Introducing the Theoretical COGS Menu MGMT Tool.
Utilize the information from MM Master Recipe MGMT Tool (Step 1) to populate this tool and provide weighted Theoretical costs by Menu Category, so that you can manage your whole menu, not just recipe-by-recipe. This is basically next-level menu management badassery.
Looking back at historical data allows you to stay profitable and make necessary menu changes when needed. Trends matter.
After a few months of history, you will be in a position to engineer your menus just as effectively as large companies.
What's the time commitment?
Once you have your Master Recipe MGMT Tool completed, it can take an estimated 3-5 minutes per menu item to transfer that information to this spreadsheet.
Monthly Time Commitment After Initial Setup? Estimated at 60-90 minutes per Month. This work involves updating any recipe changes or deletions. It will be more if you overhaul your whole menu.
This is the investment you should consider making if you want to drive Savings between 3-5% and more (in a $10K / week business, this translates to $15-25K+/year savings every year.)
