In the vending business, selling beverages from a soda machine is one of the easiest money makers. You will need to have a selection of different drinks such as bottled water, juice and soda. Also needed would be a carefully thought out location to position your machine. Think carefully about the location of the machine, because that one decision alone can make or break the business for you.
Finding the best machine that suits your budget with a high variety of flavors that are most liked by customers is very important; this is most facilitated with getting hold of surveys conducted by various companies. However a search engine like Google could also help get details of companies that do a lot of research and develop soda flavors that give one lucrative income.
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.
Removing the lights in a soda or vending machine reduces the visibility, hurting sales and may only save $50 per year. By simply unplugging, customers may approach the machine and find it out of operation so you have the added hassle of unplugging and plugging in daily. Timers can be installed to regulate the times that a vending machine has power but because timers may shut down a machine while its running through a refrigeration cycle. Shutting down a machine during one of these cycles may increase the amount of required maintenance.
