Here at Advanced Technology Services, we conducted a thought experiment of bringing the story of Willy Wonka to life. We were curious of the costs to run a chocolate factory for a year. Not so surprising, it came out to be a lot of money!
In total, it looks like Mr. Wonka and co. are looking at a grand total of $224.6 million to keep the factory running each year. These costs may be exorbitant, and we can think of a few ways to cut costs, but what fun would that be?
