Is your menu set up to maximize profitability? Outfox can help find out.
Outfox allows chefs and restaurant managers to capture daily and weekly purchasing requirements – based on the ingredients in the recipe for specific menu items and how many orders of the dish need to be prepared. We provide the tools to quickly build recipes and menus so that menu line item cost can be discovered at a glance. Recipe and menu costs are automatically updated at the time of food item delivery. All food, beverage and restaurant supply items can then be reviewed by supplier to see which supplier can supply which item at the best price. Menu line item costs can be readily tracked for the time period specified (day, week, month, year).
For example, a restaurant may have 5-10 regular and special menu items that include chicken breasts. Based on the recipe and expected volume for each menu item, Outfox will calculate daily and weekly requirements for chicken breasts and identify which supplier has the best price for that quantity of chicken breasts — and all the other ingredients that go into each regular and special menu item.
And integration with your POS systems enables you to track revenue and costs as menu and recipe mix and costs change over time.
The Outfox platform can be used for:
- Purchasing and Supply Chain Management: Getting the right product at the right time at the right price.
- Enterprise Restaurant Management: Allowing multi-location restaurants to centralize purchasing management, manage inventories, and monitor food costs.
