how-to-calculate-recipe-costCan you answer this question? How much does each menu item cost including sub recipes and recipes?

When building menu items it’s important to get the true food cost in order to price your menu correctly. A common practice in the restaurant business is to take the total food cost of the menu multiply it by 3 and add 1.00 or 1.50 to it.

For example, a sandwich cost (1.25) take 1.25 x 3 = 3.75 + 1.50 = the selling price of 5.25

There are other factors to costing a recipe; however, this is a good start to figuring out your basic recipe cost. I created two sites to help those interested or already neck deep in the restaurant business.

The first site is a FREE recipe costing software to help those that are just getting started or are planning to open a restaurant. Allows you to quickly put together menu items and get the cost based on the food products purchased. You can also include things like packaging.
