About the course

Your operation’s brand is comparable to having a contract with the customer, and the expectation is that value will be delivered in relative accordance with price and quality of service. But keeping food costs down is no easy task. In fact, it’s one of the most detail-oriented, scientific processes that go into running a restaurant and there are many challenges with keeping food costs controlled.

In this course, you’ll learn to optimize your operation’s profits by effectively managing your selection, procurement, receiving, storage and inventory management processes.

Topics Include

  • Evaluating recipes and product specifications to ensure quality and consistency
  • Determining how much product to purchase
  • Choosing the right suppliers for your needs
  • Evaluating receiving practices and identifying opportunities to reduce cost and waste
  • Applying best practices in storage and inventory control
