Tips for improving profit margin
A little goes a long way. When working with your proteins, consider cuts such as streaky bacon. That can easily be added cheaply to a sauce for a pasta or gnocchi dish to create a meat dish on the menu. Then of course, you can simply swap the bacon out to make it vegetarian so you have multiple options available.
How you describe the dish on your menu does half the job for you. Say things like “with fresh rustic garlic sourdough” which really makes a dish sound quality, but the reality is that it’s just adding a cost effective garlic bread to the side of the dish. Easy win!
