How Much Rent Is Too Much?
(Isle of Wight)
I think I've found a nice spot from where to trade. It's in the car park of our local forest.
I've spoken to the Forestry Commission who look after the forest and they are keen to see my proposal in writing.
But, in the proposal they want to see what percentage of my takings I am willing to offer them for the pitch rental.
And that's the problem, I have absolutely no idea whatsoever what would be a fair offer.
I don't want to insult them with something daft but nor do I want to hand over more than I need to. Can you give me some guidance please?
ps - thanks for the response to my gas/electric certificate question - I have now got those sorted out and working on my hygiene certificate. Who'd have thought there'd be so much to sort out before you even get to flip your first burger.
By the way, we are calling ourselves Flippin' Tasty - I hope it brings a smile to peoples faces when they come to buy from us.
