We develop commissary commission rates for our clients against a variety of considerations including, of course, our own investment requirement and profitability goals. Another important consideration in developing the commission rate reflects what we call our Market Price Philosophy. Since 100% of revenue is generated from resident commissary spending, product pricing must cover the full cost of providing our services—and still be competitive. To ensure that commissary pricing remains competitive within your facility, Swanson bases prices on an annual survey of local and regional convenience store pricing. As a result, pricing is never out of line to your residents, and will positively affect buying decisions as they place orders.
