Hi , how about some shop owners opinions of where these shop numbers should be ?April 11, 2016 at 3:18 pm #74344Site Administrator / Forum ModeratorKeymaster
Jeff, that would certainly be welcome. We have made some additions which should help with what you mentioned.
1: We created 5 additional calculators:
Marketing Cost Percent of Total Sales
Oil Changes Performed Percentage
Parts Cost Percent of Total SalesPayroll Cost Percent of Total SalesTotal Gross Profit2: We added goal ranges to the calculators where the result is a percentage. Percentages are generally similar regardless of where your shop is located. (We did not add goals to the calculators where the result is a dollar amount because that can vary so much from one geographical area to another.)Note: Regarding the goal ranges, these are not just someone’s suggestions or theoretical numbers. The goal ranges were determined by monitoring a number of typical independent shops – both small and large – over a period of time, then coming up with an average, then allowing for some leeway both up and down.
