten product names to <70 characters and descriptions to <255 characters
  • Edit the price of any items with negative pricing to be 0.00 or higher
  • Access the Hours tab and ensure the location you're publishing to has store hours assigned to it
  • If there is an existing menu for the location you're trying to publish to, ensure that this is deleted before publishing your new menu to it
