How much are you willing to pay for your hotdog? Inflation is a real stressor in this economy and while prices may seem nominal when we look at them individually…put them together and you get quite an expense there.

Alexander E Debare @alexdebare is going completely transparent and breaking down why a hotdog at Burger28 is priced at AED 21 and people are divided…

He is the owner of some of your fave food outlets- Burger28, Sliced Pizza and 8bun. Watch the video below

His transparency has gained him some praise…

So the break up goes like this

Sandwich raw materials (bun, daqoos, hotdog, Oman chips) = AED 7

Staff salary= AED 2.50

Electricity, gas and refrigerator= AED 2.50

Shop rent = AED 2.50

Profit= 6.50!

But, if you order from home= AED 4 for delivery app services, then that’s a profit of AED 2.50

However, people are flagging that the raw materials do not cost so much

Although other entrepreneurs are supporting the expenses, claiming this is true. What do you think?
