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.
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.
Soda bottling companies often provide the soda vending machines free of charge. However you do have to sign a contract saying that you will only purchase the supplies for the beverage vending machine from this company which can cut down on your profits. When you buy from the company you will receive discounts such as one free case of soda for every ten cases that you buy. The downside to buying all the sodas and other beverages from the company is that you will pay full price for the supplies.
Snack and soda machines are one of the best ways to earn an extra income or even completely replace your day job. They provide you with the opportunity to get a great return on your investment while still having enough time to enjoy your life. I have seen many snack and soda machine businesses fail and I have seen a few succeed beyond imagination. There are three things that really separate the winners from the losers. So lets get started.
