Assignment 2 – Question 3 (2 marks)

Maria’s Restaurant is interested in increasing their lunch sales and would like to introduce a “grab-n-go” lunch feature. Customers will be able to see what the special “grab-n-go” lunch special is through twitter at 10:30am each morning and then pick up the lunch special in a bag and eat it where ever they choose. Maria’s restaurant is considering selling the lunches at \$16.49 which has a variable cost of \$4.26. How many customers would have to buy the lunch “grab-n-go” feature each day for the restaurant to break even if their fixed costs are \$31,728. (2 marks)

# of customers= Fixed Cost+ Profit/ CR

= \$31,728+ 0/ (1- 4.26/16.49)

= \$31,728/ 0.74
