What do you pay for tri-tip? With a 6" roll you need 8 oz so Divide by 2 add the cost of the bun and multiply that by 4 and that's per sammy. Rough idea anyway.

You may not have though of this but you will ned insurance to do this or should have it. Also may need some HD inspections unless you use their kitchen for prep.

use bollios from a mexican market 5 for a buck over here at el super (formerly gigante) and they are baked fresh every hour. We charge $5 per sandwich with 3 healthy slices. everybody loves them, got no complaints only compliments.

What are worth? Charge what you are worth or stay out of the business. I can't stress this enough, if you need the money that is one thing, if not charge appropriately. You aren't competing with restaurants because if you were you would be losing money, again those guys are already cooking so to toss on a few more pounds of meat is nothing.

How much are you gonna sell per day? How many days will you be providing this service? How many hours per day? Will this tri-tip be served fresh off the grill? What if they want more than just tri-tip?

We can't tell you what to charge. Figure out what your time is worth and go from there. Don't do the job because you want to come here and say you are in the business. I can tell you that it costs a few bucks to get into the business and you need to be agressive and smart to stay in the business. Consider the cost of wear and tear on your equipment, your body and all the other stuff you never think of when you decide to get in the business.

Now tell me what are you worth per hour?

just to clear it up..we are BBQin at a Local Bar n Grill...we were approached to run there kitchen because they dident want anything to do with kitchen anymore.. the owners are concentrating on just the bar... we worked our an arrangement were we run kitchen and pay a monthly rent..so we are selling our food and bar snacks this will help get my name out and bring more people in the bar... because they never BBQued for being a Bar n Gril... just are "comming Soon" flyers are getting a good response
