"I added images to the new VTA50Automatic machines controls to figure what is the best place to install them. The new auto unit is ready to put together. All we have to do it wire the unit, install the thermometer and add the gate valve. Because this unit has an adjustable agitator I will need to run 4-5 rounds for the correct times. Once the times are done we will set them into the computer and with a simple USB from computer to PID we can program all memory banks with out having to program each PID one at a time. So far inquiries and units spoken for have exceeded 25 people"
If you think of 25 buyers at $5000/unit, we are looking at $100,000 in sales right off the bat. This is pretty good for a few months, and barely any promoting. The distributor will be selling very soon, and promotions and advertising will be happening.
I dont see how GNGR couldnt do $1,000,000 (million) in sales this year, 150 Vortex machines.... $750,000, $150,000 in Ad speciality and other chocolate orders and $100,000 in extras, cakes, attachments, etc.
Seems pretty reasonable, but I think GNGR makes even more than that on Ad speciality items, that is a BIG MARKET!
Their distributor will be selling these once the plans are finalized, we will then get a PR telling the world what GNGR has been up to - and life will be good!
Good things will happen with GNGR in 2014.
According to the GNGR facebook page - Grant will be in North Carolina next week to oversee the first production run of VortexVTA50A.
They are also looking to sell 'accessories' for competitor units- that could be a multimillion dollar business alone.
Time will tell on how GNGR will influence the markets.
