Darien Industries

Darien Industries
operates a cafeteria for its employees. The operation of the cafeteria requires
fixed costs of $4,700 per month and variable costs of 40 percent of sales.
Cafeteria sales are currently averaging $12,000 per month.

Darien has an
opportunity to replace the cafeteria with vending machines. Gross customer
spending at the vending machines is estimated to be 40 percent greater than
current sales because the machines are available at all hours. By replacing the
cafeteria with vending machines, Darien would receive 16 percent of the gross
customer spending and avoid all cafeteria costs. How much does monthly
operating income change if Darien Industries replaces the cafeteria with
vending machines?

Great job on the revision. Rating reflects the revision after upgrading the writer. Previous tutor's assistance was not very good at all. I am still very happy with the assistance provided by the tutor and the support team.
