  • CC Contract Cancelled

    My local package distributor called me today and said he had received a letter from RBNA announcing the cancellation of RB's association with Creative Concepts. Anyone else heard anything?

        Weel if you were dealing with CC, I would definately be reading over the contract with them very closely. My guess is from previous experience EVERYONE IS SCREWED, CC has your money and that is all they wanted. I tried calling today and got a machine, left a message and NO call back yet. But that doesnt suprise me. Thats CC's way of business

            Selling good used cars is noble.
            Selling a vending program via a boiler room mentality is deplorable.

              Vending red bull is a great concept, just that CC gave it a bad reputation with all their lies and high expectations

                If anyone wants to get rid of their machines, I may be interested, send me a email and let me know what you want for them

                  As long as you have a relationship with your local distributor you should be ok for product. Will Royal honor any warranty issues?

                    Very good Q southbull...I spoke with royal today on that exact issue (I bought my machines used) before I read this thread, and I was turned to CC. Royal must have received word of the CC news...I wonder what the deal is. Anyone heard anything from RB? I will be calling them tomorrow.

                      Thanks Entre. My focus is to maintain my accounts and continue to push product. I've already spent invested the $ for the machines- as far as I concerned my dealings with CC are done.

                        I would agree in not dealing with CC, and am so glad I did not wind up purchasing the machines from them. But today I was told from Royal that Royal does not deal with warrenty issues, CC does. I spoke with CC today (before I read this post), and operator sent me to a voice mail- awaiting reply.

                          Hey Lepke... what makes you the foremost expert on RB vending? i have no prior experience and i bought and successfully placed my machines myself... a lot of geniuses on here! as for RB no longer having anything to do with CC... the only issue is that of the warranty. if you already have your machines and a deal in place with a distributor, this essentially means nothing! i do, howevr, feel sorry for those who have paid for but have yet to recieve their machines... they may have a hell of a time recouping either.

                            i just spoke with a high ranking contact i have in RBNA. he confirmed that YES they did terminate their relationship with CC. he assured me that RB will contact all of us soon and that they will work with royal to honor warranty contracts. this is good news seeing i have a 3 year warranty. (i worked the salesman into includung it) truthfully, i think this is a good thing! Lepke, do you think those people who are sucking wind with a loan to pay and 5 machines in their garage really want your opinion??? especially in light of current events?

                              It's like that old saying "you can pay me now or you can pay me latter". I was one of those standing on the side lines with practically no vending experence,just about yelling Caution,Red Flag, Does Not Seem To Be Of Common Sense...to the newbie vending profit seekers waiting to toss big sums of money over the ships bow.

                              I do not see your point. This is a learning curve that some have had to learned the hard way. IMO An open forum at this point might just be therapeutic for all of us. As I have said before,this kind of thing makes me upset. I know that our board mates are good honest hard working people. Putting forth hard earned money in the hands of a less than forth coming company has to sting more than a 1000 pissed off bees.
