    Say you sell P5M of food products a month, that’s P60M a year. Account for food costs and costs of operating the Store (labor, utilities, royalties, rent, etc.), you might get cash flows from that annual Sales by 10%, or P6M per year. Without taking to account inflation, some growth on your Sales, and taxes, it would approximately take you a minimum of 5 years to recover the cheapest investment in the range declared above, which is P30M. This projected payback would be longer as the initial investment increases or as the assumptions of our computations become more realistic.

    2 years of recovery means either A) you could sell P13M a month, B) you are so thrifty you earn 25% cash flows (which would entail sacrificing a lot of quality), C) you bought a very cheap site, say, worth P12M (is this a food stall?), or D) you won’t pay taxes and/or other expenses, or a combination or all of these.

    ***Some approximation only***
