Quoted from buffaloatx:
As I said, "most" locations won't go for 100%.
Agreed. I did a complete pro/con sheet for this location and a local bowling alley. Included was how honest I thought the proprietor was, how good the location was, how much advertising was done, how secure the site was, how stable the businesses were, whether they sold beer or not, whether the proprietor was a pinball fan or not and revenue splitting.
I don't make much on my 2 machines, mostly I think because Grand Junction Colorado (indeed, all of Western Colorado) isn't a big pinball town. And 2 is the limit, no room for any more.
The big deciders for me was how secure the machines would be which included if people could beat them up. Aman at the Lonely Toy Store is right there guarding the machines so I'm secure knowing they are fine. Only issue is they will get sun this winter. That's OK, nothing lasts forever.
