    Default Looking for pubs to site our machines.

    I am launching our golf ball vending machine in the new year and would like to hear from any publican interested in having a machine sited.
    I am prepared to offer a generous commission of 30p per ball sold in return for your hospitality.
    If you would like to view our machines which can be free standing or wall mounted please visithttp://www.tilly-missgolf.com
    There is no charge attached to any publican who site's our machine, i first trialed the machine in 3 various locations in Luxembourg initial trial was slow for around 6-7 weeks, then it was for some reason very popular vending over 500 balls between the 3 outlets.
    Our machine is the first of its kind in the country,i have spoken with vending operators who tell me this has never been done before,so i have taken the steps to trademark our brand in 3 classes which are now in the process of completion.

    Took a trip to see family in the Cotswolds and decided to do some cold calling on a few selected venues,the response has been fantastic with 4 installs guaranteed,we have a further 5 venues who quickly looked at the machine,but due to the nature of the outlets being so busy have asked us to call back monday which my brother in law will do tomorrow morning,we also have 2 hotels to revisit who both liked the concept,but again to busy to properly sit and talk.
    I would like to thank everyone we met,the comments were superb and not one single negative comment,the owner of a club actually wanted me to fit the machine there and then as they have there own golf society.
    Tomorrow will see the machines installed and hopefully some pictures will follow,i have asked my brother in law to get a picture of the machines sited.
    So many people were out and about the place was heaving the pubs were 4 or 5 deep what a nice surprise to see so many people out enjoying the weekend, we had a great time and the both of us finally arrived home at 02:15 am this morning,we took the car home and went in a local pub and got on the drink,god almighty the head was banging this morning but a good shower and a huge plate of bacon sarnies and a walk with tilly in the lovely countryside soon put us right
