“Great chefs, creating delicious food, bringing people together, reminding us that life is good.” – Tim Salisbury

In 2007 our Founder, Tim Salisbury, set out to close the gap between the large number of front-of-house systems (with high-level POS options and beverage buying groups) and the small number of back-of-house kitchen systems to help chefs. 

From humble beginnings in Tim’s spare bedroom in Port Melbourne, My Local Foodie began with just a few venues as clients and a modest $13,000 budget for the first Costimator software.

Now, My Local Foodie are proud to say we have hundreds of venues as our clients and we’ve launched V8 of the Costimator software — the benchmark product helping our chefs to buy better, cost better and continually achieve repeatable menu success.



We openly receive and share information so we can all grow and thrive, drama-free.


We have an unrelenting passion to help our clients win. Every time.


We give praise without hesitation, and admit our mistakes as we seek to improve ourselves.

People first

We listen to and champion others. And treat people the way we’d like to be treated.

Our Foodies

Our talented team of Foodies each play a key role when it comes to putting all the My Local Foodie ingredients together.
