what if there was a proven way to reduce your food costs?
Every sale you made would have a BIGGER impact on your bottom line
because unlike random price increases, every penny you save on costs goes directly into your profits.
You’d have more money to reinvest in your business, PAY YOURSELF, grow your team, maybe even prove your concept and find investors!
The possibilities are endless… and I’ve got the proven method!
I’m serious about changing the myth
that 30% food costs is a one-size-fits-all target.
The idea is unfounded + it pains me to see so many amazing business owners believing the myth and struggling financially as a result.
Break free from conventional thinking,
identify the right targets for your business
+ Boost profits
SAY HELLO TO OUR
cost saving Services
A DEEP DIVE INTO YOUR FINANCIALS, DETAILED RECIPE COSTING + A STRATEGY IMPLEMENTATION PROCESS PROVEN TO REDUCE YOUR FOOD COSTS + BOOST PROFITABILITY.
You’ll feel confident in your ingredient sourcing, product pricing + systems for keeping your costs on target. Time to start planning what you’ll do with all that extra cash…
what’s the process?
During our initial consultation we’ll identify your current food cost %
and set goals for both food costs + profits
Then we’ll dig into the work…
We’ll build out your custom ingredient database using The Ultimate Ordering + Budgeting Tool.
The database allows you to compare ingredient quality + costs across vendors, and links to our recipe costing tool providing real-time analysis of costs and profitability for each product or menu item.
We’ll jump into recipe costing and see how each of your products stack up to our new food cost target.
It’s common to find some items with food cost below your new target (that’s great!), some that are right on target (also great), and some that are too high (they’ll be our focus in step 3).
MENU AUDIT + STRATEGY SESSION
During a 1-on-1 strategy session I’ll present cost-saving recommendations, possible recipe modifications and (as a last resort) price increases. Then we’ll create a plan of action to implement the changes and cost saving strategies with your team.
I’ll also make sure everyone is trained on how to use the new ingredient database + recipe costing tools.
What are the deliverables?

After a few years of achieving a range of acceptable, high, and back to acceptable food margins, an LA-based caterer knew it was time to put an end to the rollercoaster once and for all, get consistent food cost + increase profits.
All the recipes were in her head, there was no system for ordering or controlling costs, and there was a missing link between her sales + kitchen teams that I knew could help her price menus right + stay within their food budget 100% of the time.
I created a custom Ordering + Budgeting Tool, followed by extensive recipe costing, and a menu audit + strategy session that identified high-cost ingredients, helped us price her menu correctly, and identify menu items that should be removed. Lastly I created a custom proposal builder to help meet client budgets + profit goals for every event.
We reduced food costs by 2%, and with the use of our tools + her staff’s commitment to a zero-waste kitchen, they reduced their food costs an additional 2%!
