Menu costing is one key element of great kitchen management and is often overlooked. Whether you are a caterer, restaurant or cafe owner, executive chef or run a commercial kitchen, you will need to cost each menu item that is produced from your kitchen. From seasoned professionals right through to apprentices and new starters in the hospitality industry, this simple to use tool gives you the ability to accurately cost your menu.

iChef Mobile provides you with the ability to enter ingredients, their costs and by adjusting your food cost margin, you can determine sale price and expected profit. Each costing is saved for later review or modification when ingredient costs change allowing you to ensure your bottom line is sustained. iChef Mobile also provides you with the ability to email your menu costing to other people such as owners, kitchen managers, line chefs, sous chefs, etc.

Ratings and Reviews

Almost exactly what I wanted


The only things that would improve this app are:
1) If you could put in your available volume of product in and the amount you paid for it so you don't have to work out the unit price.
2) if it would keep a list of ingredients so you don't have to re-enter them each recipe, it would be better if you could just choose from a list of already entered ingredients

Great for small cafe


Tried a couple of apps and this one's simple and easy to use. Handy as you can work out true profit after gst. Would really like to see upgrades to costings summary e.g. Listed in alphabetical order or a search feature for items. Now I've got heaps of items in there they can be hard to find!

Tiresome ingredient re-entry


This looks like a nice, simple app, but unfortunately is too simple. It needs to have the facility where one can select from ingredients previously entered for other recipes, rather than having to enter the ingredient name, cost and weight/unit measurements separately every time you want to add it to a menu item. I very quickly got sick of having to re-enter eggs, butter and flour for every recipe.
