Check Out More clickBACON Success Stories

Dan has more money in the bank!

Like many restaurant owners and operators, Dan didn’t really know what to do to get the results he wanted in his restaurant. By implementing the systems and processes he learned from Ryan and that are also built into clickBACON, Dan now has the “know how” to change his business. He can tweak things to make more money. And he knows how to save. He can also identify problems. Not on a monthly basis with a P&L but on a daily basis. THE RESULT: He sees where the problems are happening and can fix them. Immediately!

They went from “hobbyists” to successful business owners in less than a year!

Michelle and Mariah Savage had a passion for food and a passion for serving people. What they didn’t have was the operations “know how” to successfully run a restaurant. They were trying to run their restaurant using old numbers from a P&L Statement. They knew there had to be a better way! Michelle and Mariah started using clickBACON to track their restaurant’s financials and hone their checklists and prep sheets. They are now getting real-time, actionable data in a very easy-to-understand format. THE RESULT: Their Prime Cost dropped from 87% to 57% in under a year!

He only spends 3-5 minutes per day on his restaurant’s financials!

Like most people, COVID threw a major curveball at the Acorn Grill. But Brandon Knoepfle didn’t let that stop him from having his best year ever in 2020! He decided that instead of sitting back and doing nothing, he was going to show up every day and put the work in to improve his systems, processes, and procedures. And that included no more inventory taking! Once he started keeping things simple and stopped overanalyzing, the results started coming. THE RESULT: Brandon now spends only 3-5 minutes per day entering numbers into clickBACON and lets the program do the work for him!

Real-time, actionable data fuels his business!

Moving from the corporate world to the restaurant business, Jason Udrija, operations manager of Pizza Love, saw a big gap in process and data. Being the numbers person that he is, Jason knows that having the data of your business at your fingertips is vital to the success of any restaurant. The most exciting part of using clickBACON for Jason is the ability to see the big picture. THE RESULT: Jason has all of the data and components he needs to look 1, 5 or 10 years down the road and to SCALE to 2, 5, or even 10 locations.

We have been using BACON since its Beta Launch. The owner of the restaurant handles the bookkeeping through QuickBooks, but we had no way to track the most important data daily at the restaurant level. Now in just a couple minutes a day, I am able to bring actionable data to our managers and we are in total control of the budget. Sales are up over 20% this year and profits are following in line because we are actively controlling our prime cost daily, weekly and monthly!

Over the past few years, I have gone from simple spreadsheets, to complex spreadsheets, to more and more spreadsheets and then eventually starting looking for a software solution to help improve my numbers at our wine bistro tasting lounge. Well after trying different software platforms we went from kind of knowing our numbers to NOT knowing our numbers. All the software we tried claimed to be simple was was far too complex. I am a small restaurant operator, I don’t have a huge staff, I don’t have time to manage software. We switched to BACON a couple months back and it truly is simple, but far more powerful than we imagined it could be. It has exactly what we need with nothing more or less. You can tell it was designed and built by somebody who has operated restaurants, knows the business and knows how to get the results we all want… more profit and less complexity. Thanks Ryan, BACON is really helping us out!

A couple months ago I decided to give BACON a try in my 8,000 sq. ft. Italian restaurant. I had been using the same inventory software for years and I knew there had to be a better. In fact we used an inventory system, accounting system and multiple spreadsheets but the data was still a bit confusing and old by the time I tied it all together. To be honest, Ryan had been telling me it does not need to be so hard and that I needed better budgeting tools.

Now with BACON I am able to get all my operational data in one place. I can easily see where I am compared to my budget daily so I can take action on it and get ahead of my numbers.

We have been running two restaurants for the past 20 years. Tracking prime cost has always been a struggle. Every another month, we would stop because the spreadsheet was too complicated. Everybody in this business has to know that tracking prime cost is essential for the bottom line, without those numbers, it’s a matter of time before you hit a wall. It will happen, you just don’t know when. BACON is the best investment we have made. It pays itself in the first couple of days of every month. It also allows your contributors to consult on a daily basis the critical number saving time for everybody. The only thing discouraging me in all of this is that BACON did not exist before!
