Pros: The interface is very user-friendly, which is a big thing for me. Also, there are a lot of ways to customize each recipe entry to tailor it to exactly what I need, which is huge because there can be so much variance when it comes to writing, testing, and preparing different types of seasonal recipes. The menu and purchasing sections are an absolute life-saver! It takes about 1/4 of the time it used to take, which is huge when you work long hours especially. Another major plus is the fact that the service is fantastic. Too often these days, companies don't want to listen to their customers' feedback and products just don't get better. In the time that I've been using Parsley, I've received prompt responses in communication and they've even implemented some of my suggestions. There are regular updates as well as regular communication regarding new features, upcoming changes, and things of that sort. Overall a great product for anyone in the foodservice industry to stay organized and efficient.

Overall: This software has helped me single-handedly write recipes, menus, and purchase orders for a prepared meal delivery service operation from the startup stage. It's enabled me to put great detail into my recipes and it's given some much-needed structure and efficiency to the entire process.

This program has been wonderful!! Saves money, creates lists, and manages our food spending.

Pros: Recipe measurement configurations, prep lists, 'event' forecasting, and nutritional information listing. This program really helps our company stay on task, and allows us to 'run lean' per se. Minimize our prepping and reduce our wastes. On top of all this, the support staff has been amazing with her customer service. We have spoken many times when I have had questions or did not understand something. She will screen share with me and walk me through everything, until I have full understanding.

Cons: Sometimes there are hiccups here and there. However, the support team continue to fix any issues as they arise. They respond quickly to an issue and get it fixed on the same day. At times I wish we could upload our CRM data directly into Parsley; instead of manually entering things. But that is okay. They have recently allowed downloading of select pieces from the program. This tells me they are continuing to make this program user friendly with other programs.

So Happy to have found Parsley!

Pros: I have had the pleasure of working with Parsley for the past six months in my profession as a contract catering kitchen lead. I have found it to be a very robust and flexible platform for a variety of tasks, most notably recipe-scaling and prep list creation. I am continually amazed at how much it has reduced waste and improved my prep efficiency.

I highly recommend this software for any chef, caterer and restaurant owner who is interested in a tool that has the potential to dramatically impact cost effectiveness. I know that IĀæm hooked!

Cons: Clearly, you must be prepared to invest the time to initially enter recipes, ingredients and vendors. However, once that investment has been made, recipe modifications, price updates and other adjustments are easily accommodated.
