For those who work in the culinary area...

What/who is the person that does the numbers/money stuff for a restaurant? Things like: Ordering, budget, payroll, costs, how much to charge for dishes, etc.? My husband said that is the kitchen manager's job, but I thought the executive or head chef did that stuff. Or is it the restaurant manager?
Also, most job postings I have seen for kitchen manager have said "Kitchen manager/chef" Is it a combined job?
I am interested in the numbers stuff, but I don't really want to be a chef.
Thanks in advance :)

  • I think it depends on if your ordering for FOH or BOH

    FOH it is probably the restaurant manager

    BOH it is probably the Exec Chef who does the food ordering and that sort of thing

  • It all depends on the restaurant. I've worked at different places and some were the chef and some were the management.
