The Profitability Report is based on the Profit and Loss report and combines monthly Costs and Sales to calculate a chosen Location's estimated Profit. This report combines actual data for the month up to the current day and the forecasted amount, which is based on the actual Sales over the last 8 weeks, for the remaining days to construct this Location's bottom line. 


Comparing the Average Weekly Sales, Spend Per Guest, and Weekly Guest Count against calculated Profitability Targets help to guide decision-making processes around restaurant operations and to show if a Restaurant Location is on the path to profitability.


Note: If expenses are more than Sales, optimize Labor and COGS to ensure your Organization becomes profitable. View the following resources to determine the best way to analyze and alter your current spending:
