Best maintenance outfit for lots of fast food stops, lots of highway miles.

    LOL...You win.

    Even though I never said they didn't have enough power to engage the blades either.

    PS You do know that enclosed trailers and box trucks have vents? Or, depending on the ramp, you don't even have to close the back door? We don't, we leave them wide open.

    PPS Thanks for playing.

    PPPS Why do they work for Brandon?????

    I don't know if you 2 are playing or not but don't get my thread whacked! LOL I need the advice to keep coming. This fast food stuff is a different animal for us.

    One of us is trying to provide helpful input based on a wide range of real life experiences with both options.

    WE have Walkers
    BUT they don’t go to BK
    Turf is small , I’ll shaped and up big curbs
    BK has internal people to pick up cig butts , they’re cheap, don’t want to pay for extra services

    Still say just a pick up truck and aluminum ramps in the back
    Minimal equipment
    Minimal space
    Minimal fuel consumption
    Minimal investment

    The fast food thing is unlikely to have longevity

    I’ve had ALL the BKs I can reach for 7 years, but that’s far from “normal”

    Surprisingly they have been with their previous company 10 years, but they are getting downright sloppy. I don’t know, hopefully it isn’t a bad decision, the money seems right, however. I like the idea of a challenge, something new. At any rate if it’s bad I always have a good cancellation clause. What are good margins on the contract for something like this? 20% 30%?

    Is it Bojangles? I know they have been with the same company in the area for awhile.
