A great place to pick up used machines is Craigslist and eBay. Also, make sure to look in your local yellow pages for vending companies. Most medium sized cities have vending companies and they very often have used machines for sale that they are no longer using. One of the main issues though with getting used machines is keeping track of all the different product selections. Getting the product selection right is paramount to running a successful vending business. Thats why I suggest using a vending management solution so you can keep track of all of your different sodas in each machine.
When youre looking for soda machines you want to get the best possible deal you can. There is a large market for used soda machines and new alike. One of the things you must consider is how you are going to transport the machines. Some brokers actually deliver the machines. For example Sams Club is a great place that has soda machines for sale that also delivers.
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.
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.
