So I have an offer from a wine shop that wants to have me sub-lease a space in their store to set up my table with some display cakes, brochures, portfolio etc and maybe sell products (cupcakes, cake pops, choc-covered Oreos) as well.
They are giving a price of $500/month and said I'd have to get my tables and everything to set up a display and they will market for me, generate interest, and possibly have products for selling at their weekly wine tastings (have about 100 people attend that). They would add my products to their POS system in a separate category and give me the amount for whatever product sells.
I am not too keen on doing this because the risk will be entirely mine. I am more interested in selling them products at a wholesale price, or something slightly lower than what my retail price is, and have them sell it. They also do gift baskets and carry items like cheese, biscotti, chips, crackers, so my products could be a good fit.
What would you all advise? Thank you!!
Oh, and I am licensed, inspected and insured, so hopefully, it shouldn't be an issue?
