  1. hair salon/nail places

    Sending the wife in might be a good idea. ..lol. Hair salons are hard to get in, most of them told me it didn't match their decor. I even offered commision, still no luck. I was thinking of trying barber shops too, they might be good.
  2. hair salon/nail places

    I bought a small route which included a small hair salon, I was pulling $30-40 every 2 months then all of a sudden I was pulling $60-80 every 2 months. Last cycle I pulled $107.50, I have tried other salong but no success.
  3. Your Best Location

    My best single gumball 107.50 canadian in a 2 month period, normally makes 60-80 in the same time period. It is in a small hair salon 2 employees!!!
  4. Where are you located? Best place that I know of is all star vending in montreal. If you are not within driving distance, you will have to ship. I believe if you buy a huge order, they will ship for free. Good luck
  5. Beaver Vending now making mechs for NW80

    I will be waiting, I need one for a 60 but everyone is sold out! Should have bought one before they were sold.
  6. 50 cent coin mechanism northwestern

    I will try allstar, this is where I buy alot of my candy.
  7. Looking for a Canadian source for 50 cent coin mechanism for a northwestern. My usual supplier is out and with the recent sale of northwestern, they don't know when they will get an order in.
  8. Machine thrown out!

    The guy didn't seem very reliable, there were other locations that said that the machines would be empty for long periods of time. This was a small part of a much larger route in a different city, there was 7 uturns.
  9. Machine thrown out!

    Went to service a newly acquired location the other day, to my surprise I couldn't find the machine. I asked the owner of the place where the machine was, he replied that he threw it out. He told me that he had called a year ago because the machine was empty, guess he was tired of the machine always being empty. This was part of a route that I had just purchased. Lucky for me , I got a hold of the guy that I bought it from and he replaced the machine.
  10. Locating your Machines

    Yup most of the time they never call. I was really lucky this month, not only did they call me back they put out a survey for which candy they wanted. This usually doesn't happen . I have given up on stores per say but I now go after warehouses and industrial companies. They also are not interested in comission.
  11. Making stands

    Funny this topic come up today, I just had some made yesterday. I had the flanges and pipes but no base, stands new in canada go for $80 each. I had a plate cut 18x18x1/4" with the flange welded to it, coat of black paint and looks real good. Cost was $75 for the 2 plates and another top plate to mount the machines on.
  12. Canadian product supplier?

    Hi, you can check out krazytown.ca they offer free shipping on orders over 350lbs. Not sure if your order would be that big though, they are based in southern ontario. If they can't help you, maybe they can find you a supplier that is closer. There is also all star vending out of montreal, I don't know what their shipping costs would be though. Hope this helps you out.
  13. help identifying

    Makes sense, thanks for the tip.
  14. help identifying

    Might be a silly question, what do the baffles do?
  15. help identifying

    I don't have any super 80's, would these be any value to anyone or should I just toss them out? Those plastic pieces are only approx 1 1/2 inched in size, they look like cams of some sort. They are different shapes just not sure what they are from. Those plastic pieces are only approx 1 1/2 inched in size, they look like cams of some sort.
