FoodOps helps brands plan growth and define their manufacturing plan. More often than not, this comes in the form of CAPEX assessments when the brand is thinking about purchasing and installing equipment. Whether the equipment is for self-manufacturing or going into a co-manufacturer, it’s important to know the true cost of the project.

What entrepreneurs don’t realize is that the equipment cost is only a fraction of the cost. The equipment need to be engineered, transported, installed, integrated into existing equipment, and commissioned. To that same end, finding a used piece of equipment for 50% off might only be a 10% total savings when all is said and done.

We worked with an experienced industry veteran to define reasonable heuristics on what additional costs brand could expect when installing a piece of equipment. This helps us provide realistic expectations to our clients about what they need to plan and fund as they scale.
