soda costs breakdown Wed, 02/8/06 8:10 AM (permalink)
have any of you actually sat down and did a break down on cost of a glass of soda? i think it sill alarm you. i did yesterday, and thought it best to post my results for all to see and compare....

5 gallon bib coke cost 50.00 ( this part will vary slightly)
5 gallons = 640ounces = 7.8c/ounce syrup

22 ounce glass of soda(my serving size) contains appr 15 oz liquid.
according to the brix cup.....5/1 ratio means 3 oz syrup, 12 oz co2
so.......... 3 oz syrup = .23c
ice, co2 = .02
lid/cup/straw = .05 ( i broke down each cost)
----
totalcost for glass of soda = .30
(average)add one refill..........23
---
.53
53 divided by 125(price charged)% ==== 42.4% food cost!!!

think twice before allowing employees to have free soda!

ok...now lets break down iced tea........

96 tea bags cost 22.75
.24 per bag
4 bags per batch = .25c( yeilds 2.5 gallon)
10 lb sugar = 4.29(sams)
2 cups = one pound, 4 cups in one batch= .43x2=.86c
.86
+.96
-----
1.82 cost per 2.5 gallon batch

(one glass) tea .08
lid/strw/cup/ice .06
-----
.14
refill .08
------
.24c 19.2% food cost

thats it.....
i hope this helps some of you.....
