Free To Own - How it works

Free-to-Own is a unique concept from Fizzbang Beverages™ that combines all of the benefits of Free-on-Loan but with the great advantage that you OWN the machine after the contracted purchase of syrups.
How it works:

(All pricing is Ex Vat)

Fizzbang Beverages supply & install a brand-new twin-bowl Atomic Ice machine (RRP £1600) with a service, training & POS support package (RRP £960) to the customer; Total RRP is £2560

This is supplied as a discounted FTO package at £2280

The contract agreement is for a minimum 12 month period

Throughout the agreement the customer agrees to purchase a minimum of 50 cases of Atomic Ice syrups at £75 per case along with the relative cups and other consumables.

Once 50 cases have been purchased, the customer has the option to opt-out of the agreement (recommended) and take full ownership of the machine for a nominal admin fee.

The customer is then free to purchase syrups at wholesale prices.

As a guide, the cost per 341ml (medium) portion is 38p.  If sold at a suggested  RRP of £1.25, the  profit on 50 cases is £9,817!

Basic terms:

The equipment must be kept clean & in good condition with the required cleaning & service routines maintained by the customer

There is a minimum opening order of 4 cases of syrup, 1 x box of cups & straws

There is a minimum order of 2 cases per further replenishment orders

The machine remains the property of Fizzbang Beverages until such time as transfer of ownership is complete. During this time only Atomic Ice products are to be used in the machine, any contravention of this will result in the equipment being uplifted and the customer liable to a removal charge.

Fizzbang Beverages will cover service calls whilst the contract is in place. This will cover on-site servicing at 3 monthly intervals & any repairs due to mechanical failure (this does not cover damage due to misuse, error, or neglect by the customer)

Fizzbang Beverages will send a regular summary throughout the agreement & will notify the customer when the 50 case target has been met or, if in our opinion the target appears to be unachievable, at which point Fizzbang Beverages reserve the right to remove the equipment & cancel the agreement (uplift fee may apply), r the customer has the option to purchase the machine outright for a fee relative to the outstanding shortfall of case purchases.
