How many bottles??
I know I will get a range of answers depending on a lot of factors but generally speaking, how many bottles would someone be looking to purchase if they were starting a new juice brand?

RE: How many bottles??
Well it really depends on a few factors. How many different flavors you have? In which sizes are you selling at? Are you selling online or locally? How well marketed is your juice?

Usually when first beginning I would highly recommend to make each batch fresh. Unless you have a lot of business at startup making large quantities of one batch may not be profitable. You have to keep in mind unless your selling a certain size bottle and a certain nic/pg/vg level every bottle may be different from the last.

RE: How many bottles??
Depends on anticipated sales and volume of mixes.

Probably thousands rather than hundreds.

Say 4 different flavours at 5 different nicotine strengths - that's 20 bottles already for one bottle of each.

If you mix once a week and sell 10 bottles a day, you probably want of the order of 1500 bottles at each mix. You will have a lot of juice to store while you start up.

The real thing here is whats your sales looking like as is? You can be given a hundred different answers but none of them may be right without known your anticipated sales.

Thanks for the input so far but let me clear this up a bit.  I can supply bottles for juice companies but every time the factory goes into production they pump out about 5k-10k bottles per run.  I started this thread to get a better idea of what size company I should be targeting.  I was wondering if new companies would be able to use my packaging company if they had to order 5k bottles at a time.

Ah right.

Makes more sense now. I'd reckon that most juice producers would not be worried by 5k bottles at a time.
