A great place to pick up used machines is Craigslist and eBay. Also make sure to look in your local yellow pages for vending companies. Most medium sized cities have vending companies and they very often have used machines for sale that they are no longer using. One of the main issues though with getting used machines is keeping track of all the different product selections. Getting the product selection right is paramount to running a successful vending business. Thats why I suggest using a vending management solution so you can keep track of all of your different sodas in each machine.
It is ideal to get a soda machine able to make the sort of delicious drinks in huge capacities you need at a very little time while making huge savings making the organization of events such as parties and anniversaries easier and less worrisome. You will never find a season for the healthy and tasty drink since soda is the answer for spring autumn or any other occasion whether the guests want it bitter or sweet.
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.
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.
