Two weeks ago, I was offered to bid on 23 accounts (gas stations). They are willing to pay $310 per month for basic maintenance and general clean up of trash and continue into the winter with snow removal for the same monthly price (its a year round customer). Problem is, these accounts are currently held by a very good friend, who has children, a big mortgage, two vehicles to pay for etc etc. My situation is, it wouldn't matter to me one way or the other if we land the contracts as both of my vehicles (2002) are paid for, no mortgage or overhead. The contracts that my friend has with these locations are about to expire on friday and they are determined to look elsewhere. My bid is for the same $310 per month per location offering the same services. My friend asked me NOT to bid because this could put him out of business and he will lose his home. I currently work on three other locations owned by the general manager who approached me to bid on these locations......don't know what to do. I offered to take the accounts and in turn, offer my friend 13 commercial accounts I currently manage to offset his loss and he refuses. What to do, what to do?
