Recipes & Component Bundling for Coffee Shops
Thrive by Shopventory tracks complex inventory from bakery recipes to the lids for every cup of coffee in real-time
Pretty much every product in a coffee shop can be bundled for simplified inventory management, from cappuccinos to pastries baked in-house. Both bundles and recipes help coffee shop owners track inventory for components throughout the day instead of relying on nightly cycle counts for accurate inventory.
Simplify Ingredient And Component Tracking
Create, prepare, and bake recipes that keep your customers coming back for more, such as homemade seasonal syrups. By using linked quantities, accurately track ingredient and component inventory levels so you never have to guess when to reorder.
Benefits of Bundles & Recipes in a Cafe
Types of Product Bundling for Coffee Shops
Pure bundling combines multiple component level products or ingredients in a new way that customers can only purchase as a bundle. This could mean the shot of espresso and milk for a latte.
Customers can’t purchase the components separately, like the milk, but can purchase them in their final product form.
Mixed bundling refers to products that have components combined together to form a unique product. However, customers can also purchase the individual components separately.
For a coffee shop, curated gift baskets are a great example. Customers can purchase a pack of coffee, coffee mug, and a bakery item in a gift or they can buy a coffee mug right off the shelf.
Recipes take individual ingredients, such as chocolate chips and flour for homemade muffins, and turn them into a final component.
Like pure bundles, customers cannot purchase the ingredients separately. Recipes are especially helpful for final products that you will not want to be broken back into ingredients, like a batch of muffins.
Bundles & Recipes In Thrive
Using an inventory management software, like Thrive, is essential for creating and managing bundles and recipes. Most POS systems and e-commerce platforms don’t have this functionality built-in and require an additional platform.
Thrive bundles and recipes will take your inventory and cost-tracking to the next level by tying inventory quantities together automatically. Costs and quantities are automatically calculated in real-time so you have accurate inventory counts throughout the day. Stop guessing how many cups of coffee you have or wasting time on nightly cycle counts to know that you have enough lids for tomorrow.
