------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------                                                              To Calculate Net Per Bag:

- Decide the vending size you want to give to your customers from the chart above. Multiply the bag size in ounces by the number of vends per ounce.

Example: I want to vend 1/3 oz. portions of M&Ms so I will multiply my bag size by the opposite of my fraction. 56 oz. X 3 = 168 servings per bag.

I charge $0.25 per serving so multiply 168 by $0.25 and I get $42 Gross. Now just take away my cost of product ($8.50) and I am left with $33.50 Net.

* You will also need to take into account other expenses such as gas, machine repairs, etc. But this is an easy way to see if you are getting the most out of your candy or if you should stop vending a certain type.

Just know that closing wheels on a machine you have located already may offend repeat customers and dramatically decrease the number of vends per day. Then again, I'm far stingier with my money than my product because getting 6 PMM would leave me feeling cheated.
