  • Today’s Notes

    • Cost Control

    • Standardized Recipes (introduction)

  • Cost Control -

  • Calculate Actual Cost; Convert to Cost %

  • Compare Actual Cost % To:

  • Industry Average %

  • Previous Actual Cost % (Past Income Statements)

  • Operating Budget (Estimated Cost %)

  • Specific Standard For Your Company

  • Specific Standard For Your Property

  • Variance From The Standard

  • First Decide If The Variance Is Significant

  • Is Standard Cost Greater Than Actual Cost?

  • Is Actual Cost Greater Than Standard Cost?

  • What Is The Percentage Variance?

  • What Is The Dollar Variance?

  • How Much Of A Variance Is Acceptable To Your Company?

  • Why Is There A Significant Variance?

  • There Are Many Possible Explanations

  • The Problem(s) Can Usually Be Traced To:

  • Arithmetic Error (Sales Revenue Or Costs)

  • Unexpected Waste

  • Incorrect Portioning

  • Purchases Are Off-Spec.

  • Improper Storage

  • Stealing

Correcting The Variance

  • How Much Time/Effort Do You Want To Spend?

  • How Important Is The Problem?

  • How Specialized Is The Problem?

  • Are You Sure You’ve Isolated The Right Problem?

  • Is The Corrective Action Easy To Track?

Correcting The Variance

Objectives for Today

1. Review Menu Pricing Methods

2. Review Controls Standards

3. Review Standardized Recipe Concepts

4. Complete Standardized Recipe handout


Homework 4 is due next week

Menu Pricing

  • Subjective Methods

  • Reasonable Price (Usually Copying the Competition’s Prices)

  • Highest Price

  • Loss Leader

  • Lost Leader (delete)

  • Intuitive (Trial And Error)

Objective Method Used To Price The Regular Restaurant Menus - “Multiple” Method

  • Cost Out Menu Items -- use ingredients method, prime ingredient method, or mark-up + method

    • Ingredient Method= each ingredient is costed & added together

    • Prime Ingredient Method=The formula is to add the cost of labor and cost of food, add a percentage for profit. This method is good for dishes that require a lot of preparation.

    • Mark Up Method=each ingredient has food cost percentage added to it or cost is just multiplied by three (factor method) not including labor or other costs

  • Multiply Cost By 3 to 7

  • Check Out The Competition

  • Adjust Multiple, If Necessary

  • Do Menu Engineering Analysis

  • Adjust Multiple Again, If Necessary

Objective Method Used To Price Catering Menus - “Thirds” Method

  • 1/3 Cost Of Food, Beverage, Other Supplies

  • 1/3 Cost Of Labor, Overhead

  • 1/3 Profit

  • Aggravation Factor?

  • Shoulder Periods/Down Time?

Objective Method Used To Price Catering Menus - “Contribution Margin” Method

  • Calculate Average CM Needed, Per Guest (This is equal to all expenses -- except F&B -- plus net profit, per guest)

  • Calculate Cost Of Food And Beverage, Per Guest

  • Add Together To Determine Price, Per Guest

Other Pricing Procedures

  • Pricing Food And Beverage Daily Specials

  • Pricing All-You-Can-Eat (Drink) Items

  • Pricing Merchandise

  • Pricing Sales Promotions

Food Production and Planning

Standardized Recipes

Goals and the Standard Cost

Standard costs are one of the most important control tools within F & B operations.

The standard cost

  • ·        that you establish, defines the expected cost.  

  • ·        acts as a goal. 

    You can establish standards for:

  • ·        the operation as a whole  

  • ·        each individual profit(cost) center

  • ·        foods alone  

  • ·        beverages alone  

  • ·        each meal period  

  • ·        each particular menu  

  • ·        each food group on the menu  

  • ·        each specific menu item

    The more specific your information (your standard) is:

  • ·        the more useful for control purposes.  

  • ·        the more timely and costly to develop, maintain and use.

Control Tools

First create the menu.

  • **Based on the menu

  • there are 5 (five) control tools to use in determining standard food and beverage costs:

    The Five Control Tools:

  • 1. Standard Purchase Specifications

  • 2. Standard Recipes

  • 3. Standard Yields

  • 4. Standard Portion Size

  • 5. Standard Portion Costs

Review-What is a Standardized Recipe?

  • is a detailed formula for producing each menu item, food and beverage.

    you need precise records of:

  • a) ingredients

  • b) amounts

  • c) procedures.

    A standardized recipe is a customized recipe developed by a particular establishment describing exactly how they want a dish to be prepared, including specifications of the necessary tools and equipment, the time and personnel involved, and ideally a picture of the item as desired for service.

The standardized recipe

  • should include all relevant information right down to the garnish (if any), plate size and plate presentation.

    A recipe out of a cook book is NOT a standardized recipe, because

  • . . . equipment varies from place to place.

  • identical equipment performs differently from place to place.

  • utensil availability may vary.

  • interpretations required: "golden brown", "moderate heat", "cook until done”

  • raw food products (ingredients) may vary in terms of "types",

  • flavor, size, and availability.

Developing a standardized recipe:

12 steps:

  • 1 A) Talk through the process with the preparers (cooks, bartenders) as you observe and take detailed notes.

  • 1 B) Find a recipe that you would like to use (existing files, food magazine, mothers files . . .)

  • 2)Check if you have the necessary tools and equipment, i.e., is it at all feasible for you to prepare, or do new purchases have to be made?

  • 3) Cost it out:

  • -is it feasible for your market?

  • -is it worthwhile to produce, i.e., is it profitable.

  • -loss leader?

  • 4)Try it out in its original format.

  • Is it OK?

  • Evaluate: Appearance, tenderness, texture, flavor, overall quality . . .

  • 5)Convert the recipe to your standard size, specifying portion size,yield and number of portions.

  • 6)"You" make the converted recipe.

  • Evaluate again: does it still have the desired quality characteristics? Some recipes do not work well in large

  • quantity,

  • 7) Make any desired or necessary changes.

  • 8) Make the batch/converted recipe at minimum 3 times:

  • is it consistent?

  • are the flavors and other characteristics the same?

  • is it functional to produce in this size?

  • 9)Put into your standardized recipe format.

  • 10) Have your preparation employees prepare (recreate) it according to the standard format.

  • Evaluate, adjust, change/clarify directions.

  • 11) Train your preparation staff.

  • 12) File and/or start using.

  • Keep records of

  • ·        popularity

  • ·        reproducibility

  • ·        acceptability.
