Pricing your cakes, cupcakes, and candy apples can be pretty tricky. You could take a pricing class to learn how to calculate your cost, but what about those who struggle with numbers and just don't know where to start? Or...what if you need to get a quote back to a customer quickly? Let Sweet Fest do the work for you!
Do you struggle with how much to charge for your cakes, cupcakes and sweet treats? You’re not alone! Pricing is the number one struggle in the Sweet Community, and it can be an even bigger challenge for (1) those who struggle with numbers or (2) those who don't have the time or patience do do it themselves.
There are online apps, classes and calculators out there to help, but what's the point in using those tools if you're still not confident in the calculations? Not to mention, most pricing classes don't use your actual numbers and may not take into consideration your actual ingredient costs, your recipe, or your market.
That's why you should just save time and a lot of pain/suffering...and let Sweet Fest do the work for you! #judgementFreeZone
Allow us to research your market, calculate your cost, and other expenses, and then report back with a custom assessment using your actual cost and give you guidance & a recommended price for your menu item(s).
Upon purchasing a Pricing Assessment, you will receive a required questionnaire that will help us calculate the price of your menu item(s) including labor. Please complete this form within 5 business days of receipt. Within 1-3 business days of form submission, you will receive a link to schedule a follow-up meeting to discuss your assessment.
Failure to submit the initial questionnaire within 5 business days will result in a cancellation and partial refund of 50%. If you need your assessment sooner than 7 business days, please email us directly for availability. *Rush fees may apply.*
Once your calculations are complete, you will receive a link to schedule a follow-up assessment. In this assessment, you will receive:
- documentation of your recipe calculations,
- a walkthrough of the calculations, and
- guidance on a recommended price.
You will also be able to ask questions about the assessment during your follow-up meeting.
