RECIPE WRITING & COSTING
Above, you can see that the ginger root in the recipe, despite being one of the smaller volumes of ingredients, comprises 37% of the total cost and that by halving the amount in the formula (or finding a less expensive component), you could reduce food cost by 17 cents, which adds up! Unilever Brands presents an excellent learning module on why recipe costing is vital to your restaurant’s profit margin and bottom line. Our restaurant consultants can help you navigate the process or perform it for you for as little as $25 per recipe.
The final component of our recipe writing services is providing accurate nutritional information so your business can highlight low fat, low carb, or other nutritionally beneficial recipes to your customers. Many restaurant-goers these days are looking for menu items that subscribe to specific diets like gluten-free, keto, or paleo, and by providing this information you can attract the right customers to your business.
Set your restaurant apart from the competition by being transparent about the nutritional content of your foods and invite your customers on your healthy food journey! Here is a great report from the International Food Information Council Foundation on Food and Health that can shed some light on what consumers are looking for and how your business can capitalize on it by having professionally researched, written, and analyzed recipes by a restaurant consulting firm like Uncommon Fruit LLC.
