  1. honor box pricing

    Hi, Sounds like you are doing well with the lollipop boxes. What charity are you working with?
  2. Mint Box Locator Warning!

    I also got an email from them. I asked him for more info and a website, never heard back. I suspected he got my info through Sheridan. Thank you for your warning.
  3. Hello, Would this be for honor boxes also?
  4. What to do when questioned?

    I also am leery of people asking me specifics about the money from my boxes. What AMD Snacks says is a great point, in that people who get a salary from working for a charity would never get questioned, yet we do. So would it be so bad to liken the little money we profit off of a box to be considered a small compensatory "wage"? Would it be dishonest to explain (if questioned) that we make a small wage from working for the charity? Isn't that what we are in essence doing? We put out time, gas, supplies, maintenance into these boxes and after hoping there is minimal theft, get some money for our efforts. I know this topic has been brought up on this forum before, but I am interested to hear others' experiences and opinions.
  5. Margaret is good about this at Sheridan, if that's who you're using. If you call and speak with her and let her know your situation I believe she will work something out.
  6. How Are Your Mint/Candy Boxes Doing?

    If you don't mind me asking, how did you find the girl that does your locating, and how much do you pay her? Is there any kind of contract for replacements? I've tried placing ads on craigslist with no real luck. Thanks.
  7. I am looking to buy a small amount of plastic Sheridan type honor boxes for a good deal. Used is great. Maybe someone on here is looking to get rid of some. I would want about 10 to 20, but unless you are near Buffalo, NY I would need them shipped. Please let me know. Thanks.
  8. Are hotels worth it?

    Do you run into any trouble with the chain hotels not giving approval, just like chain restaurants usually dont give approval? Are you putting them in big name places?
  9. Just getting into honor boxes

    I know you found this deal on Craigslist, but what search terms did you use? I can never find deals on people selling their honor box businesses. As far as the mix I use, it depends on the place. Restaurants I stick with York mint patties and possibly fund size bars, and other places that are more casual I may put in blow pops, tootsie roll pops, fun size skittles and swedish fix mixes. All found at my local Sams and BJs. The day after Halloween, my hubby and I make the rounds to grab as many sale mix bags as we can. Last year I ended up with a back seat full for some great deals the day after Halloween. Not to hijack the thread, but others please chime in with your success with mint boxes. And, is anybody doing Nuts and Guts for Glory?
  10. Hi there Vendors!

    Hi, If the box is destroyed you just return it to sheridan and the royalty fee is discontinued. If the box is stolen, I believe you can notify them and the same will happen.
  11. Anyone in Ohio

    How many do you have and how are they doing for you?
  12. Jolly Rancher Sticks

    Could only find mini JR Sticks in mixes around Halloween, but they never did great for me. My husband has suggested trying liquor stores, but I never thought they would do well. Not sure why JR Sticks would be wanted in particular there? A way to flavor your vodka without buying flavored vodka?!
  13. How Are Your Mint/Candy Boxes Doing?

    That's great! Let us know your success rate at placing them, and how many rejections, if any.
  14. How Are Your Mint/Candy Boxes Doing?

    Welcome! It's great to hear from you. Keep us in the loop as to how your boxes are doing!
  15. How Are Your Mint/Candy Boxes Doing?

    Yes, I agree that face to face locating is the key. Are you using just cardboard or do you have the acrylic as well?
