Busboy

       Mac OS

Busboy is single user recipe costing and management application for the Mac aimed at small restaurants, bakeries and delicatessens.

Busboy helps you keep on top of recipe and menu costings so you can ensure you are not selling any of your products at a loss. Once you have created a recipe and set your desired gross profit and tax rate for that specific recipe, all you need to do is keep the list of ingredients, packaging and production costs updated and Busboy will keep the recommended selling prices up to date, as well as showing you the difference between the recommended selling price and your current selling price.

Recipes
