  1. Hey All! We're working on our First ADA distributor contract. An ADA in Michigan is an Authorized Distribution Agent. They are the only people we can sell to and use to distribute our product. This particular ADA also functions as a broker and helps sell / promote the product. That is while you'll see those numbers split out. As we navigate this, we'd love some feedback and are willing to share some numbers to benefit the whole. As an ADA -Michigan’s term for an Authorized Distribution Agent ie.. Distributor Delivery Charge $10.00 per case ($7.50 paid to supplier by the MLCC with supplier paying an additional $2.50 to ADA Monthly Storage Fee $0.20 per case per Month (For product older than 90 days) Special Handling Charge $0.75 per case (i.e. handling, repackaging, labeling, coding, returns) As a Broker Commission - 10% per 9L(12 btl) case. Bonus of - 5% per 9L case above X volume. I see the ADA Fee's being in the right ballpark, but maybe a little high. As for Broker Fee's, It seems high. Is anyone else seeing this high of a fee?

    Transport directly to nonprofit event?

    Hi all, We have yet to sign with a distributor, but are hoping to contribute a few bottles to a local nonprofit event. We're in California. A couple questions. Are we allowed to do that? Can we transport it directly? Thanks! Jenny
  3. I'm wondering how much lead time distributors typically need to roll out a new brand. We'd like to have our branding and our marketing strategy as finished as much as possible before talking with potential distribution partners. That said, we don't want to wait too long because that might not allow our eventual distributor enough time to form their own sales strategies for our products once production gets under way. Any thoughts or experiences relating to this subject are welcome and greatly appreciated. Thanks, M.

    Control state broker compensation

    I signed a simple contract with a broker not long ago - they represent and promote our products, and we pay them a fixed % of the selling price (as a broker they don't take possession of the liquor). I guess that I may be a little naive, but I thought that for this payment, they would promote our product at bars, restaurants, and in stores. Now they are proposing a two month program where we would pay additional money for performance: $ for each menu, $ for each new bar restaurant, $ for each display, etc.... My opinion is that this is what I have been paying them for already. I know that programming is normal in the industry, but is it typical for a broker to be paid these incentives on top of the agreed upon rate?
  5. What are some important questions I should be asking a potential wholesaler? Thanks in advance for any help. - Tim
