Managing inventory in a pizzeria is no simple task. Inventory accounts for the second largest percentage of a restaurant’s costs, yet according to the State of Small Business Report, 39% of small business owners still manage inventory using pen, paper and spreadsheets. Some don’t even take the time to manage their inventory at all.
Take a minute to step into the shoes of your employees. Working once or twice a week part-time, and starting part way through the day, your staff don’t necessarily know how long prepped food has been sitting. Only proper communication can ensure they know what ingredients are good to use, and which ones aren’t.
Print make/ready/discard (MRD) slips from your POS system to label each prep item with the date it was made, when it is ready to be used, and when it needs to be discarded.
