When you purchase all your beverages from that one supplier you will be paying full price. Another way to go would be to purchase a second hand soda machine so as to see higher profits. Buying used allows you to get a discount off the machine; it could be 50% off the cost. It is sometimes possible to purchase a refurbished soda machine from the distributors at a much lower price that the new machines. Once you own the machine outright you are not restricted as to where you can purchase your supplies. In this way you will be able to buy from any supplier and even take advantage of sales offered by wholesalers. Another possibility is buying your supplies from a supermarket where you may get the beverages at less than the wholesale price.
Airports shopping malls and other strategic locations where there is high people traffic are prime places for soda vending machines. Often when out shopping people want a cool refreshing drink and they dont want to go into a restaurant and sit down. With the beverage vending machine you will find that at certain times of the year business is better than others. Summer is the time when cold soda sells best from the soda vending machines so you do have to be prepared for a slow down in business when winter arrives.
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.

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.
