A great place to pick up used machines is Craigslist and eBay. Also make sure to look in your local yellow pages for vending companies. Most medium sized cities have vending companies and they very often have used machines for sale that they are no longer using. One of the main issues though with getting used machines is keeping track of all the different product selections. Getting the product selection right is paramount to running a successful vending business. Thats why I suggest using a vending management solution so you can keep track of all of your different sodas in each machine.
The soda pop maker machine uses refillable Co2 canisters to carbonate your own h2o. The system has a pressure release designed for safety so you cannot over pressure a persons bottle which is also used to get the correct amount of fizz in your water. I highly recommend this kind of machine makes it far more easy than lugging the seltzer residence from the store. I love creating my very own flavoring for that sodas. On top of that while using commercial machine to make soda beverages will save persons the stress of heading a great distance to grocers price of travelling and the possibility of losing a few containers on transportation.
If you have a soda machine on your property and you pay for electricity to run that machine you could be spending a decent amount of money providing electricity to it at times that no one is around. The result is a significant amount of wasted money and energy over the course of a year. In some areas its costs over $500 per year to operate a soda machine. There are a few options to solving this challenge including: removing the lights (delamping) unplugging putting it on a timer and installing VendingMiser.
Purchasing the beverages in this way will give you a greater profit margin. In the past the schools were the best places to position the soda machine. Now that the machine is not allowed in schools you will have to decide on different products to sell in them instead. There is a demand for beverages in the schools. Some are fruit juices milk and bottled water.
