    Okay so it isn't just for under 18's but it is suitable for younger people.

    So what do you need to start?


    • About £5/$9-£30/$50
    • A local sports club/school
    • A marketing mind ;)
    It is a very simple concept. You can buy packs of 24 cans of pop for roughly £5/$9 so that works out at roughly 20p a can. Cans generally sell for 50p at retail in the UK. So this means selling at retail would make you 30p a can.
    24 x 30 = £7.20. Thats your profit selling at retail.

    So now you know where the money is made, if you target big events, for example a football match, or a school sports day, you could sell the cans for 60,70,80p even £1. So imagine the profit possibilities.

    If you sold 24 cans at £1 you would make £19.20 in proft and at big events you could sell 100's...

    I know this is petty cash to most of the members here. But younger members may struggle to gain capital and this could help them out alot.

    Please leave feedback/suggestions.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Most school sports day does not allow coke, pepsi etc ;) and 1000's of teen kids running around which do you think they would prefer, some fruit juice, or a nice cool refreshing drink of coke? ;)


    Yup, you could make the mistake of buying them priced up which would loose you alot in profits.

    Also to add, I would recommend doing calculations before going out and selling them. For example. 48 cans x 60p = £28.80 or whatever. Helps out alot. ;)
