    What is the average net/gross profit for a forecourt shop?

    Does anyone happen to have a rough idea of what the net/gross profit percentages are (or should be) for a service station forecourt shop?

    I guess they would be similar to a café or any other business of that nature. Any indications?

    Thanks for the help.

    I seem to think 32-38% was the general margin, when I was looking at similiar ventures.

    Sorry I took so long to get back to you, but I forgot where the post was. I am putting it in number form, as sometimes I get confused as to which percent is which. It all depends from what angle one is looking.
    On a hundred rand turnover the cost of sales should be R62 to R68 making the 32-38% Gross Profit margin and the mark up is about 60%
    Hope this helps. When I did work for the SPAR they worked on getting an avergae of 35% GP margin
