Adding a Product

Take control of your business and create products with sufficient profit margins; margins that allow you to grow and scale your business.


  • Product: The combination of your recipe + items + packaging

  • Add-On: Ingredients added on to your items (i.e. sprinkles, coating, nuts, etc)

  • Item: An item is a portion of your recipe. For example, one batch of cookie dough makes 10 cookies, which equals 10 items. A single recipe can have multiple items that vary in size and/or flavor.

This article will show you how to add your products and connect them to your recipes, items, and packaging to get your products' cost and profit.
