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.
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 soda pop maker machine uses refillable Co2 canisters to carbonate your own h2o. The system has a pressure release designed for safety so you cannot over pressure a persons bottle which is also used to get the correct amount of fizz in your water. I highly recommend this kind of machine, makes it far more easy than lugging the seltzer residence from the store. I love creating my very own flavoring for that sodas. On top of that, while using commercial machine to make soda beverages will save persons the stress of heading a great distance to grocers, price of travelling and the possibility of losing a few containers on transportation.
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.
