Episode # 58 How to Tell if your Menu is Printing Money or Losing Money

In my last episode #57 we calculated your Profit per Dish in every category.  Now armed with this powerful information, the Product Mix Report (PMIX) is the “key” that shows your restaurant’s volume of sales for every product on the menu.  All you do is plug in a particular date range (at least a month or two) and see if your Most Profitable Items are your restaurant’s Biggest Sellers… If Not, time to do some menu tweaking to maximize your restaurant profits!
