#80: Four Recipe Costing Card Musts for Absolute Accuracy

September 6, 2023 by David Scott Peters

If you have been following me for any length of time you have heard me say the following statement: The two most important systems any restaurant should have in place are budgets and recipe costing cards.

Why are these two systems so important?

They move you from a reactive form of management to a proactive form of management, which is essential to controlling costs and planning for restaurant profits. In this episode of my podcast for restaurant owners, The Restaurant Prosperity Formula, I teach you the four things you must be doing when it comes to ensuring your recipe costing cards are accurate. This is important to listen to even if you have recipe costing cards because many restaurant owners who say they have accurate, up-to-date recipe costing cards still have incorrect cards. Bad numbers give you bad results, so listen in to learn how to review your recipe costing cards and update them so they really are accurate and up to date.

If you have recipe costing cards, it’s time to do a complete review of them and make the necessary changes so you can make the money you deserve.
