Food and Beverage Cost Control (TUCO)

arena4finance is proud to partner with The University Caterers Organisation (TUCO), to offer this one day skills development event to all those involved with the management of food and beverage operations, from head chefs to food and beverage controllers.

TUCO Academy

‘Cost Control for F&B Operations’ has the purpose of assisting all those involved with catering operations in the effective management and control of food costs, which will have a direct impact on profitability.

The course is designed to help delegates understand pricing methods and the control of gross profit, as well as assisting them with the effective execution of daily financial tasks such as ordering, purchasing and gross profit calculation. Since staffing costs tend to be a significant expense alongside food costs in food and beverage establishments, the course will also cover wage and salary controls.

Upcoming dates:

7th February 2018
