Everything has its price, even gelato
A gelato maker is first of all an entrepreneur. Before starting work in the workshop and selling the gelato to the public, decide on the sales price. How can you calculate that?
In general, to set a sales price that will guarantee income, three types of cost need to be taken into consideration.
Primary costs are direct costs, i.e. for specific goods or services.
Examples include the purchase of raw materials and staff salaries.
Utility (or variable) costs are more difficult to calculate, but very important. Production-related costs not directly linked to single products are divided up using objective indicators and added to direct costs.
For example, work out how much electricity you use for each production cycle and break down the cost per kilo of gelato.
To calculate the overall cost, you need to add in costs related to general expenses, such as taxes, commercial and financial expenses, etc., to the two items above.
So you need to consider various aspects when you calculate the sales price for gelato. The price per kilo must be higher than the sum of the direct and variable costs, so that you get a profit margin. When you open a gelato shop, you definitely need some time to evaluate your initial progress, after which you can correct things by changing prices or improving production.
