Quick, easy tool helps operators squeeze more profit per plate

Windsor Foods’ Smartphone App Is First Free Tool For Restaurant Food Cost Calculation

Windsor Foods has launched the industry’s first free smartphone app to help restaurant operators calculate food costs and other key profit-building functions. The digital breakthrough provides any foodservice operator the ability to quickly evaluate and compare menu options based on food costs and desired profitability.

“We know that food costs are the key to the equation in determining menu pricing and overall profitability, and Windsor Foods is the first-to-market with a free smartphone app that makes food cost calculating easy,” says Brad Kumin, Windsor Foods’ Director of Marketing. “This new menu decision-maker’s tool makes it easier for calculations that are critical to business success.”

Available to any operator via Apple’s iTunes App Store, Windsor Foods’ Profit Calculator enables users to input cost-per-case, unit of measure, pieces per case and other variables to calculate their real food cost and allows them to input menu prices for their desired food cost percentage.

Additional features of the app enable users to e-mail, text, save or print the calculation. “This is an extraordinary tool for multi-unit chain executives who need to communicate and share information with others within their organization on mission-critical decisions,” Kumin explains. “It is likewise a great tool for independent operators and non-commercial foodservice directors. We’re happy to offer this free tool, and I’m convinced that Windsor Foods products will perform very well in their calculations in delivering deliciously profitable menu items for their operation.”

“At Windsor, we are not only innovative and on-trend in the products that we offer, but in the resources that we offer to make busy operators successful in their own business.”

Numerous studies on the growth of smartphone users and the growth of applications built for them indicate that smartphones now represent about 60 percent of all cellular phones in use in the United States. The new Windsor Foods app was developed to operate on Apple iPhones and iPads. To download the free app, visit iTune's App Store and search ‘Windsor Foods’ to locate and download the application to your smartphone.
