Please Help Me Out On This Business Idea. by OlawaleBammie(m): 10:17am On Jan 14
Good morning to you all, as requested by the topic above please house I will need Ur contribution/help on this matter.

I want to start a business as a side hustle but I know little about the business, the business I am talking about here is distribution of drinks... I.e procuring of drinks from a bottling company and distributing them to the retailers. But my problems are..

1) I don't know which of the drinks category I should start with as a starter (either soft drinks or the other?)

2)The steps required to pull this tru

3) how much should I budget (cost of procuring alone)

4) If things go south (tho God forbid ) is there any way the company can help out??


Please these and many more are what I want to be lectured on from the existing doers of the business .

Some of us may be saying why can't I Google it out, well, something googled are not always how it is in real life, my current job proved this to me more than beyond.

Please house I need Ur help in urgency.

Meet up with coca cola marketers. They have range of coca cola products you can start with and they will put you through. They also come for regular stock assessment and to check to ensure you are doing well.

All the very best!

Each crate of soft drinks u sell u have #100 interest that's been a retailer but selling it single has more profit than whole... Preferably will prefer u go into beer since they have the highest consumers on like soft drinks.. Mind u I don't knw how much interest u get in a beer crate
So make ur choice

They normally put on coca cola branded T-shirts walking around, going to shops. You might have to go to the a big soft drink depot around you and discuss with them.

What kind of drinks do u intend to sell is it bottle drinks or can, is it alcoholic or non alcoholic.

Do u intend to be strictly whole sale or retail?
Re: Please Help Me Out On This Business Idea. by enoch273: 1:26pm On Jan 14
I'll suggest you start up with soft drink, and try to save while at it and still earn up to 10% monthly interest with i-nest by FCMB. Visit the link on my signature to get started.

Strictly wholesale bro


It can be bottled one or can, but if I should go for soft or hard is my concern but I need a less risky one and the one that can survive the wave bearing in mind that I am a beginner .

To me hard drinks are better, alcohol is smhw like drugs it creates it's own demand.

Everybody can sell soft drinks but not everyone can sell hard drinks.

That's y we have lots of liquor stores

Your budget depends on the amount you are willing to put into the business I no know how much u want use start so I can't tell.

I can't be telling u put 1m when ur budget na 200k.

Just go for drinks with high demands, I know say people dae buy hero beer well especially around the east/southsouth, when it comes to gin people buy gordon's alot, when it comes to sachet people buy chelsea sachet, no waste your time buy squadron, also people buy black bullet.

I am giving u a first hand experience as I used to have a shop like this before I left Nigeria
