Margin Calculations

Ensure each of your dishes helps you to achieve your profit targets. To calculate the sellout price of a plate to give you your required margin percentage, use the following formulas based on the cost price of the ingredients on the plate:

45% margin = plate cost x 214%

50% margin = plate cost x 235%

55% margin = plate cost x 261%

60% margin = plate cost x 294%

65% margin = plate cost x 336%

70% margin = plate cost x 392%

75% margin = plate cost x 470%
