We use an Icee product that is precisely what you describe. We serve Strawberry/Banana Smoothee and Frozen Mocha Cappuccino. It is our least profitable product. Most items in a concession stand are marked up by 300%. This is the only way to make any money at the stand. Our two products are sent to us whole and donâ€™t require dilution. There are real strawberries and bananas in the mix and real coffee. Those that buy it usually drink the entire drink. I think they like it.
The frozen drinks are 3.46% of our total unit sales. They represent 4.60% of total dollar sales.
Here is where I demonstrate why it is so costly.
The cup costs $.10 per cup. (Solo clear)
The lid costs $.05 per lid.
The product is $1.39 per serving. (Each serving is 160z.)
Total cost is $1.55 per drink.
We sell our 16 oz for $3.50, which is 2.27-x unit cost. If we charged 3-x unit cost we would have to sell the drink for $4.75 and that is too much. A juice bar will make you a custom 22 oz smothee for $4.00.
Before signing up with a product have the sales man provide you with a profit analysis sheet. We decided to get this product even after we studied the product analysis sheet.
