I'm with ya BigBelly and I feel like my time is worth more just like you are saying. What has me scratching my head is that it seems like the posts on this thread as a majority say I am charging too cheap. Yet all the research that I did before going in to business 4 years ago along with what I have seen here and in books I have read is that the food cost (food ingredients only) should be 25-33% of the cost of the meal and cost x 3 gets you in the ball park. If this is incorrect or an outdated formula, is there another that you all use that is better? Or what formula do you use to say $7-9 for a sandwich? Just trying to learn here, so please don't take this wrong. If I can get by with charging more I sure believe what I am doing is worth it.
