>tfw Europoors don't have access to affordable food
>I still think Costco makes literally no money on these. They haven't raised the price in at least a decade either.
Yes they do make money...
If you didn't know the food products they serve are literally the ones they also sell in bulk.
Those hotdogs they sell in their store for like 20 cents a piece or whatever, the buns too, and the drinks are cheap as heck in bulk.
>people are seriously paying a whole US dollar for a single HOTDOG
>not even a bratwurst/sausage or something, a fucking hotdog
you cherrypicked that shitty hotdog to showcase american food
you also cherrypicked that shit to showcase European food
And you know what? They're equally shit
Good job m8
>The sausages were culturally imported from Germany and popularized in the United States
>Eating junk food for 1.5 US$
>Not eating healthy food for 2 US$
Probably not if you factor in labor and overhead.
I bet there is a dollar of shit between the bun, the toppings, the cup, the drink.
When you factor in the labor, the warehouse space to store the food, for me to eat the food,
>labor and overhead.
dude one employee can make upwards of 100 per hour theyre not that complicated. The cup and drink probabaly total less than 5 cents assuming 2 refills, the dogs and buns are their own brand so theyre probs pretty cheap because they ARE the middleman, they probably get the toppings for pennies/pound, and they have no shortage of space.
Having said that, I'd bet that they at least break even on the food alone, factor in the foot traffic they generate and it's a win win
