I have a job proposal for a fast food chain restaurant. How much should I charge?
Somewhere between $50 and$5000 per cut.
what a dumb question.
Wow!!!! Thanks for the answer. Next time, don't reply. (You know who you are).
Not to be a smart A$$ but what kind of answer did you expect. That is like asking how much does a new car cost. There are a TON of variables that must be taken into account when bidding on a job.
Sorry man, I had to.
Hey Guy I'll help you out . I charge per hr $ 60.00 or one dollar per minute .
Example : If it takes me 10 minute's to get there and 20 minutes to mow 10 to trim ,10 to edge , and 10 to blow thats 60 minutes = $ 60.00 . I've bid this way for 20 Plus years and it works . But make sure you complete the job in your time allowed . We mow over 65 fast ( Mac Burgers ) food Rest. weekly in the state .
try $0.002 per sq. ft.
I do a lot of Taco Bells and I charge them 60.00 an hr. The only time that changes is when I'm doing mulch. Then I charge by the yard.
I dare say, for a job really well done, $60 might not be too far off, but I don't know for sure because I've never actually done one.
See I think with McDonald's and other smaller lot properties you can bid somewhat like residential but you have to charge extra (and what I mean is compensate not super charge) for the curbs and small islands but also keep in mind the parking lot might need minor cleaning every time as well.
As a rule McDonald's employees are very conscientious about keeping the parking areas clean, so that's not a problem in itself but still they probably would appreciate it if you picked up those 3-4 pieces of litter that came about since one of them was last outside, might even be some customer dropped their whole meal's garbage outside like there isn't a trashcan, those kind of things.
But it still depends some, you can't bid $35 because it's 1/4 acre of grass either, there's usually more curbs, you DO need to do an all-around weed treatment even thou they're pretty good about this as well, but all around cracks in the pavement like by the curbs and the sidewalk and building as well...
