Vang relies upon his knowledge of economics to analyze the market for eggrolls.  “I use cost and benefit analysis to determine where I should operate,” he stated in an email.  “I look into the target population of the location, and do a test run with the product to determine how much demand is within the location.  At the same time, I use cost analysis to determine what are the cost involved, including money cost, time, labor, productivity and efficiency in operation hour. With all this I calculate profitability and that determines if I should continue to operate in the current location. “(Last Updated 6/21/19)
