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 and secondary), analyzes 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
