- Whether you transfer burden of profitability to small business?
-The profit of any business consists of a set of factors. In many respects it will depend on existence of a so-called enterprise vein and desire to reduce the level of expenses. Control of work of the employees is important. For this reason it will be simpler to private trader to operate one or several nearby gas stations, than to partners from large business. The income from shop will be an additional factor — all of us understand that the shop is favorable even in the small settlement, not to mention gas station.
Considering that the location of gas stations transmitted agriculture and en-route, we can confidently say that the income will be higher than the average manager in the region. In general, more than 97% of the number of transmission gas station profitable today, the management of the company. Only a few gas stations, built at the request of local government offices of villages have social status.
