How the Choice Suite can Benefit your Catering Business:

The key to your profitability is a selling price that achieves your profit target. You can only accomplish this WITH ACCURATE FOOD COSTS. CostGuard ALWAYS calculates recipes at your current costs, so you’re assured of accuracy.

Standardize recipes using unlimited ingredients and/or sub-recipes. Stylized entry of your recipe method that can include multi-media.

Instant “pre-cost” information updated automatically based on your most current food costs.

Converts recipes to larger and smaller yields and also converts units intelligently. This would convert teaspoons to cups so you would never see 48 teaspoons. Using metric weights? No problem, CostGuard has built in metric conversions.

CostGuard has unlimited ‘nesting’ of recipes within recipes, so it’s very fast and easy to create and customize banquet and event menus. Menus can be converted (scaled) to the guest count with a single keystroke. You can print the menu for your clients without pricing.

Scale your menu to your guest count. Create consolidated production sheets with a single keystroke. The same items and quantities can be added automatically to the Shopping Cart for instant replenishment.
