The new Food Attributes functionality is available for all TakeWebOrders plans and allows you to further customize your menu items to provide more options to your customers. 

These attributes can include any options you need for your item. You can add multiple attributes to an item and create additional profit centers by setting an additional price for each of the attribute options. For example: You can create a Size attribute for your drinks and set a price difference for each size. Let’s say the base price of a small fountain soda is $2.00, then the size small will have an attribute price of $0.00 for a total charge of $2.00, a medium size will have an attribute price of $1.00 for a total charge of $3.00 and a Large size will have an attribute price of $2.00 for a total charge of $4.00.
