If you're already vending cotton candy, then you realize the margin is significant.
Using the sources we recommend to our clients, the material cost of a "small" serving made on a paper cone is just $.10 cents - and this cone will sell for $3 all day long.
The large portions that really "Wow the Crowd" are spun on 20-22 inch long bamboo skewers or plastic sticks (paper won't support their weight) and your material cost will be no more than $.27 cents; yet these will sell for $5 without any price push-back whatsoever.
In many markets (especially fairs, carnivals & amusement parks) your pricing power may be significantly higher.
Of course, if you're a volume seller and mixing your own floss-sugar and also order supplies in bulk quantities then you can cut your input costs by 30% as well.
All of that said, what makes Flying Cotton Candy so much more profitable than what you're currently selling is the customer draw and the gross revenues that it will produce.
Impressive margin doesn't matter if people aren't motivated to buy the product, and this is the drawback with most cotton candy operations. Demand is limited, so while margin is high, total revenues are not impressive, at least not by comparison.
With Floating Cotton Candy, the margin remains the same, but the demand is what makes the difference!
While many will walk past cotton candy sitting in bags and buckets, Floating Cotton Candy is an entertaining show stopper that attracts attention from as far as 20 to 30 yards away.
On top of the entertainment value, even people who don't think they like cotton candy suddenly discover that they just don't like cold, stale cotton candy, but do enjoy it quite a bit when it's served fresh, warm and made just for them, right in front of their eyes.
This opportunity might not be such an exciting prospect if Robo JetFloss machines were everywhere, and perhaps in 10 years that will be the case.
Right now, however, Floating Cotton Cotton Candy is an absolutely new phenomenon and there is simply no competition anywhere in the marketplace.
It's so disruptive that we have actually been to events where traditional vendors took one look at our Floating Cotton Candy and then didn't even bother to set up their old fashioned equipment. There just wouldn't be any way for them to compete and they immediately recognized this themselves!
This isn't sales hyperbole. Given the incredible markup, combined with the ability to attract customers from a distance, it's not at all unreasonable to expect to generate enough net profit to pay for your Robo JetFloss in a single day.
Of course this assumes a good location with a target rich environment and most likely on a weekend. Otherwise, with less than optimal conditions it might take you 2 days to recapture your initial investment.
Much longer than that and we're going to have to ask if you even remembered to turn on the machine. We're barely joking, because you seriously cannot operate Floating Cotton Candy in public and not make enough money to pay for the machine almost immediately.
In addition, many vendors will actually use the Robo JetFloss in conjunction with their existing equipment, using the draw of the Floating Cotton Candy to attract prospects who will often then purchase traditional packed bags rather than wait for the creation of a custom cone.
In this way, a Robo JetFloss can actually increase profits in two ways:
On top of being incredibly profitable on its own, Floating Cotton Candy has outstanding value as a promotional tool as well, especially if you're located in a highly competitive environment. Many vendors are using the Robo JetFloss strictly to increase traffic to their booths, stands and storefronts.
Not only does Floating Cotton Candy production have visibility up to 20 or 30 yards, but the cones themselves are so unique that every sale becomes a walking advertisement for your establishment, sending curious customers on a hunt to find the source.
Depending on the rest of your menu, and the competitive nature of your marketplace, you could practically give Floating Cotton Candy away (free with some other purchase, of course) and still see your bottom line soar.
