Manage Your Recipes, Maximize Your Profits

If you don’t know what your meals cost, you don’t know whether you’re making money or giving it away. Recipe Manager will help you compare food costs to menu prices so you can make strategic decisions that boost your profitability. Available 24/7 via our online platforms, Recipe Manager is offered exclusively to Gordon Food Service customers.

Customer Testimonials

"Without Recipe Manager, you are playing from behind in terms of understanding your costs, your menu pricing and how your menu items are moving. If you're doing that by hand, which I did for years, you're constantly re-evaluating. This gives you the ability to make adjustments to your menu." ~ Blake Wright, TJ Chumps (Ohio)

Recipe Manager's Unique Features

"A month after putting Recipe Manager in play, we saw a 3% reduction in cost of goods sold right off the bat. Gordon Food Service is one of the greatest companies I've had the pleasure of working work with." ~ Brandon Travis, Fifth Street Brew Pub Co-Op (Ohio)
