had this on the catering forum as I am a caterer and only belong to this club I use to be gm's of many companies so here it is:This is off topic but it's driving me nuts. I belong to a private club and our steward who is responsible for all F/b is running terrible numbers everytime I bring it up at a board meeting which we had last night again I get shot down. They put their head in the sand. we are running 38% for Bev consitently and 48% for food we serve grill food 6 days a week and friday fish which is mostly deep fried perch, haddock and grouper. This is not gorumet by any means They are priced high average ticket is 15.00pp and we are not getting too much food as I see i compared to other fish frys in the area and they are charging less. My feeling is it is going out the back door of course our board would NEVER believe that. Our ave. bottle of wine our cost is 7.00 we sell it for 5.00 a glass so as you can see we should make money? You have all been there what would you say?? I would start with weekly inventories with a bord member present . Oh also no POS system just a cash register. Thanks I would love to hear what you think? last month food was 77% excuse was a bill came in late from month before?
