Principles of Food, Beverage, and Labor Cost Controls, Ninth Edition
Control: Process used by managers to direct, regulate and restrain the actions of people so that the established goals of an enterprise may be achieved Cost Control: Process used by managers to regulate costs and guard against excessive costs Standards:Rules or measures established for making comparisons and judgments Standard cost: Cost of goods and services identified, approved and accepted by management
Standard procedures: Procedures that have been established as the correct methods, routines and techniques for day-to-day operations Budget: Realistic expression of management’s goals and objectives expressed in financial terms Control system: Collection of interrelated and interdependent control techniques and procedures in use in a given food and beverage operation
The cost/benefit ratio is the relationship between the costs incurred in instituting and maintaining a single control or control system, and the benefits or savings derived by doing so. Benefits must always exceed costs. Before instituting any new procedures for control, management should first determine that the anticipated savings will be greater than the cost of the new procedures.

The Budget The budget, or financial plan, will detail the operational direction of your unit and your expected financial results. The budget should not be a static document. It should be modified and fine-tuned as managerial accounting presents data about sales and costs that affect the direction of the overall operation.
Just as the P&L tells you about your past performance, the budget is developed to help you achieve your future goals. Budgeted Revenue - Budgeted Expense = Budgeted Profit To prepare the budget and stay within it assures you predetermined profit levels. The effective foodservice operator builds his or her budget, monitors it closely, modifies it when necessary, and achieves the desired results.
1. Prior period operating results 2. Examine the external environment to assess any conditions that could affect sales volume in the coming year 3. Review any planned changes in the operation that would affect sales volume 4. Determine the nature and extent of changes in cost levels 5. Have the projections for sales, costs and profits approved by management
Monitoring the Budget In general, the budget should be monitored in each of the following three areas: 1. Revenue 2. Expense 3. Profit
