Cost Per Serving Of A Baked Russet Potato From Idaho

Q:

How can I easily figure out what the individual potato cost is to bake an Idaho® Russet? I usually order a 90 count, Russet Burbank or Russet Norkotah.

A:

If your restaurant is paying $15.00 for a carton of 90 count Idaho® potatoes they cost 16.7 cents apiece. Here is the Cost per Serving chart to calculate the cost at different pricing and also to determine the cost of going up a size or down a size potato.
