Restaurant Prep Checklist for Kitchen Staff

Why do you need a Restaurant Prep Checklist?

Most successful restaurants have a  Weekly Prep Checklist that kitchen staff use to prepare for the week. When you enter such kitchens, you will see busy prep cooks checking items off the list as they work. The purpose of such a prep checklist is to ensure the proper quantity of food and appropriate prep procedures are used. 

A prep list acts as a guide to food preparation in the kitchen. A clearly defined checklist will help to decrease overproduction and ensure you meet your targets. By balancing food demand with food supply, it will help kitchen personnel to become more efficient.

Part of ensuring optimal performance in your restaurant is having an inclusive production checklist. This way, you can have control over the amount of food produced and the inventory needed. You ensure that your kitchen staff understands the demands of your production weekly.

With this checklist you can:

  • Stay on par with food costs
