Ever heard of Menu Engineering?
Everyone involved in professional catering knows that some dishes generate a good margin while others bring in almost nothing. Whether it’s a sandwich bar or a five-star restaurant, some dishes are always more popular than others. So what if you had a tool allowing you to analyse your menu and improve your profit margins and sales figures?
Improve your profit margins with the Menu Engineering tool from Kitchen Cut
How does Menu Engineering work? You categorise the dishes on your menu on the basis of popularity and profitability. The program determines the popularity of each dish, based on the sales figures. Profitability is determined by the profit margin for each dish. You will be presented with a diagram showing four types of dishes, with suggestions to adapt and improve your menu for each type.
