How to optimize inventory?
« on: August 07, 2022, 12:46:14 PM »
After working for some restaurants, whose management was very penny-wise, pound-foolish, there are a few things I've learned.

There's a law of diminished returns when it comes to price vs. quality.  With some foods, there's a big jump in quality buying the more expensive version.  But other foods, you won't taste the difference.  Min-maxing correctly is important.  Because investing too much on one ingredient, could mean you have to be too cheap on another.  Blind taste tests between cheaper and more expensive can help because marketing, aesthetics and price may subconsciously influence our decisions.

How frequently an item sells matters too.  If something sells a lot, and many people come into contact with it, you want to use good quality ingredients.  But investing too much money into an ingredient that's niche and rarely ordered can be a bigger loss.

If you have any tips or observations, be sure to let me know.
