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.
Buying a machine that dispenses soda is one thing, however finding one that is really good is entirely something different. Buying a soda dispensing machine for the first time requires caution and seeking the recommendations from businessmen already in the line of business helps. Their experience would help them suggest the best dispenser after they consider your line and size of business.
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.
Product Selection - You need to get the right products in front of the right people. People are obsessed with getting great locations but thats not it. A great location will only bring you half of the way. You need to get the right products in front of the people at the business or they will never use your machines. I would go so far as to even say that product selection is more important than the location itself.
