    Yep, totally unanswerable question right there. I'm really good though so I can answer it. :D Anywhere from $100 to $100,000 in a season. Hope that gives you a ballpark figure to work off of. Fill er up! :D payup

    I believe you are looking for a percentage?

    Way to many factors, a lot will depend on your business model and what you project and how close you can budget to your goals.

    Newer or older equipment, franchise or 1 truck operation, heavy snow year or light snow year. Heavy repair year? Collections rate for the year?

    Everyone will be different.

    I think the only correct answer possible is PROFIT = REVENUE - EXPENSE.

    That's what you get when you hire the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders as your main shoveling crew....
