read the 2nd chapter The Nature of costs in the attached textbook and answer the problem P-12 at the end of chapter 2
Gino Potestio, owner of Napoli Pizzeria, is evaluating leasing an espresso/cappuccino machine.
A number of patrons have inquired about espresso and cappuccino beverages. Napoli currently does not offer these beverages. Gino believes adding these beverages will increase the
demand for his pizzas. A good espresso/cappuccino machine can be leased for $300 month. Each
espresso/cappuccino will sell for $3 and the coffee and milk will average $1 per serving. No
additional labor cost is needed because the restaurant staff has enough idle time to prepare and
serve the espresso/cappuccino. Gino estimates that the machine will add about $75 of additional
pizza profits per month.
a. How many espresso/cappuccino beverages must Napoli sell to break even?
b. Gino doesn’t want to offer espresso/cappuccino beverages unless he makes at least $1,000
per month after taxes including the additional sales of pizzas from adding espresso/
cappuccino beverages. Napoli’s income tax rate is 35 percent. How many servings of
espresso/cappuccino must Gino sell to meet his after tax profit goal?
