"2 eggs, scrambled. Toast, Hashbrowns, and a side of bacon."
"Ok, bacon is an extra $4, is that fine?"
This is a fictitious conversation that may happen at diners across the country in 2013. Why might this be the case? Well you have to look at the costs of production to go from farm to table to understand...
1. Farmer "Dennis" raises pigs
- Costs of feeding pig, taxes on land, and transportation to slaughterhouse
- Cost to slaughter pig, package pig, deliver to grocery store or restaurant or distributor.
- Overhead (restuarant equipment, taxes, wages)
Just "food" for thought!
