Control and Manage Recipe Costs

The recipe cost section give the total recipe costs to include items, materials and labor to make the recipe. There is a total food cost in currency and a food cost percentage. In most recipes, the food cost percentage will be 100% unless you’re going to sell the recipe. If you are selling the entire recipe batch, then a price to sell the recipe will be required. The price directly affects the food cost percentage. For example, a recipe that cost $10.504 with a selling price of $10.504,, the our food costs will be 100%. If I sold that recipe for $25.97, then my food cost will be at 26.01%. Playing with the items or changing the price of the recipe will affect your food costs. Many of our customers use recipes when creating menu items or to get the plate costs. In the example above, the Alfredo sauce will be combined with fettuccine pasta. In this case, we are combining our pasta and recipe to get our plate cost for the men item.
