Recipe Management Software
A digital library for your recipes and menus with automated food cost calculations, profit alerts and allergen labels. Accessible to staff at every location.
Recipe management software is an essential tool for executive chefs and restaurant managers of single and multi-unit operations.
All your ingredients and suppliers in one place; loaded with allergen, packaging and pricing details. Assign assets to individual outlets or deploy group-wide.
Create fully costed and portioned recipes (and sub-recipes) with step-by-step methodologies and dietary info. Tweak to perfection and assign to locations.
Develop profitable and popular menus for all your concepts, stores and brands. Generate allergen labels and nutri-scores. Put menus into production via auto-generated bills-of-materials.
The days are long gone when a ‘recipe database’ was nothing more than a grease-stained bundle of sheets, held together by sticky tape and kept in the back of a cupboard along with a jar of five-spice and an old Nokia phone charger.These days recipes are the pillar of business management.You use recipes to keep track of margins and food costs; to engineer your menus and optimise procurement; to communicate allergens and nutritional values and ensure consistency of production in a multi-unit operation.In other words, recipes are at the heart of your food business. Not only because of their apparent culinary value but because of the less visible business value.A recipe management system multiplies that business value.Software for better recipe management is the steering wheel of your ship. It’s the GPS-system that keeps your restaurant business on target.
The two areas in recipe management where you can’t afford mistakes are food costs and allergens.The first tells you if you are making enough to keep the ship afloat, the second prevents you from accidentally poisoning customers.Apicbase monitors both (and a lot more). The system tells you when profit is slipping away and what menu-items contain food allergens.
It’s no secret that the restaurant industry operates on notoriously thin margins. Every little percentage counts.Updating recipes, unfortunately, is time-consuming (and pretty boring, if you ask us).Ingredient prices, on the other hand, change frequently. So without regular updates, you really have no idea about profitability at all.With Apicbase you can swipe food costing of your plate.When ingredients change, all recipes and menus with that ingredient are updated instantly.The same goes for all menu and recipe calculations, allergen labels and nutri-scores.That’s 10 hours on average you gain every month. A day and a half, wow, the things you can do.
To ensure consistency, communication is key.
When you have people working in shifts, different locations or in ghost kitchens you need to be sure everybody is on the same page at all times.Customers expect the same great experience at every one of your hotel restaurants, food outlets or online ordering channels.Thanks to our recipe management software all your kitchen teams have access to ingredients lists, recipes, prep overviews, plating instructions and menus.You can attribute different properties to each team depending on, for example, location or target audience. And compare the performance of all outlets.
A dark kitchen will have a delivery specific menu. Hotels will have seasonal menus depending on their location (there is no point in offering the same December menu in Austria as in Australia, right?).You develop menus in the central recipe library and specify what information is intended for whom.What’s even better, you don’t have to email anything to anyone: no spreadsheets, no word-documents, no nothing. Your teams can look up everything in the database, from training videos to pricing.
That is easy and efficient.
Your online ordering and digital kiosk menus are always up to date.The apps you love lock seamlessly on to our API and pull the most recent pricing, food allergens, product availability and other data straight from the Apicbase back-end.
Every sale recorded in your ePOS-system is checked against the recipes in Apicbase. Our app depletes your inventory accurately up to a single gram.
A single push of a button generates shopping lists with nuclear precision and sends them directly to your preferred suppliers.Save time, reduce food waste and improve quality of service.
F&B managers, the supply chain, production planners & menu engineers, all depend on well-tested, well-costed recipes with reliable yields.
Changes are instantly reflected throughout the system.
Apicbase helps us streamline our back of house operations. It enables us to deliver a consistent product across sites and teams. And we remain in control of CoGS at any given time.
