True Cost of Self-Operated Commissary

IS YOUR COMMISSARY MAKING MONEY OR COSTING MONEY?

Click the link below for a simple sheet that can tell you.

Many Jails that operate their own commissary programs believe that it is the most profitable way to go. Just a few years ago this may have true. With higher wages and benefits for in house commissary managers and technology advances that simply the process this is likely to have changed dramatically. Take a moment to consider there are many logistical issues that need to be considered when running a self-operated commissary: 

  • Equipment and software must be purchased on the front end before sales begin
  • Advanced technology that simplifies the commissary process is prohibitively expensive or may not be available at all to a single customer (Kiosks, web order/web deposit systems and phone based commissary requires large expenditures and cutting-edge technical support)
  • Staff must be allocated to run a commissary operation (They must purchase inventory, fill orders, take inventory, deduct purchases from Inmates’ money and track money.)
  • Cash tied up in inventory cost cannot be used for           anything else
  • Must meet proper food storage requirements mandated by the Government
  • Space must be devoted to commissary storage
  • Space availability may not allow a broad product selection (Too small a selection of products is proven to reduce potential sales and profits)
  • To provide a diverse selection of products you may have to deal with as many as 15 to 20 different vendors
