Assembly: Being Right on the Money
All too many operators let their employees free throw topping on their pies. This is not the way to get rich and famous. Is there a right way? There is no one right way, but anything other than free throwing will dramatically improve your bottom line.
My personal experiences have resulted in a reduction of cheese usage by 20% and protein and veggie toppings by 10 to 15%.
So, ways to achieve ideal food cost are using:
- Inline Digital Scales
- Cups with Ounce Graduations
The next system will use spoodles that are sized by the ounce. These guys are either solid or perforated, depending on the topping and are very handy for veggies. Right along the same thought would be using small plastic soufflé cups. Either one of these systems will make a difference, but are flawed because of over and under filling the cups. If you really want to do it right, invest in a great scale. The payback will be, depending on volume, almost immediate.
