Recipe Costing Software provides the only food costing software of its kind in the industry. This off-the-shelf back-office suite includes several point of sale (POS) integrations.

Knowing your recipe costs helps you make strategic decisions that can reduce your expenses and improve your bottom line.

Recipe Costing

Create Recipes and Add Sub-Recipes Easily

The recipe cost section in our recipe costing software gives the total recipe costs, including items, materials, and labor to make the recipe. There is a total food cost in your currency and a food cost percentage.

Do You Know Your Recipe Costs?

Easily scale recipes using our recipe converter. Our software will calculate the new costs after entering a percentage or serving size. Let us do the math for you so you know the cost of the recipe at any portion size.

Recipe Costing

Identify Costly Food Items and Materials

Enter quantity and portion size needed in any recipe. Our food prep software will calculate the cost based on the weight selected. Recipe costing has both metric and imperial weights. This feature identifies the foods or other materials that cost the most in the recipe. You can use this information to determine the price of the dish or budget your purchasing.

Recipe Costing

Add Labor in Recipe and Menu Costs

Our recipe costing program takes labor costs into consideration. Add theoretical labor to recipes to help calculate your menu costs more accurately. We separate food, materials, labor, and overhead costs for better analysis. You can zero in on the actual food costs of the recipes and menu items without the influence of labor and overhead expenses.

Write up Preparations and Procedures

Don’t leave your cooks confused in the kitchen. Help your staff make each recipe perfectly every time by typing out directions in the preparations and procedures section of our food costing software. Our text editor allows you to bold, highlight, and italicize parts of the recipe and include hyperlinks to videos and pictures. This feature helps the important sections stand out so your cooks perform every step.

Recipe Costing

Identify Allergens With Every Recipe

Build recipes and enter food items into the restaurant costing software. Recipe Costing Software will identify and display the allergens as recipes and menu items are created. Knowing which allergens are in the recipe is important. Your cooks will know to follow safe practices to prevent cross-contamination. You can also use this data to specify the allergens for each recipe on your menu so customers with food allergies can choose meals safe for them to eat.

Recipe Costing

Scale Recipes by Percentage or Portions

Keep recipes and menu items consistent using our recipe converter to scale recipes by percentages or serving sizes. Cooks can scale recipes from the recipe page or the actual recipe report and use a mobile device or print out the newly scaled recipe. Our meal preparation software keeps the proportions of each ingredient correct so the recipe is accurate at all portion sizes.
