Having a habit of drinking soda from restaurants can burn a huge hole in your pocket. This is because of the high markup price that restaurants usually use for sodas.
Now, if you didn’t know, mark-up piece is the amount added to the actual cost price before it is charged to the customers. And while most of the food items have a solid markup price in restaurants, it is soda that wins the race hands down.
According to retail markup data, restaurants charge around 1,150 % markup on restaurants. Now think about that for some time.
