  1. My company covers multiple states. I would say for single heads absolutely not. We do many, many racks, cranes, merchandisers, and arcades so the traveling is definitely worth it. I personally like the travel but don’t see how there is any way single heads would be able to work at that scale.
  2. depends on the quantity. If you are doing $1k bags most of the big banks and credit unions will take them. If you are talking less than a couple hundred I have no idea.
  3. I’ve had Mike&Ikes destroyed ordering through sams in summer. Way to big of a box and too hot of trucks. I also have had multiple Bonz break open and show up with 3lbs taped up instead of 30lbs. Or they never show up and I know they broke apart either in terminal or on truck so are never delivered. Sams always credits back when it happens but not an ideal situation. I used to own many FedEx Ground routes so I very much know why and how these problems happen, especially with the non reinforced single piece of tape that secures the top and bottom of a 30lbs confection box.
  4. I am not seeing the end result either. The logic is flawed. You do make more per case but that is an apples and oranges comparison. If you load 1080 gumball of 850 (which would be just over a case and a quarter) you will make more money on a bigger gum. The case is irrelevant, take that out of the equation. (850 count) 1080 pieces x.024= $25.92 cost, sell for .25 each= $270 gross. $270-$25.92= $244.08 profit (1080 count) 1080 pieces x .026= 28.08 cost, sell for .25 each= $270 gross. $270-$28.08= $241.92 profit You are costing yourself over a couple dollars for selling the same amount of smaller gum.
  5. Looks like out of nowhere all the sams within 150 miles are out of 850. Anyone know if they are planning to role out online only on this too?
  6. That is what we do. Bulk bags for quarters with my bank. Credit union coin counter for the “extras”

    .25 northwest mechs are for the super 60 .25 beaver mechs are for 1” as well.

    I don’t know if this needs to be moved or if it is in the right spot. I bought a huge route about a year ago that also came with a very large surplus of machines and parts. I have placed a ton of machines but I am wanting to downsize out of my expensive warehouse and the best way is to stop storing so many parts. We only use beaver, northwest, and northern beaver heads and racks (besides a few of the knock off A&A). Virtually all is used equipment but working. 100+ 2” heads mostly super 80 some northern Beavers. Most have .75 cent mechs ($75 each) 100’s of candy/ gumball/ toy wheels for both 2” and 1” ($10 each) 100+ .25 beaver mechs ($22 each) 100+ .25 Northwest mechs ($22 each) 50+ j stands with casters ($20 each) 100+ Brand 4 column sticker machines- majority on stands ($15 each) I have been talking to a local distributor that is wanting a fair bit of my equipment but wanted to try here first before going that direction. These prices are for pickup not sure what the shipping cost would be in addition. I am based out of Utah.
  9. Best to talk about any tax information with an accountant but yes commissions paid is very much a deductible expense.
  10. USD/ coins will not be replaced. It would be decades to even get to the possibility of replacing paper with coins let alone digital currency. Multiple reasons for it that I don’t have the time to get into. This also comes from a crypto currency investor (even though I have sold all of my coin as of beginning of January besides a little ICO) so I do have somewhat a belief in digital currency but not anywhere close to what the manics believe. Just to humor you if it were to happen for the most part, yes traditional bulk would be dead. You can’t invest $400+ dollars per machine (possibly per head) plus ongoing WiFi costs, plus transaction fees to sell a few pieces of candy.
  11. Don’t have any charity stops. I have commissions at almost every place but also don’t put in anything smaller than a 5 rack at decent locations. When I bought the route I told my drivers to take out all charity stickers and let owner know we will service the machines but the money goes to the business, the old owner didn’t give money to charity and I won’t be dishonest and feel like I am stealing from kids. I didn’t get kicked out of anywhere.
  12. “The closures also affect stores in New Jersey, upstate New York, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Louisiana, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. In some locations, per social media, people showed up to work only to be told that their location was closing, with nearly no advance notice.”
  13. All of you guys talking about huge sales or discontinued gum/Mike & Ikes. Did your Sam’s club get closed? They announced a couple dozens stores closing today.
  14. They are usually the most trusted. I have never went that direction with any business thus far and probably never will. I can’t imagine needing to fire a relative if they were having trouble keeping up with the pace I wanted or worse. I don’t know if I have ever received more unasked for advice than this statement “never work with family”. Not trying to poor water on the thought I am sure it has worked in thousands of companies.
