Do you charge for delivery? I have heard of biz that don't charge within a 25 mile radius, but then start charging (or something along those lines).
What are your policies?
Abso-friken-lutely. AND I charge a flat rate WITHIN a 25 mile radius. After you go out of 25 miles, theres a per mile fee, BOTH ways. Usually everyone is within 25 miles, but it's for just in case. The fee is not just to cover gas, but for wear & tear on my car, as well as my time.
May I ask what you charge?
Oh, I'm sorry, I did forget that part. $50. I would have to charge a $1.50 a mile after that.
I charge delivery by the per slice basis. They can buy the cake cash and carry, or they can pay the delivered cake charge. That way if its a big cake I'm paid more. It also includes setup, so it works for me.
Basic delivery is $50. Mostly for the intown cakes. If it's literally with 4 blocks (2 venues) the charge is $40. After I cross the county lines, it's based on the size of the cake + the time it will take to set up + the distance. The longer I'm way from my kitchen to set up a big or complex cake, the more time I'm away from the location where I make money.
