Aww… shucks: What users are saying about Wholesum

It’s been just over 2 years since we officially launched Wholesum in an effort to help outfitters, camps, caterers and event planners streamline their menu planning.   We took a minute to check in and look back on what some of our early adopters have said about their use of Wholesum these last two years:

“For years we did all of our menu planning in excel spreadsheets, it worked but was labor intensive, required a good bit of knowledge and experience to not screw it up, was tough with dietary adjustments, and generally not very nimble or user friendly for guides.  Wholesum has changed everything.  Last year I said numerous times, starting my wholesum account was the most important thing I did.  Now I can adjust for dietary restrictions or different kinds of groups on the fly with ease, we are more efficient in our buying which has greatly reduced waste and our guides are supported with easy to use menus adjusted for their specific trip and group.  Happier clients, happier guides, saving a ton of money and less work for me!  Basically it is an all-around win.  For how much staff time, my time and food expense we are saving this is the easiest and best money saving thing you can do this year.”
—Erik, Orange Torpedo Trips


“Wholesum has been a total game-changer for us!

We were able to hire a full time food shopper with no previous experience and she was able to immediately start using the software and there was no guess work on the shopping lists. We have more flexibility with menu planning, enhancing our guests culinary experience. Setting up the recipes, creating the meal plans and exporting the shopping lists to an excel spreadsheet was very intuitive and efficient. ”
—Gia, Lewis & Clark Trail Adventures


“Wholesum has not only made my job of preparing our food packing list for a 9-month field season easier and more efficient, it has also helped reduce our staff’s workload, helped to forecast our season food budget, and to cut down on food waste.”
Daniel, EPI


“Our field staff used to get bogged down with hours of ingredient conversations, spreadsheet calculations, and reviewing recipes for dietary restrictions. With Wholesum, menu planning takes a few minutes.”
Katie, Wild Rockies Field Institute


“We used to have an old, outdated Excel spreadsheet full of errors, which was a struggle to use. Now, Wholesum Food Calculator allows us to easily drag and drop menu items, and print an organized grocery list in minutes! Bring on the field season!”
Lisa, Grand Canyon Trust
