Chicken ½ ekor Rp 18.000
Oil 2 liter Rp 27.000
Eggs 5 kg Rp 125.000
Condiments 500 gram Rp 30.000
Seasonings 100 gram Rp 10.000
Sugar 500 gram Rp 7.000
Salt 500 gram Rp 7.000

Fried onion 250 gram Rp 20.000
Chips 1 kg Rp 70.000
Pickles    Rp 30.000
Total   Rp 777.000

Based on the estimation above, 16 kg of white rice can be made with 80 servings of fried rice weighing 200 grams or 2 scoops of rice. Toppings and other ingredients used can be used for more than 1 day or even 1 month so it will save daily expenses. The monthly operational capital that needs to be spent is the cost of replacing/refilling LPG 3-4 times and employee costs (if using employees).

So the total capital is =

Investment Capital + (Daily Operating Capital x Days) + Monthly Operating Capital

=Rp 7,750,000 + (Rp 777,000 x 30) + Rp 750,000

= IDR 31.810,000

However, if you already have an investment in selling fried rice, then the capital needed is only daily and monthly operational capital or around Rp. 24,060,000

Estimated Profit

With the above capital, the following is an analysis of the estimated profit from the fried rice business. If in a day you can sell 80 servings of fried rice at a price of IDR 20,000 (complete topping), then the estimated turnover obtained is:

Revenue = Selling Price x Number of Servings X Days

= IDR 20,000 X 80 servings x 30

= IDR 48,000,000

So, the profit obtained is Income - Total Capital or approximately:

IDR 48,000,000 - 31,810,000

= IDR 16,190,000 /month

The above advantages are included with the initial capital of the equipment. The more and selling of your fried rice, the bigger the turnover you get. Plus, in the following month you don't need to buy any more equipment capital, but daily and monthly operational capital which makes the profit even bigger than the initial month.
