Ok I'm sure there are a hundred threads covering this topic, but I couldn't find one. I want to charge for my treat platters this year. I usually do 6 types of cookies, fudge, choc. pretzels.

Ok here is the question... should I charge by the pound , by the dozen or by the person? If I charge by the pound, how many serving do I get in a pound? HELP I don't have much hair left and it's going fast this time of year...

Personally, I'd charge by the dozen or another number. By the pound is too tricky and I think that customers would be able to figure out how many to order if they have a concrete number in their mind instead of just a weight amount.

If you charge by the pound, the first thing they're going to ask is "how many people will that feed?" so you might as well skip the middle-man-question and do it per piece/per person.

Charge by the piece or by the dozen. Definitely.
