    Hey everyone,
    Got a question that hopefully some can answer. I am doing a proposal for krispy Kreme doughnuts near cleveland ohio. We get about 25 snowfalls here and the lot size is 19,000 sq ft with walkway included. they want salt occasionally so how much should i charge for per push, contract price and how much to apply salt. Thanks!

    -man hours
    -wear and tear
    -costs for stakes
    = X (-1)
    + what you want to make = what to charge.

    I'd be around $50 to plow and minimum of $65 to salt. Then add in you walks.

    if theyre anything like dunkin donuts i wouldnt touch it. the rate they wanted to pay wouldnt cover my costs. they tried to sweeten the deal by throwing in a meal every time i plowed.
