I have a customer that wants the little tull wrapped bundles of jordon candy covered almonds for 250 servings.

I cost it out at about $144.00 total from online places.

How much do you think I should charge for that service. I was thinking 1.25 each. = 312.00 retial. Profit 168.00. Worth the time??? or should I increase the price?

Anyone know the going rate? I think most people just make them themselves.

I'd charge about $2.50 per person. Are you using the tulle bags, or the circle which you will then have to tie with a ribbon?

Yes. It will be the basic tull bag and ribbon and a tag with their name.

If they bought those at the store with a bag and ribbon but no personalization they'd probably be at least $3 each, so you'd be way undercharging if you only charge $1.25 each!

That is an oldie. As I remember, the last time I used Jordan almonds, it took me about 3 hours to do 150 pieces. Most of that was trying to get an equal amt of the colors in each bag. Also used the circle/ribbon method. Huge PITA, would rather make petit fours..LOL!
