The average advertised price of a lime in U.S. supermarkets was 56 cents last week, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture via AP. That's up from 37 cents the week ending March 28 and 31 cents a year ago.
Fifty-six cents a lime in a supermarket means what, thirty cents wholesale? How many drink wedges are in one lime? Maybe ten? We’re talking an increase of a penny per drink!
Who do you work for?
Are you running your business on a penny saved per person?
Or are you running your business by keeping your customers happy?
