Volume and Price Question
Hi all. The non-profit I founded last year is doing a fundraising cook on Saturday, our first. We will have Pulled Pork, Pork Loin Sandwiches, Brats and hotdogs, along with slaw chips and sides. All my product will come from Costco. All food will be exchanged for donations, and the proceeds transferred to Operation BBQ Relief to support their Moore, OK response.
I have pulled the online menus from local BBQ places in the DC area. A pulled pork sandwich and sometimes a side prices from $8.99 to $12.00. We are planning a suggested minimum donation of $7 a plate (either pulled pork sandwich, pork loin sandwich, or Brat with slaw and chips). For those who cater, and understanding markets vary, does that sound reasonable? Both organizations are all volunteer, so no personnel costs. Thanks!
