Business Plan - You need to have a business plan for you snack and soda business or you are destined to fail.

There are so many different variables and you need to figure them out before you go into business. Make a plan that makes sense for you and go with it.
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.
One of the problems with the soda vending machines is that you usually have to make a decision to go with one product per machine. For example if you get a Pepsi machine it will be filled with Pepsi Diet Pepsi Caffeine Free Pepsi Mountain Dew Pepsi zero etc. You would not be able to include 7-up. You would need to have a separate machine for other products or some places they have machines for generic drinks. Also lately with the popularity of energy drinks one almost needs to have a vending machine that includes those drinks and water. There are also machines that are for fruit juices.
If you decide that you want to go into Soda vending machines you have to do some strategic planning on where you want to place your machines so that they are in high traffic areas. Keep your eye out for new businesses that are opening in the area and try to get the contract to place your machines in those buildings. Check any place where people work and see if they have vending machines in their break room. Another option would be larger churches who have meetings in their building all week. They may be willing to place a machine in their fellowship area.
