GagesVending Posted December 17, 2013 Share Posted December 17, 2013 About 5 weeks ago I placed a Beaver way rack at a Mexican restaurant. The owner was not in at the time; but I spoke to the manager, who said yes to my 25% commission offer. Today I went in to service and the owner approached me and asked what the deal is with the rack. I told him that he receives 25% and he quickly told me that it's not enough. I asked him what he thought was fair and he said 40%. I told him that I can't make any money at that rate; so I told him I could pay 30%, but he said the lowest he would accept is 35%. I explained that I would need to raise the prices from 25 cents to 50 cents; which I felt may decrease the sales. So, figuring I'd need to spend a small fortune on new mechs, I asked him if I could instead replace it with a larger rack (7 way) and he said no! Even though there was more than enough room, he does not want a larger rack. Bottom line: The 4 way grossed $40 for 5 weeks at 25 cent vend (3 toys, gumballs). Should I pull the rack or simply replace the mechs? Being that it is definitely not a premium location, I don't feel that it is worthy of paying such a steep commission rate...what do you think? I'd appreciate everyone's input! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
