How profitable is it selling slush? We have made some big claims on some of our website pages regarding the big profits achievable when selling slush drinks. So let’s look at the detail which will allow you to assess how much profit your business can make.
We’ve used the national average sell price for the popular 9oz (270ml) drink selling for £1.20, then subtracted the VAT at £0.20 and the cost of the drink at £0.14. This is the actual net profit per drink which is £0.86.
We’ve then based these numbers on 6 days trading each week, 9 months of the year (234 days per year). Daily sales are an average; you may sell less when the weather is cooler but significantly more during the summer.
The 9oz cost per drink is 14p which includes the slush syrup, branded slush cup and straw spoon.
