Meet The Founders

Christopher Hoffman – CEO

I am spearheading the rollout and execution of all of the new functionality of recipe costing.

Daily I work with the developers and clients to perfect recipe costing as a tool for operators to know their costs and understand how to maximize profit and quality of their recipes and menu items.

I started with humble beginnings as a crew chief at Mcdonalds, I worked my way through restaurants like Chart House, and other high-end restaurants, and hotels.

I then worked for Pizza Hut as a restaurant manager for 5 years.

I then created my own company called CrepeMaker starting with a small mobile unit on the streets of Miami and built it to a 32-unit franchise with locations all over the United States and Puerto Rico.

I developed all the operations manuals with inventory controls and design of all stores and procedures.

Within this growth I met Robert Vasquez, our co-founder, who started as a customer then grew 5 successful CrepeMaker franchise locations. We struggled with excel and many other methods but found, that no good inventory system existed for restaurants, from this struggle Recipe Costing was born.

Today we have an amazing product that restaurant , Meal Planner and Catering operators, love and helps them every day to KNOW THEIR COSTS!

My personal interests are to let an operator do what they do best. They should be growing their brand and driving the dream that was the reason they started their business. Work on your business not only in it!!

I want the owner to be focused on developing and growing the brand and for managers to focus on product quality and customer service.
