The complete, practical guide to managing the business side of a restaurant

The success of a restaurant depends not only on great food and outstanding service, but also on sound financial management. Restaurant Financial Basics gives restaurant managers the financial knowledge and tools they need to understand, analyze, and report their restaurant's finances accurately-and use that data to help run the business effectively.

Written clearly and with a minimum of jargon, this down-to-earth guide focuses on the crucial information busy managers must know-for both day-to-day operations and long-term planning. It covers the full range of crucial basic accounting principles, including cash flow, pricing, budgeting, cost control, equipment accounting, and cash and revenue control. It completely demystifies the two most important financial statements for a restaurant business: the balance sheet and the income statement. Throughout, Restaurant Financial Basics offers valuable practical tools, including:
* Manager's Briefs that summarize critical accounting principles and practices
* Ready-to-use forms for record-keeping and accounting
* Easy checklists to help improve operations and planning
* Web site resources for fast, up-to-date access to further information

The Restaurant Basics Series provides restaurant owners and managers with expert advice and practical guidance on critical issues in restaurant operation and management. Written by leading authorities in their respective areas of expertise, these easy-to-use guides offer instant access to authoritative information on every aspect of the restaurant business and every type of restaurant-independent, chain, or franchise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Restaurant Financial Basics March 18 2009
By Willy Huang - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read a few titles in regard to restauarnt management and start up to fine tune my restaurant management know how to better my odds at this cut throat industry. After going thorugh this book, it gave some really good insight, and more importantly knowing the numbers really helped provide substance for the strategy and management mantra from other reading. This is more like a textbook, so it is not for everyone, but for what the authors set out to achieve - Restaurant Finacial Basic it is pretty spot on.
To improve, I will suggest some simple but intersting case study to supplement, this will really engage the reader and tied up the teaching in the book nicely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! April 24 2011
By Junabelle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a culinary student who is working in the industry. Being in culinary school also requires management courses other than cooking classes so any helpful textbook that relates to the real world helps. I am not that great with math and this book breaks down profit and loss statements. (Formulas and all) It reads like a text book because well, it's a text book! (It's easy to follow) I definitely plan on using the book as a reference as a future manager/owner in the industry.
