Prime Rib of Pork...
Take the rib section
(consisting of 11 ribs) out of a 14/17 pork loin, gently marinate it
with approximately 12% of a lightly seasoned marinate to keep it moist,
cut off the back bone so you can cut between the ribs, and you have a
menu item that guarantees a great eating experience.
When you slice between
the ribs you have a portion size of 8 to 9 ounces at a cost of around
$1.80. Add a potato, vegetable and salad for an additional $.50
cents and you have a total plate cost of only $2.30. Here’s the
best part: with a menu price of only $7.95 the food cost is less than
30% and the gross profit is $5.65 per plate.
It gets better.
Sell 200 per week (10,000 per year) for a total gross sales
$79,500. Cost $23,000. Total Gross Profit $56,500.
This is an example of the power of a carefully selected menu item that
will give the restaurant customer a good value at gross profit that can
really make a difference. Even with a dollar off special, it will
still return a very nice gross profit.
