Setting up suppliers allows you to streamline your ordering process. Once your finished, you'll have a birds-eye view of all your suppliers and the basket of items you can order from them. It's also a pre-requisite for uploading prep and dish recipes, which will help you understand your automated food-costs.
Prep recipes are the starting point for any dish and will feed into your overall food costs. They are the individual recipe items that will be used to create your menu items. For example, if you were making a burger with a special sauce, the special sauce recipe would be the prep recipe.
Make sure you add your supplier items first before this step!
Bring together your supplier items and prep recipes to create your end product, the dish. Once you've formed your dishes, you'll be able to visualise their cost using our food costing algorithm.
You can now quickly reproduce your menu on the Restoke platform. This is done by pulling dish recipes into this section. You can also choose to create multiple menus to cater for specials or seasonality.
Preparation runs refers to your 'Mise en place' - ensuring all ingredients are ready to go in their required units of measurement. This will set up your kitchen and/or bar for daily service. An example of this would be to bottle all your sauces in their required quantities for a given day.
A master stocktake can be generated to quickly calculate how much stock you have on hand at any given time and is broken down per supplier and item. Once this is done, you'll have a better understanding of your inventory.
The task tool is used to assign one-off activities that fall outside day-to-day procedures. If you have a unique task, you can set it up in the platform and assign it to your team. For example, if a special guest is visiting the venue, you can set up a task to make sure a particular staff member oversees their experience.
