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.
In the vending business selling beverages from a soda machine is one of the easiest money makers. You will need to have a selection of different drinks such as bottled water juice and soda. Also needed would be a carefully thought out location to position your machine. Think carefully about the location of the machine because that one decision alone can make or break the business for you.
Vending Management - You need a way to manage your entire vending route. You need to use an online vending management solution to track your business. This is the one point that I see more operators fail on than any other. Good vending management software will let you keep track of which products are selling the best and keep track of your inventory for you. This way you know you need to bring where you need to bring them and when the machines need serviced.
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.
