At one time, schools were strategic locations for soda vending machines. With the laws now in force banning these vending machines from schools, you may have to rethink the type of products that you want to sell through your beverage vending machine. Soda is not the only beverage and in schools there is a great need for beverages such as fruit juice, milk and bottled water. Converting your used soda vending machines to handle these products will still keep you in business.
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.
If you decide that you want to go into Soda vending machines, you have to do some strategic planning on where you want to place your machines so that they are in high traffic areas. Keep your eye out for new businesses that are opening in the area, and try to get the contract to place your machines in those buildings. Check any place where people work and see if they have vending machines in their break room. Another option would be larger churches who have meetings in their building all week. They may be willing to place a machine in their fellowship area.
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.
