BOTTLING MADE EASY FOR THE HOTEL AND RESTAURANT TRADE
According to the pundits we will be out of water completely by March. So what does a restauranteur do for coffee, tea, soda stream, bottled water?
Ray de Vries is the founder of AIRWATER and pioneer of the atmospheric water industry in Africa. Ray is a qualified hotelier and has owned a number of restaurants and a hotel, so understands the industry well.
Lets take a look at the numbers:
|Cost Price||Bottle||Cap||Label||Electricity||TOTAL||Selling||Gross Profit|
|500ml Plastic Bottles||1.15||.10||.10||.35||1.70||R15||13.30|
|500ml Glass Bottles*||.75||.10||.10||.35||1.25||R20||18.75|
