Meet & Bun is an award-winning burger bar in Perth. With two locations in Fremantle and Mt Lawley, their team is dedicated to serving up tasty gourmet burgers with fresh ingredients that elevate the humble burger to a whole new level.
For managing director, Johnny Pavlos, running Meet & Bun without an organised system caused no shortage of headaches. Stocktakes were a chaotic operation, with staff wasting hours manually inputting data. Procedures were regularly going awry during busy periods due to staff oversight or mistakes. Food costing was also a huge time burden without a way of quickly tracking costs and identifying discrepancies. While from the outside it looked like a tight ship, for a scaling business Johnny recognised that change was needed.
Restoke provided Meet & Bun with an all-in-one solution for their stock, food costing and team management needs. Recipe costing was made a lot more efficient, with AI tech capturing invoices and updating prices in real-time. Stocktakes became much easier as well, with the Restoke system making it painless for staff to complete these digitally. Another key feature was the photo system for procedures – allowing staff to complete tasks quickly while maintaining consistency.
Restoke has been described by Johnny as a “game changer”. Before Restoke, it took him four hours to do his food costing calculations - but now it’s all automated. He also has the information at his fingertips to cost numerous recipes at once. Meanwhile, his staff have saved countless hours on tasks. Thanks to Restoke, Meet & Bun has increased efficiency, cut costs and created order in their procedures - meaning Johnny can confidently grow the business while saving an incredible amount of stress.
