Vendor Expenses!

From our experience, we believe most operators of Mini Claw Businesses will generate about a 45% Profit after all expenses.  So for example if your claw business generated $100k gross income, you will be left with $45k as profit.  After Taxes, about $35k.

Maintenance and Repairs: Regular maintenance and occasional repairs to keep the machines in working condition.
Prizes and Toys: Purchasing prizes and toys to fill the claw machine.
Refilling Supplies: Costs associated with regularly refilling the machine with toys and prizes.
Electricity: Powering the machines requires electricity, so consider the cost of energy consumption.
Location Fees: If you place your mini claw machines in a business or arcade, you might need to pay a fee or share revenue with the location owner.
