Entering Menu Item Cost
This tutorial will show how to enter your menu cost information in the Menu Item Maintenance program. Menu cost information may now be required by the TDA as additional data pertaining to the standard menu item pricing. The menu item cost should be considered in two parts. The cost entered for reimbursable meals in item numbers one thru fourteen, both for breakfast and lunch, will be the average cost per meal for each of the items. The cost entered for ala carte items will be the actual cost of these items. Cost data and totals are captured on the Menu Item Transaction Report which may be accessed by this menu path -- FS > 16 > 09.
