  1. 65k to buy a shop? You guys dont realize how good you have it! Our rent is almost $40k a year for 3,300 sq feet. Next year it'll be 3% more...
  2. We have almost 120 locations. I only let 1 of them know before we raise prices (because I know how they are). Other then that we raise them accordingly to maintain our margins. I always stagger the price increases. Do chips 1 quarter, then drinks later in the year, maybe candy the next year. You have to pass along price increases. It's one of the first things my Vistar rep told me when I got into the business. He said over the years he saw so many operator's fail because they were afraid to raise prices on their best accounts.
  3. If you can get away with doing cashless only go with Yoke. Their kiosk is only $2,000 and it's a flat rate of $75 a month. If you need to accept cash and cashless then Parlevel is pretty good. The kiosk runs you around $3k and there is a 5% profit share with a minimum of $125 a month. (Please research the numbers for yourself as it's been a few years since I started with them) I would say get 2 coolers from your local bottlers and a freezer for ice creams, burritos, etc. I built both of my markets enclosures and racks. Total cost was around $8,000 per market.. Your fixtures could vary drastically in price depending how fancy you want to make the market. Good luck!
  4. You can replace the "glass" for around $90 and an hour or two of labor.
  5. Check the prices. You might have accidentally set it to free. It happens with one slip of the button sometimes or forgetting to push the save/select button on 721s .
  6. Still so sweet to punish the bad guys!
  7. Payrange works well at apartment complexes if the laundry rooms have it. Other than that I prefer readers
  8. We sell quite a bit of Dunkin. They Retail $2.75-$3 ea.
  9. I can if you are near the valley. If you are closer to Orange County I can refer you. DM me
  10. I am with you on this post. I think most vendors are too timid to pass along price increases to locations for fear of losing them. I like to run the best equipment I can get my hands on and compete to be the best, not the cheapest. We shouldn't have to try and compete with grocery store prices either. A location with good equipment and great service should expect to pay up a little.. Ps. Going from $1.25 to $1.50 on candy is a little aggresive for me but more power to you.
  11. No the Dixie 5800 does not require any shims. It is the best glass front made hands down. Bev 3 refurbished for $3,000 is a good deal. I know very reputable technician that says the bev 3 has a more resilient compressor then the Bev4. Either one is very good IMO.
  12. Mei validator/readers suck because you lose the ability to do contactless (I believe). The plastic piece with knockout for card reader is around $32 from Vendors Exchange.
  13. Are they good lol. They are the best glass fronts made. If you had a relationship with a bottler you could probably get all or most of them at no cost to you. If you are going to buy them I suggest buying them in stages to reduce your risk in case the distributor is sketchy. God knows most of them are...
  14. Yoke has been reliable and the customer service is top notch.
