Thanks, and I have crunched the numbers, to include clam shells, sauce, forks, etc. Looks like I can put a "plate" together for about $1.65 on the high side (pork loin, less for everything else). So, at the 3x rule, that puts us at $4.95. Plus, we will have soda and water, at a high profit margin. Understanding that we need to factor in roughly $200 overall for underlying costs (foil, spices, gas), I guess we are still in a decent profit margin? My goal is 1000 plates. Promoted through a number of listservs, OBR, and possibly the Washington Post. This will be a learning experience, but want to do good for OBR.
