The definitive foodservice cost control resource—now updated and revised to reflect today's hospitality environment

Good cost controls are essential for any foodservice business. Among other benefits, being able to accurately analyze and manage expenses allows for effective planning and negotiating with suppliers, gives confidence to financial backers, and—crucially—leads to profits that are both sustainable and maximized.

Principles of Food, Beverage, and Labor Cost Controls, Ninth Edition offers the definitive all-in-one guide to effectively implementing key cost control functions, processes, and concepts in a foodservice setting. Covering such areas as cost/volume/profit analysis, menu analysis, food sales control, employee training, and performance standards, this resource gives readers a practical toolbox that's ready for use in culinary and hospitality classrooms, professional training, and foodservice operations.

Now in its Ninth Edition, this classic text has been revised to reflect changes in the industry. Updates and new features include:

  • Enhanced coverage throughout of technology used in foodservice cost control
  • A separate chapter on menu engineering and analysis
  • Lists of useful Web sites
  • CD-ROM containing Excel spreadsheets for all the problems in the book as well as additional exercises

Filled with step-by-step guidance, Principles of Food, Beverage, and Labor Cost Controls, Ninth Edition gives students and working foodservice managers an unparalleled guide to management tools and best practices.
