It's just nonsense. The highest profit margin a bar has is on hard liquor. That's already right out the window with a barcade. You can't serve it either because kids won't be allowed into the place or because you don't want fuckers break shit.Salmonella wrote: ↑Thu Jun 25, 2020 4:20 pmI'd like to know what kind of kickbacks these "investors" are supposed to be getting. These places are notorious for having low profit margins as it is. Now they're saying they're going to have the food and the games cheap. At the very least he's going to have to hire a cook, bartender, and arcade maintenance guy. He's gotta pay rent, insurance, electricity, etc. PLUS he's gotta give kickbacks to his "investors"?
You really need a maintenance guy. Pinball machines need constant maintenance. Arcade games not quite as much but they are also more boring and don't really draw much of a crowd these days. You'd likely get the most out of fitan gaem cabs.
As I said, you could make a modest living from a barcade if you're really good. Paying off investors? HA! No chance.
