How many pounds of candy do I need for 100 guests?
A general rule of thumb is to supply around ¼ to ½ pound of candy for each guest. That translates to 25 to 50 pounds of candy for every 100 guests. This takes into account the people who might take a little more and the guests who will take less. The size of your take-home containers may influence this amount.
How much does a candy buffet cost?
Most candy buffet services ask customers how many guests their event will have and then determine how many candies and other elements will be needed. Most pros base package pricing on the number of guests too. Industry experts peg the average cost per guest at $4–$7.
Do candy shops make money?
How does a candy store make money? Candy store customers visit the store and select items for purchase. The store takes a profit off each sale. Some candy stores partner with other small, local businesses who wish to maintain an inventory of the candy shop’s treats.
What is the markup on candy?
As a general rule, vendors multiply the candy’s wholesale price by 1.75 rounding to the nearest nickel, representing a markup of 75 percent over the wholesale price. This is a lower profit margin than many other vending-machine items, which motivates vendors to keep the candy options in machines as limited as possible.
Can you sell candy from your home?
In California, you may not sell indirectly outside of your own county, unless the county where you want to sell has specifically stated that they will allow indirect sales of cottage food products. To get a Class B permit, your kitchen must pass an annual physical inspection.
How much is a candy bar for a wedding?
Costs for a candy bar can add up pretty fast, but a little upfront planning can save you a lot of money in the long run. One site I stumbled across estimated most candy bars run roughly $5 per guest. FIVE DOLLARS! If you have 100+ guests, that’s easily over $500 which I’d say is a pretty large chunk of change.
