lurtsman Posted January 27, 2009 Share Posted January 27, 2009 I had thought when I found locations I'd be able to put it on a table there, but after going out locating yesterday for about 30 minutes I had one location and it wanted the stand. Clearly one stand for four machines may not have been the correct ratio. I'm looking to go out locating single head machines today, and trying not to dread the question of if I have a stand. I'm considering buying a couple more stands--though I might go locating first and see what I hear offering that I can "be back next week with a stand" to add to the machine. Anyone have good ideas for securing locations w/o a stand. This size operation seems to be struggling with economies of scale as I try to secure locations and handle the purchase of candy. I tried filling the machines first, but that can be hit or miss on the selections (I can't even use stereotype locations -- like gumballs for kids, because I have no clue what location I will get. I walk door to door carrying my machine). Some good news along the way. The super 60s look studly. If I can get the three in my living room placed this week--and I can, I will be in good shape for more expansion. I'm trying to mix used machines for easier ROI, and some new super 60s from sams for my long term high quality fleet. Since the containers on the super 60s are huge, I'll want to get them into my high volume, and safe, locations. Over the summer I want to try making a rack out of them.... (with super 80s doing toys on top of course) Back on topic -- what are good ways to land a location for a single head w/o a stand? I have two gumball singles, and one skittles. Also, when locating singles with bulk candy, how full would your super 60 be? I figured no more than half, but my skittles machine is around 25-30%. (Had one 54 oz bag from sams) :dude: (This is my brave face, locating makes me scared) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
