LUCID Food & Beverage Costing Frequntly Asked Questions
Is it possible to generate Food Cost reports without creating Recipes?
Yes. Our Issue based costing sub module generates Food Cost reports based on issue of raw materials from stores to Kitchen/s. Reports can be generated at Outlet level or at kitchen and category level. So in this case creation of receipes are not mandatory.
How to generate accurate Food Costs report on a daily basis?
We would definitely recommend to monitor the food costs report on a daily basis.
To generate accurate food cost report every day just ensure that all the entries like Issue of raw materials to kitchen and kitchen stock are entered into the system on a daily basis.
What are the advantages of creating recipes?
Receipes are a must to measure the costs and profits at a granular menu item level. Our Menu engineering report can be generated only if receipes are created.
Is it difficult to implement recipe based costing?
Not Really. Once all recipes are created in the system just ensure that recipes are created as and when a new menu item is introduced.
Having said that, we have seen that many smaller establishments do not implement a recipe based costing system when compared to larger establishments. It is important that one of your staff is assigned the role of a F & B Cost controller and also that the management insists on seeing a Recipe based food costing report at regular intervals.
However, the starting point is to implement an issue based costing system which hardly takes any effort.
Does your system generate Liquor cost reports?
Yes. Liquor costing system is a part of our F & B costing software. Our systems generates Liquor cost report and Bar stock reports to keep the liquor costs under check.
It is important to create recipes of cocktails and define portions of Liquor menu items to derive the liquor cost reports.
What about costing of microbrewery beer?
Microbreweries can measure the costing of brewed beer by creating a seperate category and linking it to the brewery beer menu items.
Breweries can also use our production module to track and measure the production cost.
