For over 10 years, CTB AND CO. have been transforming the hospitality industry with innovative technology and applications that reduce data-entry, minimise costs and maximise profits.

Founder and CEO, Andrew Briese, trained as a chef and worked in the hospitality industry for over 20 years. He came to realise there was a severe lack of digital applications to assist hospitality venues in developing their business structures and finances. His approach: develop solutions and tools from a chef’s perspective that provide a streamlined workflow with complete financial and operational transparency.

Cooking the Books (CTB) was built to modernise kitchen processes and help owners make profitable and effective decisions for their food businesses. The program allows users to generate recipe and ingredient costs, reduce waste, produce restaurant-savvy reports, plan recipe cards and build cost-effective menus.

Our platform brings together all your inventory, recipes, POS sales and costs for your restaurant. It takes away guesswork and human-error, leaving your kitchen with only accurate and valuable insights for costing out a menu, doing a tender on meat or veg, evaluating the costs of a recipe or doing a menu analysis.

Ordering and receiving

Take the stress out of purchasing with our streamlined digital invoicing and payment system. Create Scheduled Orders or use our Whiteboard feature to organise and send multiple orders in bulk and save time with Predictive Ordering.

Restaurant food inventory list management

Organise and monitor food inventory across all venues and locations down the smallest unit. Receive accurate valuations of your stock on hand and know what stock was ordered since you last took inventory.

Recipe and menu planning

We use the most comprehensive menu and recipe builder so you can track the exact measurements, wastage, nutritional values and costs of each plate you create. Recipe cards can be shared and saved in the cloud for dish consistency and training across all venues.

For all business sizes and models

We offer F&B management for chefs, bakers, managers, owners and caterers. Our platform scales to any sized business from food trucks, cafes and ghost kitchens to restaurants, hotels and multi-level hospitality groups.
