Restaurant Magic’s Management Suite brings food management, inventory management, and enterprise reporting to restaurants worldwide. The Restaurant Magic team has been managing the labor and food costs for Cousins Subs and their management solution has resulted in significant cost savings. In 2018, Cousins Submarines was able to increase their net income and also facilitate employee pay increases. 

“We basically couldn’t keep our food costs in control, we were probably losing 1% to 2% off our bottom line in food cost variance and now, thanks to Restaurant Magic, we’ve actually brought it down to our target range,” said Jason Westhoff, President of Cousins Subs restaurant chain. “Last year between the labor and cost of sales savings, our brand size of 100 stores saved $250,000 to our bottom line”
