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.
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.
Seltzer water is liked by men and women, as it is a great thirst quencher. SodaStream offers soft drinks as well as seltzer water enthusiasts a simple, great tasting and environmentally friendly option to canned refreshments. Every sparkling water company is known for its flavor, taste and quality. Making bubbly water as well as soft drinks is simple. Turn plain tap water in to sparkling water in under A few seconds, with no clean-up. Appreciate the freshness and ease of homemade soda and protect environmental surroundings simultaneously.
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.
