One-half pan of beans had roughly 25 4oz servings. If your cost of ingredients is $22.50 for that pan you need to seel that pan for $67.50 minimum so the per person price for a 4oz serving will be at least $2.70 for beans. That would be on the high end of a reasonable price in my area. In my market, I'd reduce my cost to where I could get that price down to a $2 side unless they were so good people raved over them and didn't mind paying the extra.

Looks to me like maybe $12.50 per adult plate plus all the beer you can drink and they clean up the mess and drive you home.

If you're going to be legal by the time this rolls around, then at least get case price from Sam's ($1.60 in Bluffton)...AND set up a wholesale account and don't pay the sales tax. That will help you some. Still, those prices are extremely high. I'm paying $1.20 for fresh, and could save probably another .10-.15 with frozen. The market is going up, and likely will not stop.
