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?
I'm a little (okay a lot) confused about ADA requirements. To what extent does a distillery have to follow them? From what I read it only applies towards "public" areas. So it seems like a tasting room would be considered public, but the rest of the premise would not. What if I don't plan on having a tasting room, and only giving tours? My architect is saying that all my building renovation costs (including boiler and piping) will go towards a 20% maximum to be used towards making the space ADA compliant (handicap bathrooms, handicap ramp etc.). Is this correct?
