I'm hoping to do a two week rotation schedule, that will be roughly as follows, with three meals a week available on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursdays.
The prices I'm using here are experimental. I'm aiming to keep a high percentage of my ingredients locally produced, GMO free and/or organically grown, because I love working with high quality ingredients and I believe there are enough folks here who will want to pay extra to help make this happen! I have been told by restaurant owners that it's about impossible to make a decent profit using the best materials, but I want to see if Its possible with this structure I'm creating.
I believe these prices and portion sizes will make my work load and shopping expenses all balance out, but it's really just a guess on my part. If I'm not making well over minimum wage in return for all the materials and labor involved, I will have to raise the prices.
Tips are also welcome and appreciated, and will help support me in adding more fun menu items! I'm also hoping as this business catches on that I will gain enough income to eventually move to a bigger kitchen, buy more needed kitchenware, and begin offering more baked treats! And cooking classes!
With all that said, right now I'm offering an introductory deal of $10/plate for new customers!
