  • Re fill discount on fountain pop?

    Does anyone offer discounts on fountian drinks to customers for doing a re-fill? We currently do not, but were thinking about offering this promotion to try and make a little more revenue in this easy area. If anyone has tried, or does, could you please chime in? We have some ideas, but if someone has had success, and could help start me at what price moved most product for them and so on. It would make this easy idea go better and faster. Thanks so much.

        Every center is different, Some charge full price for refills, Some do refills at a discount because you don't sell the cup/lid/straw again. Just depends upon what you want to do, Or if you want to save paper product, Bottom line, You have to get the max you can get & still get the customers to buy, Soft drinks are probably your largest percentage profit margin of food & beverage in the center.

            For fountain - if you are not equipped with a gun - it is not sanitary to put once used cups against a valve actuator.

                  To add to this, some places have laws regarding what containers can be used for refills on fountain drinks, if at all. Ran into this a few years ago here in WI at a convenience store chain that used to offer the "Big Honkin' Soda" that you could refill at a discount if you reused the original cup.

                  And, yeah... great point, Jerry. Never thought of that and the ick that's on the levers. Even if the soda is dispensed via a button on the face of the station, many places still have the actuator that's activated by pushing the cup against it for ice. Definitely gonna remember that the next time I dine in at Ronald's Supper Club and have to tap my own drink... eeeewwww...

                    At one time we offered 25 cent refills on pop. The health inspector was here and told us we had to set the cup down and press the lever with our finger rather than press the lever with the cup.

                    We just ended all refills for customer safety.

                    As a reminder - do not throw the ice scoop in the ice - put a small plastic bowl in the ice for the scoop only - and do not scoop the ice with the cup
