PICCADILLY STANDARDIZES ON RECIPE MANAGER

Piccadilly Restaurants, with corporate offices located in Louisiana, has 130 restaurants located throughout several southern states. Piccadilly upgraded from a competitor system (ChefTec) in early 2002 to Recipe Manager and never looked back. They complained of several limitations with the old system and was looking for alternatives. After several meetings with key Vydata Systems consultants to map out their needs, Piccadilly decided to adopt Recipe Manager as their corporate standard.

The system is currently installed and used at all Piccadilly restaurants along side the Menu Writer product for recipe menu generation.

“Recipe Manager is a fantastic product. It has helped our business track detailed cost and nutrition information better than our previously used program. In addition it has greatly enhanced our ability to quickly distribute detailed recipe information to all of our restaurants!”

Patrick Prudhomme
Vice President – Purchasing
Piccadilly Restaurants LLC

The system has helped Piccadilly provide the nutrition information required by USDA and desired by their customer base. Piccadilly strives for customer satisfaction and prides themselves on an elegant “home cooking” environment. Recently, Piccadilly entered nutrition information generated from Recipe Manager on their website.

Piccadilly Nutritional Information on the Web

Using this data analyzed by Recipe Manager allowed the design of a new “Low Carb Feature” menu for their restaurants.

 

 

 

 

 

The low carb revolution is at the top of its popularity. More and more customers are closely watching their calorie and carbohydrate intake each day. Recipe Manager facilitated the creation of a menu to provide a low-carb list of selections for their calorie counting carb-conscious customers.

At any time, a customer can request that a nutrition label be printed for their meal. Any restaurant employee can use the system to quickly generate the nutritional analysis report or label for any product while the customer waits. Nutrition labels can be printed for any specific item or an entire plate lunch/dinner.

In the future, using Recipe Manager allows Piccadilly to easily add the new up-coming “trans fat” requirement by USDA. Without a system to generate this nutrition data, Piccadilly would have to do a manual analysis on hundreds of recipes. This would be a very costly endeavor. However, Piccadilly is on-board with Recipe Manager which will drastically facilitate this transition! Adding new elements to a nutrition label is as easy as clicking and dragging a new element onto the label.

The Piccadilly IT department adopted a data “push” strategy to update the database at each restaurant location automatically in order to centrally manage recipe data from the home office. The individual restaurants are only allowed to have a specific set of local menu variations while the corporate recipe list remains protected in a “read only” mode. After modifications are made to recipes at the home office, data is sent to all individual sites where Recipe Manager automatically synchronizes to keep information current without any local user intervention. This allows the restaurant site databases to remain updated at all times directly from the home office without the local staff even touching it! Recipe Manager provided Piccadilly Cafeterias with a seamless and simple integration into their current IT infrastructure.

Piccadilly tracks a number of custom fields that their old system (ChefTec) would not allow. For example, they track allergens for each recipe which include ingredients that may be a concern to people with severe allergy problems.

Piccadilly has recently moved to a new technology infrastructure by implementing Positouch Point-of-Sale software at all locations. They will be working on an interface from Recipe Manager to this system in the near future.
