Example of the Restaurant and the Printer

The following slides show how using yewtrade is a much more efficient (and profitable) method of converting your spare capacity into cash than the typical sale or 2 for 1 offer employed by most businesses at certain times of the year.

  • The Scenario

    A restaurant wants to change their menu and a printer has quoted £700 to produce them.

  • Options

    If the restaurant wants to generate more business in order to pay for the new menus he has a few options. If he is not a member of yewtrade then to generate the extra business he must provide an offer such as a 2 meals for the price of one deal.

  • The 2-for-1 Deal

    By introducing a 2-for-1 deal the restaurant must sacrifice some of their profits on these additional meals. If they make £20 per table of 4 on the new offer then they need to sell 35 extra tables to generate the £700

Restaurant Scenario
  • Selling the meals on yewtrade

    If the restaurant is a member of yewtrade he can instead sell the meals that he would ordinarily sell for £100 for ¥100 yewtrade pounds (Yews).

  • Result

    After selling 7 tables of 4 to yewtrade members for 100 Yews each, the restaurant has generated ¥700 Yews. These ¥700 Yews can be used to pay for the printing of the menus with a printer who is also a member of the exchange. In this way the restaurant has not needed to sacrifice his profits and yet all the yewtrade customers still ate at a discount. This discount comes from the profit margin of their own business.

  • Comparing the 2 options

    With the 2 for 1 deal the restaurant needs to provide 35 meals for the table of 4 to generate the extra money needed to pay for the menus.

    By using yewtrade the restaurant only needed to sell 7 meals for the table of 4 to generate the extra money needed to pay for the menus.

  • Discount

    By using yewtrade the menus have only cost the restaurant £245 instead of £700. This is how much it cost the restaurant to provide the meals.

  • Efficiency

    Using yewtrade is a far more efficient mechanism for getting the most out of your business's spare capacity.
