Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I played around with odoo 9 restaurant modules and tried to use bill of materials in order to have some recipes, that could allow for ingredient control or with that stock management. Unfortunately there seems to be no way to automatically start a manufacturing process in the meaning, that an ingredient is reduced from stock, any time a meal (for example pizza) is sold via pos terminal. I guess that is also the reason, why there is actually not a single success story of an restaurant or place serving immediately or prepared or assembled products (and not just stored products like in retail) until now. Please prove that I am wrong or stop promoting this irritating news, that there is some integration.
As long as you do not run a McDonalds, integrated stock management for ingredients is most probably the last problem you need to have covered to run a restaurant. Possible Exception: when you serve wines and spirits by the glass. So this is for sure not the reason for missing restaurant success stories, there are issues of higher priority, such as for example how to present your menu and winelist on the website with different sales units (starter, main dish, beverage quantities), different sales channels and prices (served in the restaurant, home delivery, room service), legal requirements (food regulations), display of opening hours (hot meals, restaurant, bar) etc. which need to be addressed first, be it by customization or by developing additional features. Or features like occasionally joining tables in the table management.
However, it is possible to automatically launch manufacturing orders from POS, Ray Carnes has provided a solution in this post: https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/launch-automatic-mrp-orders-after-selling-from-pos-59046
Second step would be the automatic execution of manufacturing orders. If this should not be possible by means of proper customizing, I'm sure it would need only manageable developing efforts to achieve this goal.
