Can I use my own domain instead of menumill.com?
Absolutely. All of our paying plans include this feature.

Can I extend Menumill with custom programming?

As a general rule, we don't offer phone support because in the time it takes to handle one customer via a phone call, we can handle dozens through email.
Also, our email support is very responsive and very personalized unlike larger companies that outsource call services. If an issue cannot be resolved via email, we will schedule a phone call to take care of you.
