Game Preparation "The important stuff"

It's time to talk about the important stuff that really matters when preparing for the season. I haven't got to see one of these machines in action yet but they look awesome.

justification for them to increase price of beer to $8 instead of $7

on that same note, how is $7+ beer anything but greed? profit margin has to be well above 1200%, can someone explain to me how thats not ridiculous? invesco sells 1 million dollars per beer a game, i bet $950,000 is pure profit to the stadium/team. is it "just business"? yea, but at end of the day, you think at some point the super rich, ie owners, would throw a bone to the rest of us and do something that benefits us instead of just taking our cash.

I have extensive experience in sports venue concessions management, as well as movie theater management; we get this question all the time. If the average fan got our P & L statements they wouldn't be asking that question. Yes, a keg of beer is generally marked up about 1000%-1500%. A bucket of popcorn about the same. But when you're paying hundreds of thousands of dollars a month just in rent (not counting utilities, insurance, property tax, wages, advertising, just to name a few), the balance sheet is not as one-sided as you think.

I'll pay the extra cost to avoid the beer lines at Mile High.

Please start a business. Nothing anyone tells you would convince. However experiencing it for yourself would really open your eyes.
