A Business Service Born From The ‘Shop Local’ Movement

MenusNY Logo

MenusNY is a division of Nouri Data Systems, a web development company operating right here in the Throggs Neck section of the Bronx, New York.

Being a small business ourselves, we understand the importance of getting communities to realize the benefits of shopping and doing business locally.

 As a member of the Board of Directors for the Throggs Neck Merchant Association and a member of the Bronx Chamber of Commerce, we have frequently debated the issue of “What is the best way to get consumers in a community to shop locally?” Although there are many factors to consider when trying to get consumers to shop locally, all of which are outside the scope of this text, there is one thing that people will always purchase locally. Take-Out Food.

Thus, the creation of MenusNY.

With MenusNY, we can provide a service for the community, restaurants, and any local business that wants to get its information out to the local community.

This effort will provide:

  • Local residents with a menu from a local restaurant;
  • The restaurant with a full color menu for a fraction of the actual printing cost (menus are sometimes too cost prohibitive for some restaurants to print);
  • Local businesses with the opportunity to advertise to local residents.

We believe this is a first step in getting a community to shop locally.

In most communities, most local residents will never know of the existence of a majority of businesses doing business within one mile of their homes.  This is a very unfortunate situation for the businesses that are going unnoticed and the community member that thinks it needs to travel outside the community for a particular purchase or service. With MenusNY we are trying to change that, and with your help, we think we can.

If you are a small business or you know a business that can benefit from our services, please feel free to contact us at 347 838-5708, send an email to or visit our co-op page at

To search for a favorite restaurant, visit

If you own a restaurant and want to submit your menu to MenusNY, please send a PDF version of the menu to

We are currently looking for sales persons to help with our expansion process. All interested parties should send an email with their resume to

The menu submission service is free of charge to restaurants.
