Recipes & Ingredient Component Bundling for Restaurants
Thrive by Shopventory tracks complex inventory from scratch-made recipes to cocktail ingredients in real-time
Pretty much everything in a restaurant or food service business can be bundled, from food truck tacos to quick-service to-go supplies. Both bundles and recipes help restaurant 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 cook recipes that keep your customers coming back for more, such as homemade bread. 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 Restaurant
Types of Product Bundling for Restaurants
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 dough, sauce, and cheese for pizza.
Customers can’t purchase the components separately, like the sauce, 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 restaurant, combos are a great example. Customers can order a combo plate with a hamburger and fries, or they can order a side of fries separately.
Recipes take individual ingredients, such as eggs and flour for homemade pasta, 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 pasta dough.
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 oil you have or wasting time on nightly cycle counts to know that you have enough chicken for the dinner rush tomorrow.
