When a pizza truck sells 40 pizzas, they make $400. When Cleveland Espresso sell 40 drinks, we make $140. With an average customer order of only $3.50, our profit margin is too narrow to participate in events where vendors are charged a fee.
We love what we do, which is why we keep doing it. People love our beverages and our service. We hope you will understand and consider having us participate anyway. But if you don't, that's ok.
