<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Profitability is a sort of interest rate, which conveys the
meaning that the summation of a series of net profit present value is larger
than that you could obtain elsewhere in a certain period of
time. Id the investment return is larger than that you coul obtain elsewhere, you can confortably be at ease for your business is profitable</font></font><br>

Menu is a list of dishes whose purpose is to generate profit
through the customer's satisfaction. The excellence of the
service rendered and the quality of the food offered is with
no doubt a very important objective. However, the most
important objective of all is to reach the planed profit goal
throuth the customer's satisfaction. </font></font><font color="#275078" size="3"><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2"><br>

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2" color="#275078"><b>Forecasted
or historical cost?</b><br>
<br> You
should learn how to figure out your menu's cost, profit and sale
price well before the ingredients get the pot, instead of restricting yourself to copy your competitor's price. Such attitude may endanger your restaurant's health.<br>
<br>
<br>
<b>IS MY RESTAURANT PROFITABLE?<br>
<br>
</b>There are two things you must be aware of before you
come out to the conclusion on whether your restaurant is
profitable or not:</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2" color="#275078"><img src="img/seta.gif" width="10" height="14"> The
knowledge of the profit margin for every course
sold;</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2" color="#275078"><img src="img/seta.gif" width="10" height="14"> The
internal rate of return (IRR) of your restaurant as a whole.</font></p>
<p><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" color="#275078">Internal
rate of return (IRR) is the interest rate type that holds the
meaning that a series of profit flows in actual values pays
off the invested capital.</font></p>
<p><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" color="#275078">If
If your restaurant's IRR is larger than the yield you could
obtain elsewhere, then feel happy for your restaurant's
profitability is acceptable.<br>
<br>
Incidentally, the profitability analysis is the last step in a
process that begins with the cost calculation and ends with the
sale price. The profitability analysis intends to mean two
things:</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2" color="#275078"><img src="img/seta.gif" width="10" height="14"> that
is the right time to pullout or remain in the restaurant
business;</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2" color="#275078"><img src="img/seta.gif" width="10" height="14"> the
time to make an in depth review of your current
operations.</font></p>
