When Home Restaurant approached SimpleOrder, they needed a tool to help them organize purchases from their suppliers so they could make the smartest purchasing decisions. They needed a platform that was transparent, in order to facilitate communication between key staff members and to have clear understanding of their purchases and inventory at all times. “Mainly the reason why we started to use SimpleOrder was because we wanted to simplify ordering with most of our vendors, control pricing, control food costs, inventory, we wanted to simplify everything with just one company.”
SimpleOrder helped Home Restaurant stay on top of their food costs in order to maintain their purchases within their budget, so that they could keep their menu prices on point. “What the reality is that the market can, prices can jump from $1-$10 and if we are not able to track that we can be losing money. At the end of the month, it’s not just hundreds of dollars, it’s thousands of dollars. The fact that SimpleOrder can help has modify those changes right away when they are going to skyrocket, that can help us make the proper adjustments.” Having a solid kitchen management tool to help them with all their paperwork, pricing, and purchasing, has saved them hours and hours of time that they are now able to spend on strengthening their marketing, training their staff, and coming up with new recipes for the kitchen. ” It gives us more free time to focus on other things, mainly to focus on our kitchen.”
