How to Use a Restaurant Recipe Costing Template

Creating a restaurant recipe costing template can help save time and money when it comes to pricing dishes. Here are four steps to help you get started:

1. Collect the ingredients

Gather the ingredients you will need to make the dish and determine the cost of each ingredient. Make sure to include any ingredients that are used for garnishing the dish, as well as any additional ingredients that are needed for the preparation of the dish.

Create tasks in ClickUp to track all ingredients needed and assign a budget to each one.

2. Calculate the cost of labor

Calculate the cost of labor for the dish in terms of how much time it will take to prepare, cook, and serve it. Also include the cost of any additional labor for cleaning up after the dish is served.

Use custom fields in ClickUp to keep track of labor costs.

3. Calculate the cost of overhead

Calculate the overhead costs associated with the dish, such as rent, utilities, and other miscellaneous costs.

Use Goals in ClickUp to help break down overhead costs and assign a budget to each one.

4. Calculate the total cost

Once you have all of the information, add up the costs of ingredients, labor, and overhead to determine the total cost of the dish.

Use the Table view in ClickUp to create your own customized spreadsheet and recipe costing report.
