    Bon$oy

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Want to get Bonsoy in a work...but dont want to get ripped off by suppliers.
    What is the average price for the product? We use around 15L of Vitasoy a week.
    What do cafe owners do when people order a soy milkshake with bonsoy? charge an extra $2 :o

    I actually charge an extra 70c for soy on top of whatever drink it is they may be having. But then again, we use Vitasoy Cafe and not Bonsoy. So I have not answered your question!

    Seen at least one cafe that charges 70c for soy, or $1.20 if you want bonsoy. It was worth it ;)

    Well, I just bought it from them at about $3.30 per litre, so think thats considerably cheaper than the supermarket.

    It is $4.20 from the supermarket. If you cannot do a deal with the supplier then you might consider taking lessons in running a business. I have always been able to negotiate a good price for any products purchased for business purposes. You just have to know how to approach them.
    In regards to Bonsoy, my wife and may others who cannot drink milk actually seek out establishments that serve it. They are happy to pay a premium, as long as it is relevant.
    It is twice the price of good quality milk.
    Good milk (not Pura etc) is $2 per litre (approx). 0.2cents per millilitre, so 200ml in a latte will cost you 40 cents. Bonsoy will cost you 84 cents (if brought from a supermarket).
    Now lets say the coffee costs you $35kg (assuming good quailty product - without volume discounts). This is 3.5cents per gram.
    Single shot = 28cents (allowing 8 grams)
    Double shot = 56 cents (allowing 16 grams).
    Cost of a latte is 68 cents. If you sell it for say $3.50 your markup is roughly 500% (80% GP).
    To maintain this margin for Bonsoy latte you need to charge an extra $1. If this is too much for your customers , aim to buy it like Dennis and charge an extra 50 or 70cents. This will still maintain margin but provide that little bit extra for yor customers.
    Remember most people buying a cup of coffee also do it for the taste, so a quality offering will always win.
    Dont knock the Bonsoy crowd, you will be surprised how good a customer they can be. Especially when they bring along their friends!

    Stan, you neglected to add the cost of the cup and lid, or dishwashing if consumed in-house, crockery, wages, electricity, water, rent, etc.
