Read Mealey, L. (2013). How to price your restaurant menu. Available November 21, 2013, at
Assume you are about open a 50-seat restaurant in the central business district of a mid-sized city. There are at least 20 eating places within 3 blocks of your location, including McDonald’s, several mid-priced ethnic restaurants, a brewpub, and 2 establishments with gourmet aspirations. You’ve chosen an “American Family” concept featuring comfort food, homemade pie, and daily soup specials. A common pricing model for restaurants is to price at 3 times food costs. However, upscale restaurants commonly use 2  times food costs and mass market chains tend toward 4 times food costs.

Can you explain these differences?
Where do you see your restaurant’s pricing model? Explain.
