Customer looking to outsource cleaning services. How do I handle this?
So I got a call the other day from a small medical facility that is looking to outsource it's cleaning services. I went to meet with the manager today and all looks good. Nice clean facility. She wants two part time workers. One in the morning and one in the evening to clean the facility, change sheets, do laundry etc. The customer will provide all the "tools of the trade" and solutions. We just have to provide the cleaning staff. I'm currently working on a bid for that customer and I have everything except for the price. What do I charge? 30 hours a week split between two employees. I want to pay the employees between $12-$13 an hour. ... and I need to make a profit. The employees payroll alone will be $360 a week. Do I double that and take another $360 for the company? I would have to pay insurance, taxes etc out of that. Would it be too much, or maybe too little? We are located in Central NJ. I'm trying not too quote too little but I also don't want to scare the customer away with our quote! :roll eyes: Any help would be greatly appreciated!
