When you purchase all your beverages from that one supplier you will be paying full price. Another way to go would be to purchase a second hand soda machine, so as to see higher profits. Buying used allows you to get a discount off the machine; it could be 50% off the cost. It is sometimes possible to purchase a refurbished soda machine from the distributors at a much lower price that the new machines. Once you own the machine outright, you are not restricted as to where you can purchase your supplies. In this way you will be able to buy from any supplier and even take advantage of sales offered by wholesalers. Another possibility is buying your supplies from a supermarket where you may get the beverages at less than the wholesale price.
Soda bottling companies often provide the soda vending machines free of charge. However, you do have to sign a contract saying that you will only purchase the supplies for the beverage vending machine from this company, which can cut down on your profits. When you buy from the company, you will receive discounts, such as one free case of soda for every ten cases that you buy. The downside to buying all the sodas and other beverages from the company is that you will pay full price for the supplies.
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.
In an era when we all could use a little extra income, investing in Soda vending machines might be a good way to raise that money. It involves a little time every day, but the returns are considered good, and it is all cash! The problem is: where do you start. Soda vending machines are the machines that probably have the greatest turnover of product each day as long as they are strategically placed. Everyone likes to drink beverages all day long, especially during the hot weather.
