    Arcade on Site?

    I've got an old video arcade that I was thinking of putting in the local Takeaway shop (if he's keen that is).
    Question is, what is the usual % split between venue/operator?
    I'm a home collector/enthusiast so not sure
    Cheers,

    I think the standard is usually 50/50 but negotiation is the key.

    Is that 50/50 of the total or 50/50 after parts? Just thinking the latter would encourage the site owner to look out for the machines more?

    Make sure you have public liability & insurance in case someone gets hurt/killed by your machine or it catches fire & burns the shop down. Sadly it's a real possibility you need to consider.

    wise words. putting the same thing another way. make sure you realise you're going to be a real business with all the overheads and liabilities that come with it. Its not as easy as it looks.

    Good point - never would have thought of that...
