      I'm curious to find out what impact there will be for those that purchased Royal machines not through CC- is there a way to get "registered" with RBNA?

        Lepke... you sure do have a lot of time on your hands! at this point its safe to say, no one really cares for your opinions or thoughts. so why not just go away? there are plenty of threads here. some of which i'm sure suit whatever facet of the "beverage" business you're in. go someplace else. its clear no one here really wants to hear you rant about something you have no vested interest in! i'll tell you what... i have 4 machines placed in Jersey... you give me $20k, i'll sell you my route and then you could throw in your 2 cents. otherwise.... GO AWAY!!! you're a blowhard and obviously no one wants to read your bull**** anymore. i agree that perhaps your negativity and hostility come from shortcomings in other areas!! please... just SHUT UP!

          Speaking for myself, I would be thrilled if we could take a step back with some humility(you made need to Google for the meaning) and wish each other a healthy and Holy weekend of Passover and Easter.

          We can agree to disagree with some respect. IMO

            I was running the soda pop fountain at the Camp David accords. I made some good money as Jimmy Carter gave me a great deal on a load of salted peanuts. LOL Those low priced peanuts kept those soda pop tabs sky high. LOL

              Arafat drank Sabra flavored Bubble Yum soda pop.

              Barak drank Coca Cola glass.

              Clinton drank Viagra body shots.

              Did you know that in some parts Dr Pepper only comes in a bottle.

                Not to offend anyone but,I am going to agree with Lepke on this issue. This is an "energy drink" section on beverage board. The posts as of lately have gotten out of hand. This board was meant for discussion of energy drinks, not "how much should I charge?" or "how many cans does my machine hold?". These questions would be better answered on a vending forum. Most of the people on this board are knowledgable on the beverages themselves, not in the intricates of vending machines. I myself, along with many others have some knowledge of machines but would not classify it as industy expertise.

                While one person wants to "rant" about a veteran of this boards opinions and grammatical mistakes, not everyone feels this way. Just because you do not wish to hear his opinions does not make them any less valuable to someone else. Grammatical mistakes are what you fall back on when you do not have a valid argument on any thing else and feel that you must have the last word.
                As far as telling others to leave, well we all for the most part got along quite well before your 2 weeks here and 17 posts. You really have no right telling people to leave just because you do not care for what they had to say. I know I am guilty of this as well, but the 2 people I have told this to were touting a sex inspired drink that more than likely NOONE outside of their company will more than likely ever see.
                Bash me all you want, I have said it before and will say it again, I am not the one out $20,000 and have several machines with product getting closer to code everyday. I for one would like to wish you the best in your business endeavor, I hope you make a million bucks.

                    I beg to differ with you on this one. I am of the understanding that The BEV NET is a magazine for the beverage industry as a whole. This will surely encompass all those persons that sell beverages whether it be off a truck, in the cooler, out of a vending machine, etc. RBNA is a beverage company that sells beverages to resellers. If they feel that the way to grow their business is through vending machines then more power to them. After all, didn't Coke and Pepsi eventually move into the Vending game per se? Would not consider them able participants on this board?
                    Furthermore, If someone asks how to price their energy drink product in an "ENERGY DRINK" forum I think that is one good place to start to garner valuable information. It's just not about taste and how many oz's a drink should be that is important.
                    People come to this board because they feel it can provide them with information that is useful to their own professional/personal goals. Why should someone else(other than The BevNet administrators) decide who gets to come here and who doesn't?

                    If you don't like these peoples post ignore them, don't respond, etc.
                    Whether you think can or think you can\'t, you\'re probably right!

                      It's good Friday, 25 years ago I along with 12 or so dorm mates had the most intense psychedelic party ever held at the University of Illinois dorms. You see nearly the entire dorm went home for the Easter holiday.

                      12 guys and I had an open hall way all weekend trip,stone and drunk party; we had a back gammon rotating tournament that lasted for nearly a day. We had a pow- wow room for wampum ceremonies. We broke into the cafeteria and stole some much needed food.

                      We all did this as a group. Some of us did not get along too well. But this one weekend was magical. That weekend was special, we partied as a team and as unified dorm floor.

                      My point to this story is that we wanted to party and have a great time. We wanted to make it work.
                      Ok, we were very stoned but we wanted to make it work. LOL

                      This is my sentiment for these threads. Do we want it to work and will the stronger party want the second to last word?

                            My husband has been in vending for 10 years and did his research before buying from CC. He actually called RBNA and verifyed that CC had the authority to sell Red Bull Vendors. Other than the fact that the vendors were overpriced and the estimated sales were exxagerated, CC came through on everything promised. My greatest fear was that no vending machines or product would be delivered. I persoanlly contacted CC about their not delivering the vendors within the time period that they advertised. My husband was refunded for two sub par locations that were located by Coastal Locaters. CC refunded half of what two other machines would have cost to be located, even though my husband did the locating himself. I think CC overextended themselves and was too overwhelmed by the response. I do hope RBNA will help the vendors who bought from CC. The impression I got from my husband's phone call to RBNA yesterday was that he was on his own. IMO, RBNA should stand behind the vendors who purchased these machines from CC in good faith that they had an agreement with CC.

                              I received a call from RBNA. From them, not me initiating the call. Their call was very reassuring. Before this I had spoken with my local Distrbutor who had put alot of my fears to rest on this. NOTHING has changed. If you are already dealing with your local distributor for product, then they will be your contact for product and for additional machine purchases. The only exception to this being good news is maybe those who have distributors who also place and service machines, in which case there are some unique complications there. My distributor, however, is solely distribution. They're anxious, as was RBNA from our conversation, to continue a long and mutually beneficial relationship with their existing vendors.

                              In fact, it's rather exciting news, at least where we are located. My distributor has really taken the reins on this, and has been in contact with me several times for various things. He is anxious to try to see if the vendors he currently services would be interested in meeting at their offices and becoming familiar with each other and our territories. He had lots of ideas on how to expand our presence and further our routes and the brand.

                              I'm not sure who your husband talked to at RBNA, but there's a good chance that he may have spoken with someone who was not initimately familiar with the details. Calls in to RBNA will sometimes get you in touch with people who are willing to give you answers to questions for which they don't have all the details. RBNA, I'm told is contacting all of the vendors who went through CC to explain the split and to allay any fears they may have about their future with the company. The manager I spoke with was very candid about their ideas for the future of the program, and why the current program was terminated. If I may, I'd suggest calling your local distributor for information, since you can be sure, they have been in contact with folks at RBNA who are initimately familiar with the circumstances and the new process. Your distributor should ALWAYS be your first stop.

                              edit: Here's something else to consider. If RBNA was just interested in selling vending machines, and not in developing and growing their vending presence, they would have let CC keep on doing what they were doing. It is in their interests, your distributors interests, and your interests that you be successful in your endeavor. The success is, of course dependent on you, but with respect to support and resources - things just got better, not worse.

                                im trying to figure out why i read 39 out of the last 40 posts...lol. Some posts are off topic- like that is uncommon. Energy drink thread, energy drink vending, so what...Only thing i don't like is a similiar discussion coming up in more and more threads heheh.

                                I look forward to what my local distributor will say about the machines now that CC is out of the picture.
