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

Recipe flow

You can maintain a centralized library of your recipes and publish them to your properties with a mouse click. Your Chefs can view your recipes including nutritional facts, allergens, plating instruction and more, complete with pictures, video and cost data specific to their region. With proper security rights property level users 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.

BirchStreet empowers enterprise hotels, restaurants and other food service operators to see and 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, BirchStreet’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.
