Controlling Costs in Foodservice, authored by an industry executive, addresses the areas that can impact an operation's bottom line, such as menu planning, food and beverage purchasing, inventory management, labor, and facilities.

Useful formulas and common foodservice conversions are included, as well as a basic math review.
