76 burgers a day and even at $5 a pop only translates to $380 a day. Tough to compete with McDonalds which sells 76 in a half hour I'm guessing.
Iím not going to make a habit of coming in here during business hours, but I simply HAD to reply to this oneÖ

#1 Ė Iím not anywhere near a McDonalds. Or a Burger King. Or a Wendyís.
#2 Ė Iím not in the same competition as McDonalds. I sell FOOD at my place. My burgers are made from fresh beef, no frozen 1/8 lb patties, no pink slime, no additives, no ground up parts & cartilage. My patties are actually VISIBLE once the bun is in place. My place is for Burger lovers. Itís not designed to mass produce human-chow style burgers & synthetic beef-flavored fries to the masses like McDonalds & quite frankly, I donít WANT that customer base either. I want people who know a good burger when they eat one. McDonalds is nowhere near a good burger. Iím not even sure if that qualifies as meatÖ

76 Burgers a day @$6.00 each =$456.00
Each burger COSTS me $1.50. Profit margin -$4.50x76 =$342.00

120 orders of Fries a day @$2.50 each =$300.00
Each order of fries COSTS me $0.50. Profit margin -$2.00x120 =$240.00

53 Foot-long Hotdogs @$3.50 each =$185.50
Each Hotdog COSTS me $1.25. Profit margin -$2.25x$119.25

120 Large Drinks a day @$2.50 each =$300.00
Each drink INCLUDING cup COSTS me $1.00. Profit margin -$1.50x120 =$180.00

Profit Margin Average per day =$881.25. Or approximately $6200 per week.
Minus Rent, Utilities & Payroll = approximately $2400 per week.
Gross weekly profit =$3800.00 per week, average.

NOT INLCUDING sales of Chicken Patties (22 @$5.00), Sausage Patties (16 @$5.00), Veggie Burgers (24 @$5.00), Orders of Onion Rings (57 @ 3.50), Other size Drinks including bottled soda & water, Milkshakes. I also offer Grilled Cheese Sandwiches & BLTís & Iím working on adding Wings to the menu tooÖ

Thanx Harley. I appreciate your support.

I really wish I was able to share the location with you guys, but there are just too many jealous, bitter, envious assholes out there who'd go out of their way to ruin things for me. I guarantee you, if my location leaked out, it wouldn't be a week before somebody in here tried to bury me with a bad online review or show up to make a scene at my place. It's pathetic...

The remake premiered in 1976. That was chronologically in between the middle east oil embargoes of 1974 & 1979. No oil shortages or long lines for gasoline...

Like I said, I was ripped by both Yankee and Mets fans for my spring training predictions.
Its obvious now to all the Met hack and stalker is jealous and feels irrelevent like some little kid at a party desperate for attention.
so far fu youre met predictions look pretty good todate..Mets are certainly better than the Red Sox the record show! As of today they are over .500....Good Job!

With 31 win to date the mets are in good position to win more than the 75 games I predicted....

Interesting...

You sell Hot Dogs @$3.75 & cost $1.25. Is there a reason your margin is less than 3X when your other food items are at least 4X?...

That may be true, but it's still early. There are still many people who live / work in the area who don't even know it's there, and plenty who do know, but haven't tried it yet. Give it time. If it's good, word will spread, and he'll be booming.
I hope he has a few "healthy" items on the menu.....for those pains in the azzez who don't eat red meat, like veggie burgers, and my personal favorite, which is a burger with EVERYTHING.....except the meat!
Nah, screw the health foods and just give me a good high calorie burger. Thats why I go to a fast food joint....but i rarely go. I'm more a turkey sandwich guy myself. I do enjoy Zorns and Pizza take however.

Anytime I have a fast food burger is when I'm traveling on an interstate highway.

But thats me.

You missed the point. Gasoline shortages were a reality in the 70's. The movie premiered in 76 but the idea sprung 2 years earlier when developing the script. Its not a reality today gasoline shortages. You ever see Planet of the Apes with Charlton Heston?

Hot Dogs were an after-thought, to tell the truth. Plus, there are two Hot Dog trucks right down the road from me near the beach, they sell their Dogs for $2.75 each. I wanted to try to stay somewhere in their price range while still making a profit...

Of course.

If I were him I would make sure momma got the address asap. At least 3-5 burgers sold a day more and 2-3 milkshakes and 2 fries. That is only lunch. Even if he is in carolina.

Understood...

Would increasing the price a quarter compromise the ability to sell?...
