The Theoretical Item Cost By Item report lists the menu items for a location by POS sale department and displays the quantity sold, the selling price before and after comps/promos, and the costs per recipe (multiplied by the number sold) that the menu item is linked to. This report can be accessed from the Reports module or from the Recipes module under the ‘Reports’ tab.
