DOWNLOAD: Food Cost Yield Calculator

The Food Cost Yield Calculator is a flexible Microsoft Excel® set of spreadsheets designed to aid restaurant owners, chefs, and managers in determining the true cost of the raw products used to produce menu items.

Shrinkage, waste and trim are significant factors that can negatively impact your bottom line. If you cut your own steaks, seafood, or poultry, or offer cooked meats such as prime rib, smoked brisket, ribs, roast beef or pulled pork, then it is a certainty that the true cost per pound of the finished product will be significantly greater the original purchase price.

This easy to use tool automatically calculates the adjusted true cost of each menu ingredient by determining the yield percentage of usable product after trim, shrinkage, and waste have been factored in.



Summary of features & benefits:

  • Great for determining the true cost of the steaks you are cutting.

  • Includes several sample yield tests for different products. 

  • Easily tracks shrinkage of cooked products.

  • Helps to achieve more accurate food and menu costing.


This template is available in Microsoft Excel ® (XLS) file format. You must have Microsoft Excel installed on your computer to use this form.
