To balance expenses, you need to set the right price on your menu. But this is no easy task. Landing on the exact price for each dish is time-consuming — weighed down with formulas and full of trial and error. That’s why we’ve created a food cost calculator that can do it for you.
Lightspeed’s food cost calculator breaks down your menu per dish. It factors in each ingredient (primary & secondary), analyses your desired margin, and then calculates:
– Total cost of the dish
– What is the markup amount
– Your profit per sale
– How much to charge your customers
