weddings – chicken dinner

Question:  Why does a chicken dinner in some hotels cost as high as $70.00 per person.  This seems a bit extravagant.

Answer:   The chicken does not cost that much – it’s still a $2.50 chicken crossing the street.  What does cost money is the overhead (labor – production – materials – utilities – liability insurance etc.) that produces this chicken dinner.  It’s like a piece of gum – the stick of gum possibly costs .05 cents but the packaging, overhead etc plus advertising could bring that small package up to $2.00.
