We had it nearly all ready ahead of time and essentially warmed and served on site. We charged right at $10 / head. Profit was in the 45% range after ALL costs.
Another questions, how does one figure the ratio of dogs to burgers at an event? Would you need to provide 100% of each? Say 600 people, then 600 dogs plus 600 burgers? (It doesn't seem right, but just for example sake...)
or would you figure a % of each? Say 60% Burgers and 60% dogs.
