Questions to Ask about Vending Machines

Many people operate vending machines (those dispensers of candy, coffee, and other goodies) as a way of making extra money. If this sounds like an attractive proposition, you may wish to investigate the subject further. But before you rush off to purchase a coffee or snack vendor, there are some important questions to consider.

  • What kind of vending machines should I buy?
    Vending machines vary considerably, both in their design and profit potential. Gumball machines are typically inexpensive to buy and maintain, both because of their simple mechanical design and the fact that gumballs themselves are quite cheap. Bulk candy machines, which offer a greater variety of candies, have similar benefits. However, it is uncommon to make substantial income with these machines. Soda and snack machines often generate more profits, but they are also more expensive and break down more easily. Soda pop machines, for example, must maintain proper refrigeration levels. Often, machines may be leased instead of bought outright.

  • Should I hire a locator?
    Believe it or not, it is possible to hire a company that specializes in finding locations to install vending machines. This may be an attractive option if you deal with vending machines only on a part-time basis, but it will also present an additional expense.

  • How much commission will I have to pay?
    In many locations you will be allowed to install your machines at no cost. But businesses sometimes demand a percentage of sales made with vending machines installed on their property. This is more likely in high-traffic locations where you may be competing for space. One common strategy to avoid this is to convince the owner that your machine offers an enhancement to the property. Of course, this consideration does not apply if the machine is installed on your own property.

    Since vending machines are often very large and heavy, they can pose a safety risk to consumers if tipped over. Therefore, repair workers play an important role in ensuring a company’s vending machines run smoothly and remain safe to use. Vendors perform routine checks to make sure their machines are stable and do not contain mechanical problems. In addition, companies do routine inspections to make sure their coin operated machines have not been subjected to tampering or fraud. In the U.S., many states have specific safety requirements that must be followed by vending machine operators.

    Along with repairs, employees must regularly restock a machine’s food and beverage supply as well. Workers often pick up food and drinks from suppliers in bulk quantities. These items can range from gumballs and candy, to soda and other snacks. Along with gumballs, snacks and soda, coffee is another common product that is regularly restocked. Workers may also resupply machines with healthy alternatives, such as low calorie sandwiches, organic juices, water bottles and many more products. In addition, businesses that specialize in cigarette vending, rely on workers to restock their tobacco products.

    Vending machines are a popular form of food consumption that fulfill a large range of needs for people around the world. They allow tired office workers to quickly recharge with a cup of coffee or a can of pop. In addition, they can provide children and adults with a sweet snack, such as bubblegum or ice cream. Overall, the sale of food from vending kiosks offer people a quick and easy way to enjoy a wide variety of refreshments and candy items.
