Dear Chef,

Having to think about purchasing or upgrading the software that runs your restaurant probably ranks right up there with getting a root canal on your list of things that you’d rather not do today.
 
Software is normally an EXPENSIVE upfront cost while maintenance and upgrades most always rise over time. There are also usually requirements for consistent and expensive labor to manage the data and maintain information.

 

BUT… the cloud based purchasing solution included in your ChefMod MEMBERSHIP INCLUDES:
  • Very manageable costs to get started
  • Our skilled employees who maintain and prepare your data each day
  • Automatic software updates (No need for upgrades!)
  • Convenient access to the system from anywhere (even from a storage freezer)
Our people and systems work hand in hand around the clock to be sure that your information is always ready when you need it.
Let’s have a talk about getting you all set up with exactly what you need.

To Your Continued Success,

Josh Varon

Dear Chef,

 

It’s not too soon to start planning something special for your Valentine’s Day offer.
This year February 14th lands on a Wednesday, which gives you the opportunity to turn a potentially slow night into one of your best sales days of the year.
In addition to your regular menu, we advise our members to offer a creative Prix Fixe for Valentine’s Day. This allows you to:
  • Make the night feel very special for your guests AND helps them quickly decide on what to order.
  • Be sure to offer menu items with high gross profit margins.
  • Include upsell options to the menu for those guests who want to make their special occasion… Extra Special!
ChefMod’s enhanced Group Purchasing Organization provides a network that makes getting all of your special ingredients easy and cost effective.
The sooner you come up with your offer, the sooner you can start promoting it and scooping up reservations for Valentine’s Day.
Call me if you need some help.
Warmly,

Josh Varon

[NEWSFLASH] You can’t eat cash…

Dear Chef,

You can’t eat cash and you can’t deposit “slightly spoiled” food at your local bank.

This is why your restaurant needs to be on top of its game when it comes to purchasing. You want positive cash flow to buy more product and pay your staff.

Don’t leave this up to your chef!  He has about a million other things he needs to focus on.

That’s why we created ChefMod. Your membership includes access to our Enhanced Group Purchasing Organization filled with best-in-class vendors that we’ve been vetting and cultivating for decades. Take your pick of top-quality menu items and supplies at the same pricing you’d get if you had 10x the locations you have now.

Past order history and sales velocity are the best indicators of anticipated usage.  Don’t waste your time or your brainpower trying to determine usage. ChefMod’s advanced yet simple-to-use software easily manages all that for you and analyzes your daily/weekly/monthly purchasing history vs. sales performance  for each item.
This allows you to have the perfect information you’ll need to move forward with all of your smart purchasing decisions.

How much cash is sitting on your shelves?

Talk Soon,

Dear Chef,

The one passion that binds all of us together is our passion for the industry and our love of food.

Some people say there are too many restaurants and not enough customers to go around.

But we say that there’s always room for new ideas,

And we’d love to see more restaurants sharing their vision.

Whether that means great food at affordable prices, or if it’s your dream is to provide an incredible culinary experience where low prices are not the primary motivator for patrons.

Our team at ChefMod brings a rich and diverse set of experiences ranging from corporate sales, retail and wholesale production to customer support, culinary and information technology.

Our primary “Reason For Being” is to create efficiencies throughout your purchasing lifecycle that save you time and lots of money!

ChefMod is purchasing done differently.

Rooting For You,

Josh Varon

Is your P&L misleading you?

Dear Chef,
Your Profit & Loss Statement’s value may be very limited if it contains misleading percentages on food and beverage costs that make it difficult to determine how your restaurant is doing financially. 
 
Even if you receive financial statements from your accountants on a regular basis you still might not be able to really tell how your restaurant is actually performing.
As luck would have it ChefMod offers you a foolproof way  to build up your P&L starting with the very first moments of the purchasing process. Our software captures everything your accountant needs to generate both accurate and relevant financials.
This very same software easily generates sales forecasts and provides the analytics on how you performed that will help you make wicked smart purchasing decisions.
To Your Success,

How to have a great day (when purchasing menu items)…

If you never again had to cull through hundreds of foodservice invoices to find your last cost for items you regularly purchase, would that be a very good day?

Would your day get even better if you had purchasing software that knows what you typically like to order but could also instantly provide alternative choices so you can compare sizes and brands to make the best decision for you?

Instead of doing it the old way (aka the hard way) let me show you how easy it is to plug into our cloud software that securely captures real-time purchasing data and provides up-to-the-minute recipe costs… AUTOMATICALLY.

Know how much you’re going to spend before you actually spend it.

Just login view the ingredients and products you want to see. Submit your order and get on with your day.

 

Can you predict how much you will PROFIT in 2018?

Dear Chef
Do you have a plan to make 2018 better than 2017?

Most all restaurants believe the best way to grow sales and profit is a better or different marketing strategy. But this always ignores the most important part of every restaurant’s business strategy – PROFITTING WHEN YOU PURCHASE.

If you don’t have a plan yet that’s OK! ChefMod will help formulate your strategy according to what’s most important to you. We’ll improve everything from the quality of your relationships with suppliers… to creating automated efficiencies throughout your entire purchasing process.

While marketing and creative promotions can certainly play a role, there is one common characteristic of highly successful restaurants: They consistently purchase superior quality menu items and all supplies at pricing that ensures healthy profits after all operating expenses are accounted for.

This leads to more predictable profits for you in 2018. Just reach out to me and I’ll show you how.
