ChefTec Gets Bakery Up and Running… or Rambling (in this case)
ChefTec foodservice software helps bakery in initial stages
GODEFFROY, NY - August 13, 2002 - What do you get when you mix a farm, an occasional bear and a sweet tooth? The Bear Ramble Farm Bakery. The Bear Ramble Farm, located in Godeffroy, NY is a commercial bakery that focuses on producing handmade, gourmet cookies from organic ingredients. Seth Goldman, David Lawrence and Debra Markowitz, co-owners and bakers, conceptualized the Bear Ramble Farm after living in New York City. According to Goldman, being in the City for a number of years, his partners and he realized the need for fresh air and breathing room. By getting back to basics, simplifying and using all natural ingredients they started living out a dream of running a commercial bakery on a farm in Upstate New York.
"Our focus is to create a delight unlike any other. I have always loved desserts and we have worked tirelessly on these recipes. The quality speaks for itself. Everything is handmade, hand packaged and can even be hand tailored to a customer's needs," said Goldman.
Some of the delights Goldman speaks of is a honey roasted peanut cookie, a take off of the standard peanut butter cookie, ginger hearts, a cookie overflowing with bits of candied ginger, and Earl Grey Wafers, a thin cookie made with serendipitea ™ organic Earl Grey tea and milk.
Goldman became a user of ChefTec even before Bear Ramble Farm opened its doors. In the initial stages of creating the business plan Goldman used ChefTec to cost out and scale all his recipes. Using ChefTec to determine food costs and calculate profit margins is an ideal tool for aspiring foodservice owners. Food costs can be figured out instantly and monitored easily with the input of new invoices.
”ChefTec saved us so much time," commented Goldman. "We could cost out different scenarios instantly and the scaling capability allowed us to help with future projections. Using the software for the business plan was a tremendous help, and having it for running the business is equally as important."
Currently the Bear Ramble Farm is just a bakery, with hopes of becoming an organic farm in the near future. Check back with us at www.culinarysoftware.com for updates.About Bear Ramble Farm
