<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, helvetica">quote:</font><HR>As promised, Soda costs:

I have used the cup, lid and syrup prices to reach these costs. I have omitted the CO2 and ice costs which I am sure amount to less than $.02 per serving. There is also labor to consider but that just makes my brain hurt.

Small (22oz) Cup Cost $0.05, Lid Cost $0.04, Syrup costs $0.09, Total Cost $0.18, Price Sold $2.75, Profit $2.57.

Medium (32oz) Cup Cost $0.10, Lid Cost $0.06, Syrup costs $0.12, Total Cost $0.28, Price Sold $3.25, Profit $2.97.

Large (44oz) Cup Cost $0.16, Lid Cost $0.08, Syrup costs $0.17, Total Cost $0.41, Price Sold $3.75, Profit $3.34.

Assumptions:

We have determined that if you fill the cup half full of ice, the ice will occupy 1/4 of the volume. So soda will occupy 3/4 the available volume.

22 oz cup contains 16 oz of soda
32 oz cup contains 24 oz of soda
44 oz cup contains 32 oz of soda

5 gallons of syrup makes 30 gallons of soda. The mix is 5 to 1. So 30 gallons of soda = 7680 oz. We pay $39.85 for a 5 gallon box of soda.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Profit margin on Bottled Soda at best is 400% vs. Fountain Soda 1,000%. I think the ice machine is making us money!

Don't worry about what you don't know....I am still having trouble with the flaked ice concept!
