This spreadsheet helps you not only track costs, but also document the procedures to help staff cook the item, which assists in training and creates accountability.
It's incredibly important to have up-to-date recipe costs for every item you sell. If you don't know what an item costs you to sell, you can't know how to properly price the item. If you don't do anything else to control your food costs, at least calculate your recipe costs and keep them up-to-date.
This spreadsheet helps you not only track costs, but also document the procedures to help staff cook the item, which assists in training and creates accountability. Recipe Costing Worksheet Use this spreadsheet to find the cost of a plate or the cost of a batch recipe. It will also help you automatically calculate the portion cost or serving size cost from your batch recipes.
This recipe costing spreadsheet can be linked to our Food and Alcholic Beverage Inventory Spreadsheets and our Ideal Food, Alcohol and Tobacco Cost Tracking Spreadsheets to create a control system that automatically updates all your recipe costs and lets you use those up-to-date costs to accurately track your ideal food costs. These tools replace expensive inventory and recipe software, and even give you information and control that expensive software can't. An example recipe and sub-recipe are included in the download.
