Success Story: Trios Sports Club
- October 14, 2021
- Chef Spotlight
Trios Sports Club in Cranbourne, VIC have seen big improvements to their kitchen operation since working with My Local Foodie.
They’ve reduced their cogs from 38% down to a consistent 30%. Plus saved a tonne of time on their admin too, thanks to our streamlined kitchen management software.
We interviewed Head Chef, Atish Chaudhuri to find out how he’s transformed his food operation.
MLF: YOUR COGS WERE AT 38% WHEN YOU FIRST STARTED WORKING WITH US. THEY’RE NOW AT 30%. WHAT WERE THE 3 BIGGEST CHANGES YOU MADE TO GET SUCH A GREAT RESULT?
ATISH: Portion control. Yield testing all our recipes accurately and engineer them so our plate costs are highly profitable.
Intelligent buying. We choose to buy quality products at the right price, and aren’t afraid to shop around and jump on good deals from the FoodieBuy group.
Accurate stocktaking. Thanks to a great count system we now see exactly what our stock holdings are to minimise over ordering and wastage.
MLF: HOW DID MY LOCAL FOODIE HELP YOU IMPLEMENT THESE CHANGES?
ATISH: My Local Foodie gave me the tools to be able to do all of these things. Before we joined, we were still using excel sheets for our menus. Now we have accurate menus and recipes costed. And much quicker stocktakes too.
The software gives me concise and precise information to help me make decisions. And the buying group boosts my purchasing power.
