  • Understand the nuances of different restaurant costs

  • Turn all this data into insights to make more informed decisions

Why are restaurant costs so difficult to manage?

Controlling costs and protecting your restaurant’s margins is particularly challenging right now. It’s never been a breeze. Now tons of outside factors are drastically impacting restaurant costs these days, including: 

  • Labor shortages

  • Supply chain struggles

  • Rising costs and general inflation

These ongoing challenges make it more important than ever for restaurants to wrangle control of their costs — and increasingly harder to do so without the proper systems in place.

What can restaurants do differently to gain control of costs?

It’s critical that restaurants are consistently capturing ingredient cost updates. Too many operations jump straight to inventory or recipe software as a fix-all for cost control.

These tools are critical, but they’re only as impactful as the data that powers them. Invoice line-item details, in particular, are of utmost importance for costing data.

Why is restaurant cost control so critical?

Controlling your restaurant costs — food, dry goods, labor, and more — is essential for tracking and maximizing profitability across your operation. Precise cost control empowers you to forecast future profits, set goals, and plan for growth. 

This Restaurant Cost Control Guide brings all of these factors together to show you how you can control the controllables across your entire restaurant operation. Download today to learn how to take control of your restaurant costs.
