First box stolen!

9 posts in this topic

Went into my Chinese restaurant. Lady told me someone decided to get a free meal for the night. They raided the lollipop box, and took mine as they went out the door.... Welcome to vending.

I lose about 10 to 15 a year. Funny, most are the plastic ones. Only had a couple of cardboard ones stolen or lost.

thats interesting to hear, i thought it was just me. i think it has a lot to do with the money being so exposed.

We had a second box at the same location destroyed again today (pulled it now).  I think they were trying to get the dollars out.  My guess is an employee, but whatever.

 

Honestly, it seems that the candy for cause boxes are high risk here.....have had 2 stolen and 2 destroyed out of about 40-45 out in just a few months.  My current collection rate is about 70% which makes the margins pretty slim if they aren't selling much.  I am thinking that we will concentrate more on the bulk side and gradually reduce these to the 10-20 or so that are consistent.  Here the economy is good and managers turn over a lot so it's easy to get kicked out even after being in location for a few months.

Yeah I'm new to candy for a cause but have already had 5 boxes disappear, two some other guy took my boxes and put his, and the rest are barely breaking even on candy and gas. At the right location I can see potential, but I don't have enough time to keep relocating every two weeks and replacing boxes I think are getting stolen or thrown away

I guess I am in a good area. I have had 40 boxes out for about 6 months now. Are you in urban or rural areas?
