  • Restaurant Business - Advice from Paula Deen

    I was reading the Paula Deen book "It ain't all about the cooking," and I saw some advice I wanted to share with you all if you are thinking of opening your own restaurant one day.

    She said that food costs should be no more than 1/3 of the gross receipts.

    Other costs such as overhead, rent, utilities, salaries, insurance, equipment, pots, pans and repairs should be no more than 1/3 of the gross receipts.

    Lastly profit should be 1/3 of the gross receipts.

    So to sum that up.

    33 1/3 % - food cost
    33 1/3 % - overhead
    33 1/3 % - profit

    I hope this helps you out in your business planning.

    Read the book for more info.
