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.
The machine recommended for a small restaurant may be quite different from one that is recommended for an amusement park or a big hotel. Again the type and size of a dispenser of soda would also depend on the number of sodas one wants to be dispensed from the system; a hotel having a bar may need more number of dispensers and a bigger size than one in a roadside restaurant. The size and right choice would also depend on the number of clients and also the long term business plan that one has.
Business Plan - You need to have a business plan for you snack and soda business or you are destined to fail. You need to know if you are buying used or new machines, combo or individual, etc. You need to know if youre going to vend cans or bottles. There are so many different variables and you need to figure them out before you go into business. Make a plan that makes sense for you and go with it.
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.
