Refer to it as club soda or seltzer water. Seltzer is a healthy alternative to store bought soda since it only consists of standard water in addition to carbonation. My husband and I consume a lot of seltzer and that we went with this seltzer water maker to save money and stop wasting so many plastic bottles. Most of the time whenever an individual has a seltzer maker they are going to be using it for one of a couple of things; creating seltzer water or creating a common carbonated beverage of preference by simply getting syrup bags from the company. By making your own seltzer water aware of the sparkling water maker the expense for each litre begins at just 17 cents; store bought club soda costs at minimum forty two cents for each bottle.
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.
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.
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.
