Well then, he should talk to my bud. The Sugarman built his biz on the resorts. He packaged his syrup in little 1-oz bottles and sold them to the ski resorts in bulk for room service, etc. You gotta know Sherman. He wasn't about to go diddling around waiting for tourists to buy a bottle.
Ahhhhh ok, that makes more sense. You make a LOT more selling syrup in little bottles. My friend often has to sell his wholesale in 40 gallon barrels because he just does not know how to find anyone to buy it retail.
If you could ask your friend that would be great. No, my friend has not really asked around much. He has 3 kids and is busy all the time. He's not much of a biz type, more like to stick with the work he does.
