    greetings one and all, i am a new distributor in long island, and i carry the following beverages:

    Rhino Energy Drink
    Blue Ox Energ Drink

    also, one more question, more of a general one, what product that i don't currently carry offers the most VALUE to a business owner? it doesn't have to be an energy drink, anything with a good markup, and i don't need to order several pallets worth.

    Oooh gourmet soda sounds good. And I'm sure it's not that nobody likes you, they probably just don't know what to say! I'd private message Zabe or something, he seems to be a pro on this kinda stuff.

    Yo JP, welcome to the board.

    It's not that no one likes you. Most people here are warm and fun to talk to.

    Those drinks you mentioned sound pretty narrowly distributed. I've been around, and the bottled water you mentioned is the only one I've even heard of.

    But maybe someone has some opinions.

    Actually, the sodasommelier would probably be a good person to ask as well. He specializes in glass bottled sodas, which is something you'd probably want to look at. Or maybe a line of glass bottled teas?

    JP,
    I am confused. You say that you carry these brands and you need to know where to begin? Did you buy the drinks before you developed a business plan? Need more data my friend.

    let me tell you my situation. i buy drinks from the warehouse, who in turn buys directly from the manufacturer. i am essentially the middle man, the man who delivers the product to the retailers. i am already in about 25 stores in only 2 or so weeks, but what i meant was that you guys obvbiously know alot more about the beverage industry then i do, i come from running a video game store.

    Can I ask you how you came about going from a video game store, into the beverage industry JP?
