How to lose $450,000 on catering one nickel at a time

The Catering Coach Sandy Korem not only keeps her sprawling catering business flying high, she consults with restaurants and caterers under the philosophy of “you make money on the pennies and nickels.”

She should know. Soon to be serving her eight millionth cookie, she luckily keeps precise cost-tracking on every ingredient.  Just being a nickel off could have cost her $450,000 with the cookies she’s served.

Korem recently sat down with the Foster Farms Wing It! podcast in a three-part series to discuss the loose change that adds up to catering profits.
