Do you find yourself asking "how much should I charge"? Are you often afraid to quote a price because your customer might say it's "too high" and walk away? Do you spend hours filling orders, but find yourself wondering where the money went? Do you feel over worked and under paid in your sweets business? Well..you're not alone!
There are thousands of bakers, cakers and sweet makers like yourself who struggle with calculating a price and quoting it with confidence on a daily basis. That's why we've designed the perfect training to help you overcome your struggles with pricing and boost your confidence when submitting quotes to potential customers.
When you don't understand your cost, you run the risk of undercharging and losing money. When you don't charge correctly for your work, you basically pay your customer to do business with you, and that is NOT a good way to run a business. In fact, bad pricing is the FASTEST way to put yourself out of business.
Pricing your sweets shouldn't be a guessing game. In reality, there are several methods for coming up with a price for your sweet creations. This class was created to help you calculate a cost, nail down your menu prices, and remove "guess work" as your only option for setting a price.
Join Chef Amanda Schonberg and Sweet Business Coach Cyd Mitchell for a training on how to appropriately price your sweets. This training will give both the culinary perspective AND an accounting/finance "Bakenomics" approach to calculating cost and setting a price. That's right. There is not just one method for setting your menu prices. This training will provide multiple pricing methods which you can later choose from to price items in your sweet business.
This training will not only teach you to calculate a price and place a correct value on your work, but it will also empower you to price your sweets with confidence. If you're ready to learn how to set a price, understand production costs, and not bend to clients with "champaign wishes and beer budgets," then sign up TODAY!
