How do you source counter tops? What's the most profitable method of supplying them? What percentage below retail can I get for a small company(probably 2-3 kitchens per year)?
Up to this point I have always had my customers order a counter top from the showroom of whichever supplier they are working with or they already have a supplier in mind. I don't think like a GC all the time so I've been letting this go but I always end up having to be involved in the process so it's time for me to take ownership of the project and make some money too.
I'd rather go through the showroom for ease of sale but I'm doubtful that the pricing is really competitive for going right to the distributor. They problem there is that it's been very hard to get decent pricing from the distributor as a new customer.
