If you want to add a new item to your menu, the recipe costing tool can help. The benefit of Orca’s advanced inventory management system is its ability to handle every area of operation, and integrate each aspect with all the others. As you add or change ingredients or measurements, all the figures update in real time. These include:
By using this tool, you can see which ingredient is responsible for driving profits down and change the recipe or your menu price accordingly. Never before have you been able to intricately craft your costs and profits so easily. More impressively, all external factors update automatically, which means if the cost of a single item increases, all recipes using that item will calculate the new cost percentage and profits instantly. You can come back and check the cost of your entire menu occasionally to easily see which items have had their cost percentage creep upward over the years. Even better, the system allows you to cut them back down.
