What is a Sales Mix?
A sales mix is the mixture of items you sell in a given trading period.
Individual items are normally grouped into catagories, sometimes known as Revenue Centers to make reports easier to digest.
It is a good idea of have an idea of the gross profit percentage (GP%) you need in each category to give the overall gross profit you need to pay for your other expenses such as rent, overheads, bills and wages.
Find Your Hero
It's no good making a great profit margin in a category that doesn't make up much of your mix.
You need to have Hero dishes or even whole categories that make up your sales mix with a GP% of close to or higher than your target.
This may allow you to have lower prices and margins on items that you sell less of such as speciality coffee or wines for example.
