'''A.''' Yeah, 300$ is very realistic - that's like 8 drinks per day sold at a $1.2 profit. Our initial calculations were without drinks too, because we didn't believe it. But we had huge sales really quickly. People tend to drink a lot while hanging around at a Hacker Space. --[[User:Enki|Enki]] 12:33, 18 January 2008 (PST)

SWAG at monthly expenses:

  • $2k rent (nets ~1k sq ft)
  • $300 utilities (I'm TOTALLY making this up just to have a number, not even sure what all I mean it to include)
    • PG&E, Water? (shared w/ NoStarch?), trash/recycling, insurance split over a year, ISP (I recommend sonic.net)
  • $100 misc (toilet paper, juice, resistors)

Expected Revenue from selling drinks: ~300-800$

Q. (by Unattributed): Is this realistic? metalab clears this much, but assuming we can come out of the gate and obtain the same revenue seems optimistic.
A. Yeah, 300$ is very realistic - that's like 8 drinks per day sold at a $1.2 profit. Our initial calculations were without drinks too because we didn't believe it. But we had huge sales really quickly. People tend to drink a lot while hanging around at a Hacker Space. --Enki 12:33, 18 January 2008 (PST)
