Be sure to pay close attention to the tofu when frying so that the flour layer doesn't burn. In addition, use enough oil for the deep fry frying technique so that the tofu is crispier.

If 1 box of tofu is only cut into 6 parts, you can get 300 pieces of tofu in fairly large sizes. If in a day you are able to sell 300 pieces of crispy tofu with a unit selling price of Rp. 3,000, then the turnover obtained is as follows.

Revenue = Selling Price x Number of Tofu Sold

IDR 3,000 x 300 pieces = IDR 900,000.

That way, you can get the following advantages.

Profit = Income - Operating Capital

IDR 900,000-IDR 724,000 = IDR 176,000 / day or around IDR 5,280,000

*Note: estimate if you want to sell tofu at a low price and already have the equipment to make crispy tofu.

The more the number of tofu sold, the greater the profit obtained because the operational capital in the form of complementary materials can be used several times. You can also start a crispy tofu business by means of a crispy tofu franchise with a capital of IDR 18.5 million. The estimated profit reaches IDR 800 thousand to IDR 1.8 million every day. All choices depend on you, you can choose an independent business by opening a home-based crispy tofu business or joining a franchise.
