Bob's Big Burgers is considering a proposal to invest in a speaker system that would allow its employees to service drive-through customers. The cost of the equipment (including installation of special windows and driveway modifications) is $30,000. Jenna Simon, manager of Bob's, expects the drive-through operation to increase annual sales by $25,000, with a 40% contribution margin ratio. Assume that the system has an economic life of six years, at which time it will have no disposal value. The required rate of return is 12%. Ignore taxes.
