potential profitability
More important than food cost is profitability.
  • Every menu item must generate its share of income to paid for all other costs and profit.
    • Referred to as: contribution marginor gross profit
  • Contribution Margin is the difference between the product cost & the selling price.
Potential Profitability

Gilbert Noussitou 2006

profitability
The larger the contribution margin is, the larger the amount of funds available to operate the business & the larger the net profit will be
  • Regardless of the food cost %, items with the largest contribution margin are the most profitable

Sales – Cost of Sales = Gross profit

Profitability

Gross Profit = Contribution Margin (C.M.)

the profit myth
In other words, profits are what ever is left after expenses have been paid.
  • Profits should be treated as a must be paiditem just like rent is.
  • Then the formula becomes:

In most peoples mind;

Revenue – Expenses = Profit

Revenue – Required Profits = Allowable Expenses

The Profit Myth

In this case, the only way to survive is to manage expenses properly!!!

Gilbert Noussitou 2006

the budget
A budget is a plan for operating a business expressed in financial terms or a plan to control expenses and profit in relation to sales.
  • A budget is a tool used with performance reports to coordinate, evaluate and control operations in accordance with the goals specified in the BUDGET plan.

Control the processes,

not the end result!!!

Gilbert Noussitou 2006

cost control process

Establish standards: (Standards = expected level of performance)

  • Measure actual results of operation
  • Compare actual results to standards
  • Identify corrective action
  • Select corrective action
  • Review corrective action
COST CONTROL PROCESS

Gilbert Noussitou 2006

food cost controls

Standard Product Specifications

  • Standard Recipes
  • Standard Yields:
    • Ratio of useable product to total weight before processing
  • Standard Portions
    • Count – ladle – scoop – bowl – weigh – etc.
  • Standard Portion Cost
    • Always resulting from the 4 previous standards!!!

There are five main standards related to cost control

Food Cost Controls

Gilbert Noussitou 2006

yield cost calculations

are an accurate reflection of desired results based on market expectations

  • encouraging excellence
  • are reasonable & challenging
  • are specific & measurable
  • allow slight flexibility to encourage creativity & challenge
  • include feed back (in control system)

Effective Standards:

Yield & Cost Calculations

Gilbert Noussitou 2006

problem food cost is too high

Reduce dollar value of food in each sale

  • Increase revenue from each sale
  • Reduce inefficiency in handling food
  • Change (review) the menu

POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS:

PROBLEM:FOOD COST IS TOO HIGH!?

Gilbert Noussitou 2006

cost controls use of leftovers

Normal waste is costed and sold

  • Abnormal waste is used but not sold
  • Proper planning is essential

THE BEST WAY TO USE LEFT-OVERS IS……

NOT TO HAVE ANY!

What is the best way to use leftovers?

EVERYTHING YOU BUY MUST BE SOLD

Cost ControlsUse of Leftovers

taking inventory

Taking Inventory;

Is that a cost control measure?

Gilbert Noussitou 2006

the formula for food cost calculation

OPENING INVENTORY $11,000.00

PLUS

PURCHASES (less credits) + $40,000.00

MINUS

CLOSING INVENTORY - $9,000.00

EQUALS

COST OF FOOD SOLD (or used) = $42,000.00

Sales are $120,000

Food Cost % = (cost) $42,000.00 x 100 = 35%

(Sales) $120,000.00
