Restaurant Tip of the Week

The purchase allotment system will allow management to order what is needed to operate smoothly, while staying within the budget, and to recognize and correct problems before the end of a period. NOTE: To gain full advantage of this system, a restaurant should pay for all of its raw products, food and liquor, by COD. There are four rules that are critical to its success:

1. Cost of goods sold targets have been budgeted
2. Inventory levels are worked up and down to a target level
3. Sales forecasts have been created for each day of the month
4. Sales are tracked by major category on a daily basis
