Guys, So I get this epiphany that I am going to take out the energy shot business at all the gas stations and 7-Elevens in my state. Ok, so I contact the maker of Slam which is an exact copy of the 5 Hour Energy shot. I speak with them for about 20 minutes and learn this. They will never discount to a "distributor" more than 40%. They start out at 3 bucks a shot. Just like 5 hr. So after shipping and handling they get it down to approx. 1.90 a shot. Now I have a couple of friends who own gas stations and convenient stores, and they tell me that they make about 80 cents on each 5 hr. or red bull shot, and obviously I need to beat that to make the product interesting to them. There is no profit margin here to speak of. So, does anyone know of a wholesaler for these type of shots, or a manufacturer that would actually deal in large discounts for bulk. The market is there. It is easy to get these in the stores, I just need the profit margin. Any help out there? Thanks.
