Restaurant Forecasting

The most accurate restaurant sales, labor, and food cost forecasting available. Period.

Restaurant Forecasting Engine for sales, inventory levels, guest traffic, order quantities, and production needs are based on historical consumption patterns, sales trends, seasonality, special promotions and current on-hand levels. CrunchTime learns from history, and real-time data, to increase restaurant forecasting precision.

Production Accuracy prevents over-production, waste, and shortages every day. Whether your production model is based on day-part schedules, or a more fluid operation throughout the day, CrunchTime calculates precise future production needs based on:

  • Historical consumption patterns
  • Thaw times
  • Shelf life of finished goods
  • Forecast sales and guest traffic


Better control delivers your forecast, your way.

Customized Forecasting because no two restaurant companies run their businesses the same way.  CrunchTime provides a console of hundreds of ‘levers’ so you can adjust to customize the forecasting algorithms to match your business model. This includes specifying the forecasting granularity: by day, day-part, hour, half-hour, or 15 minute intervals.

A better food and labor forecast plan creates tighter operations at a lower cost.

Intelligent Staffing is done by analyzing your optimum staffing models, menu items sold, historical traffic patterns, and actual sales dollars. This is how CrunchTime creates intelligent staffing plans. The results from your forecast provides schedules with the proper staff, with the right mix of skills to deliver optimal operations at the lowest cost.

Suggested Ordering simplifies ordering at the store level with system-generated suggested ordering.  Based on configurable par levels, historical consumption patterns, sales forecasts and on-hand inventory levels, optimal inventory levels are achieved at all times.
