Your cookie company is growing but not as rapidly as you would like. You are exploring producing products for businesses. During a recent conversation with the owner of a local car dealership, he offered to buy 500 cookies for a special event in the community. He asked that the cookies be displayed in the shape of a car and he would like the dealership’s logo on each cookie. He has agreed that the cookies can be your signature flavor.
The display will cost $200 to build and the logo for each cookie will cost $.03. This is a rush order and may require some overtime. You are required to deliver the cookies to the event and provide a napkin for each cookie.
The business owner would like a deal since he is purchasing so many cookies and you are “getting your name out there”. This could potentially lead to more business.
