💡 Click Export to download an Excel table with products sales report or click Print to print it out.
💡 Food cost is the percentage correlation between cost and sales price.
For example, if you buy juice for $2.5 per litre and sell it for $10 per litre, then Poster will calculate food cost by the formula: food cost/price × 100%
$2,5 / $10 × 100% = 25%
💡 Click on product name to check which products are in high demand and bring you more revenue, and Poster will build a sales diagram.
☝️ Deleted products remain in reports and are highlighted with red color.
Change the order of products on the register to help your waiter find the most popular dishes faster.
