Most cafes we encounter are operating with their food costs too high, and many have never worked out what the food costs of their menu are. The cost of the ingredients it takes to make each menu item should average out across your menu to no more than 30% of the price of the dish or drink (before GST).
Cafe owners and their teams could go through the process of costing out each item and realigning the menu, but many don’t have the time or tools to do this efficiently, which is where we can help.
Cafe Lab will work with you and your kitchen team to:
- Weigh and Measure portions
- Gather the required pricing data
- Build ingredient lists
- Calculate the costs for each individual menu item
- Advise on updating the menu and the best strategy for introducing the changes into your cafe while keeping your customers happy
As each cafe situation is unique, contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your requirements and we can develop a custom package just for you. We’ve saved our customers thousands, and most of our them recoup the cost of their menu costing package in just a couple of weeks.
