Looking for a good food-cost tracking program for a small restaurant

    I'm currently using the Inventory Manager through GFS, but it's hosted on a vendor's website, which I don't like.  I'd like to have a simple-to-use inventory/food tracking system, such as ChefTec, that would allow me to source items from multiple recipes.  I'd also like to pull those items into recipes and then track current costing.  i.e., if I'm using "eggs" in a recipe, and I buy "eggs" at $.12 each from Sysco, I want to also buy "eggs" from another vendor at $.10 each and have my recipes updated with the current cost.  The system I am using now does not allow for same items from multiple vendors.

    I am doing weekly inventories and COGS.

    Does anyone have a suggestion about what's worked well for them?
