Benefits of Recipe Management
MarketMan's Cookbook feature is an intuitive, user-friendly recipe database that contains the most reliable repository of all of your restaurant's recipes, updated in real-time. No more worries about spillage on printed paper—the Cookbook is easily located across devices within the platform, so multiple staff members can access it wherever, whenever. Manually listing unit quantities, ingredients, and their units of measurement is a time-consuming, monotonous process. The Cookbook takes the headache out of recipe-building while also factoring in essential variables like food waste, shrinkage, prime cost, and more.

Train your staff with ease
Training your staff to use the Cookbook feature is simple, so you won't miss fumbling over stained or outdated printed recipes in the kitchen. Employees can discover recipes using Cookbook's responsive search system. For example, if they search "Chorizo Risotto," they'll find the ingredients (including the quantity and unit type of each ingredient), portion size, preparation procedure, cook time, and any other information they need to make the dish. You also have the option to upload photos of each completed menu item for reference.
Consistent menu items, guaranteed quality
Exceed customer expectations, encourage repeat visits, and serve up consistent deliciousness every time. The Cookbook is accessible anywhere, so your chefs can make each menu item in the exact same way every time. Customers can always rely on the same delicious dish from your menu. The cloud-based Cookbook helps create, organize, access, and share standardized recipes with all of your staff across all of your locations. You can input exact, repeatable recipes down to the weight of a teaspoon of oil with the help of a database of inventory items and ingredients and their data points. By building your recipe database in MarketMan, you can continuously track your sales, inventory, and invoices for each recipe. Easily link recipes with sales through your point-of-sale integration. Savvy restaurateurs looking to level up will love diving into in-depth reports on sales forecasting and profitability, too.
MarketMan integrates with all major food distributors, POS systems and accounting software to help you build a unique ecosystem tailored to your specific needs.
