Please read thoroughly the case study Kristen’s Cookie Company(.docx file attached) and answer the following questions below.
NOTE: please assume a labor rate of $12/hr in your calculations.
- How long will it take you to fill a rush order?
- How many orders can you fill in a night, assuming you are open four hours each night?
- How much of your own and your roommate’s valuable time will it take to fill each order?
- Because your baking trays can hold exactly one dozen cookies, you will produce and sell cookies by the dozen. Should you give any discount for people who order two dozen cookies, three dozen cookies, or more? If so, how much? Will it take you longer to fill a two-dozen cookie order than a one-dozen cookie order – and how does the level of effort compare?
