How Apicbase Helps Restaurant Operators Create Accurate Bills of Materials With a Push of a Button

What Is a Bill of Materials for Restaurants?

  • recipe BoM [scaling a single recipe 100, 200, or even 500 times]…
  • menu BoM [scaling an entire menu however many times you need], or…
  • production plan BoM [prepping for a 1000-seat B2B event]…

Apicbase Makes Them Appear Out of Thin Air [Almost]

Replace 100s of spreadsheets with automated calculations and actionable insights.
  • a hotel kitchen hand tasked with scaling a popular breakfast dish to 100 portions before a large group comes in on the weekend;
  • a restaurant sous chef who wants to create a Friday night production plan based on current [and forecasted] reservations;
  • a B2B catering head chef who needs to figure out how to price an elaborate 10-course corporate dinner for 800 people.
