How to manage restaurant inventory and purchasing from branch

Managing restaurant can be very tedious job especially for restaurant inventory management. To allow restaurant make profit, you need to manage food cost effectively through controlling the purchasing of ingredients from supplier. Lot’s of restaurant don’t have big space to keep the food, so you will only order from supplier when the stock is running low, that’s one of the method to control freshness of the food. This will lead you to re-order from supplier daily or 2 days once.


In current practice, lot’s of restaurant will perform a daily check on stock balance so they aware what to reorder for next day. Staff will write down the balance and quantity to order and snap shot the whole ordering sheet to supplier or purchaser to proceed for ordering. This is the cheaper and easier way to perform but it’s not cost effective as we know staff may not have time to perform stock check daily and they may just plug the figure from the air.
