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.
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.
Purchasing the beverages in this way will give you a greater profit margin. In the past the schools were the best places to position the soda machine. Now that the machine is not allowed in schools you will have to decide on different products to sell in them instead. There is a demand for beverages in the schools. Some are fruit juices milk and bottled water.
Many options are available to you to get the soda machine you select for your business. There are soda bottling companies that will provide the machine without charge. You will be obligated to sign a contract with the company and will also have to agree to buy supplies only from that company. This will not allow you to shop for competitive pricing for your supplies and will lessen your profit. The company will offer incentives when you purchase their product. This may come in the form of a free case of soda when you purchase 12 cases as an example.
