I used this as a way for students to build budgets and create statistics for marketing purposes. All students kept day to day inventory in a spread sheet. Students were rewarded based on who made the most profit in a month. Students were able to complete at least one full month of sales in an hour.

Technical Remarks:

The site is borked. You can sell cups with no lemons, ice or sugar. Students soon figured that you could cheat the game and they did.
