    Hi , how about some shop owners opinions of where these shop numbers should be ?

    April 11, 2016 at 3:18 pm #74344

    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 Sales
    Payroll Cost Percent of Total Sales
    Total Gross Profit

    2: 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 profitable 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.
