Order ingredients with Fillet for Chefs

Fillet for Chefs app’s new ordering feature lets 3,000 food businesses order from their suppliers without fax, voicemail, or clipboards.

The app’s new ordering feature allows the user to enter their order, email the order to their supplier, and receive notification when the supplier confirms or declines the order. The supplier will receive the order by email, view order details in a web dashboard, and then will confirm or decline the order. This new ordering feature also integrates with Fillet’s existing recipe costing and inventory count features. The user can make orders based on their previously inputted recipe ingredients, or add new ones. The suppliers’ contact information can also be saved for easy future access.

With the growing food trend of sourcing local, many restaurants are looking for the variety and quality of products that small traditional suppliers are able to provide. With Fillet, users can build their own supply channel and maintain it with ease and accuracy. Many small traditional suppliers still rely pen and paper to record orders. Join us in disrupting this tradition by taking your kitchen into the mobile age.

Start by opening the app and then tap Orders.

Step 1. Enter your order

Add the things that you need to your order. We will group them by seller for you. When you are finished just tap Send!

  1. Hello,

    We are a family run locally sourced, vegan, CCOF Organic, cold pressed juice company in San Diego and we will be opening a cafe this summer. We get a lot of our product from many small local farms. Is this software conducive to our needs?

    1. Hi Kirsten,

      Glad to meet you! Thank you for taking a look at Fillet! I think you will find many parts of our platform useful to your business from costing out your cold pressed juice menu to placing ingredient orders with small local farms. It seems that your company takes freshness, quality, and origin of your ingredients very seriously and this is something that we support and stand for *very* strongly. I would be more than happy to walk you through the app and answer any questions that you or your teammates might have. Please feel free to email me at kirill at getfillet.com!

      Kind regards,
      Kirill

  2. First, let me say I am so excited about your app, and am loving all the possibilities

    I am trying to use the order feature for the first time. I don’t understand why I am not able to select which vendor I want to order from for a given ingredient. For example, I have Organic beets that are offered through 3 different vendors at 3 different prices, which I have entered under Ingredients. However, when I try to add Beets to my order list, it assumes I want the first vendor that was entered and I am unable to modify the vendor. Also, not able to leave the order in the middle and come back to it later.

    Also, it allows you to add an ingredient during the Order phase, but not to enter the price.

    1. Hi Sandra,

      It’s great to hear from you! Thank you for your kind words. We are really excited to have you and your team onboard and for you to start ordering with Fillet! Please see our notes about your questions below.

      I am trying to use the order feature for the first time. I don’t understand why I am not able to select which vendor I want to order from for a given ingredient.

      We are addressing this in the upcoming update. You will be able to select the vendor for the ingredient and change vendors for each ingredient!

      Also, not able to leave the order in the middle and come back to it later.

      We are adding a way to save orders so that you don’t lose them in case you need to come back to them later.

      Also, it allows you to add an ingredient during the Order phase, but not to enter the price.

      In the upcoming update you will be able to set the price (or omit it altogether) for each ingredient!

      Thank you very much for the amazing feedback and suggestions! We sincerely appreciate hearing them and look forward to serving you and your team.

  3. Thank you, for such a concise and helpful application. It is absolutely wonderful.

    I would like to highlight a few problems/bugs that I encountered.

    1). It will not save “sodium” & “cholesterol” values in nutritional information.

    2). Under density whilst specifying conversion, it will not you toggle between mass, volume & abstract menu.

    1. Dear Syed,

      It is great to hear from you! Thank you so much for your kind words and your support. They really mean the world to our team here at Fillet and we sincerely appreciate hearing you feedback.

      1). It will not save “sodium” & “cholesterol” values in nutritional information.

      Thank you for reporting this issue. We are aware of this and are working on a broader fix that will overhaul the UI and functionality behind the nutritional features in Fillet. We hope to get this fix to you as soon as possible and would love to hear your feedback on it when we are in the design and planning phase.

      2). Under density whilst specifying conversion, it will not you toggle between mass, volume & abstract menu.

      Thank you for bringing this to our attention – we will make this form clearer. At the moment you can only specify the density conversion by teaching Fillet to convert from mass to volume, or from volume to mass. In the future we will definitely add support for specifying conversion using abstract units on one or both sides of the conversion. This feature will also be able to rely on an upcoming feature where you will be able to teach the app to convert between different abstract units (see this link for more information about this).

      On behalf of our team, please accept our many thanks for being with us. We are excitedly looking forward to serving you and your kitchen!

  4. Dear Fillet

    We are a group og 6 restaurants in Sydney and one of our chefs has been trailing out your APP for costings, calculations and stock takes.
    We’re interested in a joint account if possible and would like to hear a bit about price and setup.
    Please contact me directly for further comunication.

    1. Dear Kasper,

      Thank you very much for your comment! It’s great to hear from you. We are deeply honoured to learn that Fillet is used by one of your chefs at Applejack. I just emailed you with answers to your questions. Looking forward to learning more about how we can make Fillet best fit your team’s needs!

      1. Kirill,

        I too have a group of caffes. I am the F&B director for all and want to be able to add or change recipes,etc. Basically, I have a master enterprise account while individial stores still have their own order guides and inventories. Will you please send me the same info you sent Kasper? Thanks

    1. Hi Hailey,

      Thank you very much for your question. It is great to hear from you! Unfortunately, we do not integrate with Stripe directly at this time but support data import and export using CSV file format. We are working on adding direct Stripe integration in the future. Please let me know if you have any other questions that I can answer. I’m always happy to help!

      Kind regards,

  5. Is there a step by step guide or instructions somewhere? I don’t get how this app works. How do I know if a purveyor is participating? What would be cool is if you had a resource that would allow you to plug in the ingredient you’re looking for and it would essentially price check it for you with participating vendors near you by zip code. Just a thought.
