Hi Don, thanks for your response. Let me ask you, can you find one for me ? I am in retail for last 25 years and I know it is difficult to find that kind of a deal. As a matter of fact I do own one similar location that I currently operate too. I am well familiar witht the complexities of it but like to work with somone one who has that reach and I am sure that there is someone out there who can put it together.

Peter, having done those kinds of deals, I can tell you it is extremely, EXTREMELY rare that you can tap into airports. Stadiums are normally done with master contracts, with people like Aramark - not individuals, unless you go to the minor leagues. Arenas - same way. Colleges are tough and not open to the general market, in most cases. There are tremendous deals with many of them to give the students experience, before the general public. Alumni get preference, in some colleges. Hospitals are a better way to go, depending upon the deal. If you are talking about coffee and snacks, you have a better chance of getting in than you would with some sort of burger or sub place, because again, you are probably competing with the likes of Aramark and similar, mammoth outfits.

In some cases - with hospitals and colleges - it is about relationships. You need to be buddies with the administration or a large contributor to their charitable cause, before they will speak to you about such locations.

Never say never, in these situations. But I can tell you from about 25 years of experience that you would be better off looking across the street from these locations, rather than the enclosed areas, themselves.
