View Full Version : Estimating sales for start up carbonated beverage company

07-28-2006, 07:15 PM
i am part of a start up selling a carbonated soft drink, initially targeting the greater NYC area.

does anyone have any idea as to what a realistic range is for first year sales of bottles is? we have no idea what to project for first year sales. can someone give me a general range for a product that will be packaged in 12oz glass.

are we talking about 10,000-50,000 bottles or is 300000-500000 bottles somewhat realistic in a first year, if we are handling our own sales and hiring trucks to distribute (but we are not selling through a distributor).

please respond to amaz99@gmail.com

LOL..but Zabe's right. Not enough info to make an educated guess. We don't even know what kind of product it is!

Based on his question I would say somewhere between 12 bottles and 500000 bottles is a good start.

Yes, Way too many variables.
