  • Where P is the car wash profit per day
  • CW is the number of cars washed per day
  • CPC is the average cost of one wash
  • L&M are the labor and material costs per day

What is a car wash profit?

A car wash profit is a total revenue a car wash earns per day minus the total cost to run the car wash per day.

How to calculate a car wash profit?

Example Problem:

The following example problem outlines how to calculate a car wash profit.

First, determine the number of cars washed per day. In this example, the total number of cars washed per day is 100.

Next, determine the average cost per wash. In this case, the cost per wash is $25.00.

Next, determine the material and labor costs per day to run the wash. For this problem, the daily costs of labor and material are $500.00.

Finally, calculate the car wash profit using the formula above:

P = CW * CPC – L&M

P = 25* 100- 500

P = $2000.00
