Controlling Your Costs in the Restaurant/Food Industry

Please join our panel of food industry experts for some peer networking with refreshments, followed by panel discussion on industry topics such as: • How do you control food portions? • What best practices do you follow for managing your inventory? • How do you achieve proper staffing during peak and off-peak times? • What policies do you recommend for getting the most value from your suppliers? • Suggestions for minimizing spoilage? • What are the critical metrics that you as an owner/manager track?
