In an era when we all could use a little extra income investing in Soda vending machines might be a good way to raise that money. It involves a little time every day but the returns are considered good and it is all cash! The problem is: where do you start. Soda vending machines are the machines that probably have the greatest turnover of product each day as long as they are strategically placed. Everyone likes to drink beverages all day long especially during the hot weather.
Switching out the soda and replacing that product with others will be a way to continue to profit from the soda machine. Other locations that are strategic places for locating your machine are airports the shopping malls. All these are high traffic areas ad there ideal for the machine. The biggest challenge is finding the most strategic location. The machine will be a welcome sight to shoppers who are thirsty and do not want to go to a restaurant to satisfy that thirst. Business with the soda machine is better at some times of the year than at other times. The best time for the selling of cold soda through the soda machine id in the summer and the slowest time is in the winter. The biggest hurdle is finding a location that will be the most profitable for the type of drink or snack machines you will offer.
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.
Vending Miser on the other hand eliminates the hassle of unplugging the machine and eliminates the concern about shutting down a machine during is refrigeration cycle. It has been proven to save a significant amount of energy in various locations. Vending Miser requires no modification to the existing vending machine and can be used almost all soda machines. Vending Miser simply plugs in line with the soda or vending machines energy cord and the outlet. It has a motion/occupancy sensor (Passive Infrared Device) mounted above the machine and if no one is around for 15 minutes the machine will turn off the machine. But before shutting the machine down Vending Miser determines if the machine is running a refrigeration cycle and will not shut down during a refrigeration cycle.
