POS SUCCESS
A point-of-sale system is a must
for proper food cost. It's the only way
to really know what you sold to base
real numbers of what you purchased
against. When this is set up well, it can
tell you what you sold versus your theoretical food costs. This only happens
if you update the costs for each item
based on your invoices' changing prices.
In addition, a POS ticket must be sacred
in your kitchen. That means nothing

-- and I mean NOTHING -- gets made
without a ticket. Otherwise a server
can call for a pizza, then keep it for
themselves. Only managers responsible
for that store's profit-and-loss statement should have authority to comp
something, and you must go through
those comps as an owner and dissect
the reasoning. False coupons, tons of
trades or free gift cards can destroy a
food cost number quick.

ground in front of them. If you have one item in
front of another item, then staff will inevitably
not see it and order more, let it go bad or go
to the supermarket in a rush not knowing you
already have it. For items in boxes, like paper
towels, cut the tops off and flip it sideways so
anyone can see that the box has only two rolls,
not 12, to avoid assuming you have product you
don't have.
* FIFO: FIRST IN, FIRST OUT. This is restaurant
101. With that said, I still see it done poorly
at a lot of kitchens. Unopened items should be
organized by date and in long lines with nothing
in front of it blocking the vantage point. If you
get more of that product in, for instance milk
cartons, they go to the back of the line. Now on
to products made in house. These have to have
a LARGE label with the date, who prepped it
and the name of the product. You can use day
dots, but names of the staff and the item's name
are important. It alleviates ambiguity. Once that
is done it should be stored in order of date to do
a proper FIFO process. Electric food labels are
getting popular, and with good reason. It makes
sure you know who made the product and when.
