I’m going to be doing a smoothie bar (yeah sponsored) for a financial firm in Washington, DC, and need to tell the sponsor how much this is going to cost. Has anyone done anything like this before? Any guidance on cost (I know what kind of smoothies will I make, ingredients)? Or, any other things you didn’t know that you know now and would be generous to share with me. Also, any recipes–different ones other than the strawberry, banana smoothie, or ones with kale or spinach? There will be about 60 attendees. /Jayne
Thanks for your speedy reply! I need to clarify my question: This is a corporate lunch-n-learn to jazz up staff about the importance of nutrition. Instead of me speaking, we’re doing a smoothie bar — an in and out thing where I go in, make smoothies and talk to staff. There is not rent to pay, and I’m not charging for these. I have a sponsor who is paying for my time and materials.
So, if there are 60 people who attend, and I make three variations of smoothies using frozen fruit, how much should I budget in terms of quantity per person. How much should I charge for my time? I’m going to have to do the shopping and probably get a cooler with dry ice to hold the frozen fruit. I’ll also need to have the veggies cut up, say, kale, etc. And, thanks for the nutribullet recipes. I need to keep this simple and serve delicious smoothies that combine ingredients that people aren’t used to. Cheers, Jayne
