Pepsi: $59.45 5 gal. box with their machines.
Can you do that at Costco, too? No Sams around here.

We pay about $51 USD for our Pepsi bibs.

Supposedly Pepsi is using aggressive pricing as part of their "Urban Plan" for theatre in Urban areas.

slap - you need to ask for "national pricing"

If your rep won't give it to you, let me know, and maybe I can find someone through my Atlanta rep that will get you on national pricing.

Does anyone use the "off brand" soda syrup that Sams Club sells? I wouldn't want to use their cola instead of Coke or Pepsi, but the fruit punch, lemonade, root beer etc might be worth a try. Anyone have any experience with the stuff?

Mine is supposed to be National pricing. I see there is quite a difference in that. How is that possible?

...they sell it by the gallon in a BIB which can be a 3 gallon or a 5 gallon. Your bill will usually say something like price: 12.00 and quantity: 3 or 5 = net price for the BIB. We buy 5 gal Pepsi for 60.00. I love my BIB.

I was quoting the 5 gallon price. I am on national contract. I own all machines except in one theatre which I have to pay a small rental fee since WI does not allow "free" equipment by law which came about I believe in the 80's and really sucked at that time because I had a tavern and was getting all my glasses, coasters, signage and napkins free from distributors--the law put an end to all that.

"loving my cans".... let me explain. We have in one of our theatres, the [url=http://www.colonialtheatre.com,]www.colonialtheatre.com,[/url] a three screen with a very small lobby for the traffic we receive. And 9 doors that go to closets, booth, lower lobby, tiks, in and out, theatres, etc. When we're busy, which is often enough the line backs up and doubles back through the lobby. Whenw e first took over we had a electric cooled/no ice tank system and it spit like crazy and foamed and it made people bail from the line. Customers will wait but only if they can see the line is moving. When we modernized in 96 we chucked the pour and went to cans to move people faster and it worked. But there was a problem. Trackfood: nod your head and laugh here. 1 oz of pour soda costs +/- .01 and 1 oz of canned soda costs .035 so even if you figure ice/cups/etc. figure you are losing a net of .02 x each oz so even if you only sell a 12oz cup (way small for theatres) you have just lost .24 on that sale. Due to size availability: Let's up it a bit and say average lost soda sale is .30 each current sale. If you sold 100,000 sodas in a year you'd have a loss of 30,000.00 by selling cans. And.... keep in mind no one can order a BIG GULP when you have 12 oz cans. They buy one and it's over. Also: everyone knows how much they pay for a can of soda at the store. There's more mystery about larger ice cooled beverage.

When I opened my 2nd theatre www.templemovies.com I put in self serve pour soda. Would not have it any other way!

Now: back to the Colonial: we are right now planning the new concession stand and it will have self serve pour soda. What we finally had to work ourselves around to was that we are changing our dowble doors into each theatre into single doors and that allows us to stretch the concession stand out an additional 6' total and at one far end we'll have a self serve station. That should be done in late April.

Imagine this. One year loss of 15K +/-. Does not sound too bad. But say we had done it in 95? X 13 = 195,000.00

OMG


Enough said. You simply must pour soda.
