About Recipe Cost Calculator
Recipe Cost Calculator began life in 2012 as an internal tool developed for a wholesale bakery.
In 2010 my wife and I co-founded Kitchening & Co. and I took on
the role of Chief Operating Officer (among a dozen other things). After
spending countless hours in Excel and scouring the internet to find a decent piece of recipe costing
software, I came up empty-handed. Everything was either hard to use, ugly, expensive, desktop-based or
Windows only, and I had no interest in using any of it.
Given my career and background in software development and consulting,
I decided I would build a tool I actually enjoyed using. And so, in 2012 Recipe Cost Calculator was born, and
I realized that countless other small food businesses (restaurants, catering, baking, retail -- whatever) could
benefit from having Recipe Cost Calculator as an affordable and powerful tool, and so I released it as a
subscription service in early 2013.
It's now 10 years later and Recipe Cost Calculator has seen literally hundreds
of new features developed to help businesses of all shapes and sizes, from pre-revenue startups to
nation-wide restaurant chains, to multi-million dollar manufacturing operations, to mom-and-pop bakers
at the local market, and everyone in between.
In 2021 we sold Kitchening & Co. in order to spend more time with our kids, and to have more time
building features for Recipe Cost Calculator -- to help your business be more successful.
Wishing you success in all your endeavours!
