Food Cost Management

Get your food costs under control and keep them there.

With Actual vs. Theoretical Food Costing your restaurants will save 2-5% on food costs. This powerful AvT tool for restaurants allows you to compare what you actually paid for your food to what those costs should have been.   In other words, this tool identifies where you wasted money so you can improve your food cost control. Watch the video below to learn about why actual vs. theoretical food costs are such a big deal.

Sales and Cash Reconciliation – Capture mission critical data including over/short, guest counts, comps and discounts, credit card transactions, bank deposits, catering activity, day-part analysis, voids, and much more.

Loss Prevention – Identify fraudulent activities though alerts and trend tracking. Monitor high cost ingredients, isolate critical areas, and track user-specific activities to reduce any dishonest behavior. Take preventative measures to ensure that loss prevention is minimal.

Better planning eliminates waste

Menu Engineering – Engineer more profitable menus by analyzing customer demand, item percentage sales contributions, and costs and profit margins. Launch more effective campaigns by understanding the true plate costs of a new recipe, LTO or promotion – before rollout. Learn more about menu engineering.

Suggested Order – Simplify ordering at the store-level with system-generated suggested ordering based on par levels, historical consumption patterns, sales forecasts and on-hand inventory levels.

Demand-based Production – Reduce the costs associated with over-production by forecasting your food production schedule based on sales forecasts and historical consumption patterns. Build custom production schedules by hour, shift, day, week, or by prep station, and adjust plans daily and intra-day, based on traffic and consumption.
