Q: What is the pricing percentage I should add to items on the menu?

Posted on: January 22nd, 2016

Firstly, there is no standard percentage you should add to menu items.

Secondly, you need to:

  • Calculate all overheads (e.g. wages, superannuation, tax, insurance etc.)
  • Know the cost of goods (e.g. what you pay for one bottle of water; what you pay for each ingredient in a recipe)
  • And then you can calculate the gross profit percentage using a formula. See the setting menu prices fact sheet for further information.
