Save your Business with Portion Control

Portion control used to be the difference between making money and making a lot of money. Now it is literally the difference between staying in business and going out of business. As profit margins shrink, the importance of portion control is even greater. Note that all of the major pizza chains all use portion control consistently.

  • Portion control will:
  • Save you money by not overusing product
  • Will make your product more consistent
  • Will make it easier to train your staff
  • Allows for growth and scalability of your operation

How does portion control save money?
If the average staff member puts on 1oz of cheese too much and you sell 2,000 pizzas in one month and cheese is $2.50 per pound you can expect to lose $3,840 per year in just cheese!
Cheese $2.50 per pound = .16 per oz = $320 per month in excess cheese x 12 months = $3,840

While cheese is the most common item portioned in a pizzeria, it is important to understand that you need to portion everything, especially with the rising cost of beef, pork and poultry.
