We are Koust

Koust is a management control tool designed for helping independent restaurants to manage card improvement and margin control processes.

In the beginning

"Before being a restaurant owner, I was a computer developer, so I developed my own tools for my restaurant. Today I combine these two skills to offer my services to restaurant professionals and to all food trades. »

Jean-Luc LE GOFF, founder of Koust.

The idea was born

stock restaurant management
It all started in Brélès at the end of Finistère. Jean-Luc LE GOFF has been a restaurant owner for more than twenty years. He could not find a tool to manage his restaurant in an optimal way.


The best team



Restaurant owner for 23 years
"Faced with the difficulty of controlling costs and the domination of suppliers, I devised a tool adapted to improve the gross margin.
This is how Koust was born in the heart of the kitchens, to improve the quality and profits of the restaurant.


"As a computer enthusiast, I am in charge of the development of our mobile application as well as the elaboration of new functionalities"


"I participated in the development of the first version of Koust with Jean-Luc.
I enjoy learning and progressing through new challenges.
I'm here to code what seems complicated into simple and fun solutions. »


"I take care of customer care and guide users in learning Koust. Attentive to the customer's needs, I am also in charge of responding to the various requests."


"I am in charge of marketing, organising the company's events and ensuring the graphic creation of communication media.


"I am responsible for helping and supporting Koust users to optimise the management of their establishments.

A dynamic innovative

An online application accessible from any screen connected to the Internet.

A first version allows you to compare and control the purchase prices of raw materials, to calculate orders and the cost price of recipes

The second version is a controlling tool: it compares purchases with sales. Koust is connected to the cash register and allows to detect stock discrepancies as well as wastage.

The third version is a sales analysis tool: it highlights the popularity of dishes and their contribution to the margin in order to propose an offer that is relevant to the restaurant owner and his customers.
