Introduction: Why Are My Food Costs so High?

Restaurant owners, managers and chefs all stress over food costs. They are never low enough. With good reason, in the tight-margined world of food service, a few percentage points can be the difference between a very profitable restaurant and one that isn’t around in a year.

In this ebook, we will cover some of the most common reasons that food costs might be too high at a restaurant and solutions to bring them under control. Most often, the issue relates back to improper inventory management. It could be that inventory isn’t recorded properly, the scales used to weigh it are inaccurate, or inventory results aren’t being properly utilized to control food costs more closely.

High food costs can also be caused by waste; which comes in many forms: food is spoiling because too much is being ordered, staff are taking items home, or there is inconsistency in the size of portions being served.

We will also discuss how to reduce food costs by ensuring they are calculated correctly; making the ordering, accepting and tracking inventory faster and more accurate; uncovering theft and waste; and optimizing the amount of inventory you have to carry.
