Metro Port-A-Pit is engaged in helping groups and organizations raise dollars selling our famous Port-A-Pit Chicken! These groups can include schools, social organizations, fraternal organizations, philanthropic organizations, youth groups, civic groups, benefits and more.
Port-A-Pit Chicken Halves Estimator
Fund raisers are based on the pre-sale of tickets on behalf of the fund raising group/organization. The success of your fund raiser greatly depends on the pre-selling of tickets by your organization. Selling tickets through all members of your group and supporters makes for great success. Your group is responsible for making tickets and distributing them. Limit the pick up time on the tickets, for example, 11:00a.m. - 2:00p.m. for ticket holders. This allows your group sufficient time to sell any products that were not picked up by ticket holders.
Fund Raiser Profit Estimator
We used the Port-A-Pit Chicken Halves information above to illustrate how the success of your fund raiser greatly depends on the pre-selling of tickets by your group. For example, if you want to raise $2100.00—we suggest, selling 400 tickets at $10.00 each. For a net sales of $4,000.00. Next, subtract your cost $4.75 from the suggested selling price of $10.00. Then multiply $5.25 by 400. Your profit is $2100.00. Final payment to Metro Port-A-Pit for the 400 halves--$1900.00 is due on the day of the event.
The Metro Cooker
The Metro cooker is a great advertising tool and has proven to greatly enhance fund raiser sales. Occasionally, there will be times when a group may want the cooker to remain on-site later than the contracted time:
- You may order additional on-site time at a rate of $15.00 per hour with a maximum of 2 hours.
- You must order additional time when finalizing your order (6 days before your event).
- If your group does not require the extra time, your BBQ Chef will credit your group for the time not used.
At the time of finalizing your event, the Metro sales staff will inform you as to the time the BBQ Chef will finish. If you would like the BBQ Chef and cooker to stay longer, PLEASE inform your sales person at that time.
