CostGuard Food Costing software does it all: recipe, menu, food and liquor costing; inventory control; nutrition; sales management; interfaces with suppliers, POS, accounting and catering systems.
Prepared foods operation? No problem, CostGuard portions batch and prep recipes easily into serving recipes. Sell alcohol? CostGuard track your pours and your mixers.
CostGuard food costing software instantly costs and re-calculates recipes and menus.
Your ideal cost is optimized because CostGuard suggests selling prices based on global and category targets. Menu engineering reports identify “winners and losers,” and truly help maximize your sales potential and profit.
CostGuard calculates shrinkage (or loss) by major food group, smaller groups, and even by the actual item. ‘Alert’ reports show usage and shrinkage sorted by dollar amounts. Every saved dollar goes directly to your “bottom line.”
Have a multi unit operation and need to do requisitions or transfers? CostGuard does that too.

The newest CostGuard release includes our most popular update request: substitutions.
Let’s say one supplier has 50# sugar, and another has 8×5# bags. Without this feature you’d have to edit EVERY SINGLE RECIPE using this ingredient whenever you switch suppliers!
Now it’s as simple as telling CostGuard to create the substitution and do the repricing.
