Tracking a restaurant inventory or bar inventory is easy with Windstar
restaurant software. Windstar links to many POS systems to provide
inventory control and report on anomalies in inventory amounts. These
variances in inventory value can be from theft or lack of portion controls.
The important part of the process is to identify which items have a
significant variance and why. All items will have a slight variance due to
the fact that you are depleting your restaurants inventory by portions sold
and not in even units like boxes or cans.
How you set up your point of sale system has a lot to do with the
accuracy of your inventory tracking. One area that is over looked is the
menu modifiers. Menu modifiers are the choices we give customer to modify a
menu item. Lets look at some simple restaurant menu modifiers and how they
impact your inventory.
A simple modifier like "Add Cheese Slice" when rung up on your POS system
tells the cook to add a slice of cheese to a menu item. This may be
accomplished by setting up two different keys on our pos. One that add a
charge and another that is NC or no charge. If we ring up either of these
keys it will deplete our restaurant inventory by one slice each time. It
will also add the charged to the patrons bill if it is a charge item.
How does this effect of menu cost? The cheese modifier we did not
charge for still had a food cost so our food cost on that item and that sell
would go up. If we choose the key that charged for the slice of cheese the
food cost on that item may increase or decrease of overall food cost for
that item and sale.
A restaurant point of sale
system can only ring up and tally the number of items sold but you really
need a solid restaurant inventory management system to control food cost and
