Recipe Management

CedarCreek’s Recipe Management System (RMS) automates the process of managing your food cost at a single location or across a portfolio of properties. Previously a manually-intensive and inefficient process, CedarCreek’s RMS automates the process of costing recipes by pulling price data from CedarCreek’s eProcurement catalogs that are continuously updated. Simply link your ingredients to CedarCreek’s comprehensive ingredient library and the system computes nutritional facts, allergen and cost on a recipe, per serving and ingredient level.

A centralized library of recipes is maintained and can be published throughout the property. Chefs can view recipes including nutritional facts, allergens, plating instruction, recipe videos, step by step photo instructions, attach multiple images per recipe and review cost data specific to their region. Property level users with the proper security rights can create their own recipes and ingredients. Chefs can also scale the recipes for banquets, or convert them to/from metric units with a mouse click.

CedarCreek empowers clubs, restaurants and other food service operators with the optics to track their food cost/profitability on a continuous basis allowing organizations to react in real time to changing market conditions. The system also ensures menu items and yields are consistent across a global chain of properties. Additionally, CedarCreek’s RMS offers a comprehensive set of tools to fully leverage the unprecedented cost visibility the platform provides including the ability to model ingredient substitution and other recipe parameter changes with its Recipe ‘What if’ scenarios builder.
