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 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.
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.
At one time schools were strategic locations for soda vending machines. With the laws now in force banning these vending machines from schools you may have to rethink the type of products that you want to sell through your beverage vending machine. Soda is not the only beverage and in schools there is a great need for beverages such as fruit juice milk and bottled water. Converting your used soda vending machines to handle these products will still keep you in business.
