Facility and labor expense in Prophit

Tip: If you currently don't have any facility and/or labor expenses (because you happen to produce your goods in home and produce them yourself), we recommend entering an expense that is typical in your market. If you plan to grow your business but decide not to add production expenses, it's likely you'll be selling products that are no longer profitable once you take on the additional costs that come with renting a kitchen and hiring employees. You could raise your prices to counter the costs, but could potentially lose your customers and their loyalty in the process.
