We have been getting odd questions like this of late. How much flour does a pizzeria in Poughkeepsie use in a week? How many slices of bologna does a Subway in Des Moines go through in a weekend?

The fact is that brokers don't have this level of knowledge. They go with the financial statements the seller gives them and keep their fingers crossed that he's not lying. Brokers don't audit a listing's books or get down into this level of detail. That's for the seller to divulge to the serious prospect.

The only way to know for certain is to sit there with the owner for a week and count them for yourself.
