Calculation of Contribution Margin Revenues = \$627,695,000 Minus Variable Costs = \$511,621,000 Contribution Margin = \$116,074,0002. Calculation of Break Even Variable Cost = \$511,621,000 Fixed Costs = \$80,780,000 Break Even = \$592,401,000*To take it one step further I will assume that revenues are generated primarily from burrito sales at \$5.60 each. 592,401,000/ 5.6 = 105,785,893*I estimate that Chipotle needs to sell roughly 105,800,000 burritos to break even based on the information supplied.
