Does anyone know where I can purchase imprinted plastic popcorn buckets with our logo? I can find suppliers, but they have a minimum of 10,000; we are a small theatre and just want to test the waters with a small quantity. Our intention is to sell the bucket for $10.00 and the customer can bring it back on Tuesdays for a FREE fill. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Sorry, no idea where you would get them done..but a word of caution about the free refills..you will want to put some sort of time limit on that or years later people will still be bringing in their crusty old buckets for a freebie..you could even end up making loads of popcorn and giving it all away if all your customers use that offer..we have a refill for $2 on any size soda (am in Australia) and we still get people bringing in their cups from The Incredibles, ice Age 2 and Happy Feet months and years later...in a way its fine cos it saves waste in the bins and we do charge for the refill..but wow..how long ago was Incredibles?? and if it was a free refill then we'd be giving the stuff that actually makes us a profit away for nothing!! Just think it through!

That part's easy to deal with. On the one size we refill, we only do it once. We put a mark on the bottom with a big felt pen. If it's marked, it's been filled. Easy.

True, but the refill offer also spurs purchase of the large size when people don't bother to get the refill. The end result is that you sell large sizes in cases where the customer might have otherwise purchased something smaller. It all works out. Our refill percentage is much less than half.
