Ever wondered how sales translate into profits for a hospitality business? Using a typical bill of a pint of beer and a burger as a starting point, this training session will breakdown the common associated costs right down to profits.
By the end of this training session with Alison Wong, Founder of White Doe Consulting, you will have an improved understanding of the fixed and variable costs that go into each sale and therefore the profit margins of a typical hospitality business. Furthermore, you will understand why profit margins are not consistent with each sale, the tipping point for greater profits as well as how daily decisions impact a business’ profit levels.
