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.
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.
Buying a used soda vending machine is one way that you can realize higher profits. You can save up to 50% of the cost of the machine when you buy used. Most times the vending machine distributors have refurbished soda vending machines at a much lower cost than that of new machines. When you own the beverage vending machine yourself, you can purchase your products wherever you want. This allows you to take advantage of sales offered from various wholesalers and quite often you can get the soda you need at the supermarket for less than wholesale price. When you restock your used soda machine in this manner, you will have higher profits.
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.
