Topic: Food Vending Machines

( And today's special will be..... )

We did have food vending machines in our operation. In most cases we would place a few microwaves in the lunchroom and then install a sandwich/food machine.

In my opinion, these machines never made us money. They require a careful eye on the product expiry dates and the spoilage is higher than most types of vending. The selection of product was also very limited in our area. So why did we get into food vending? Simple! Many of the best volume locations demanded that we offer food vending for them. Many of our competitors wouldn't offer food machines and therefore couldn't get in the door. We would install our food vending machine and microwaves and put up with the extra work because these were usually the highest volume accounts. We would make a huge profit on the big volume from the pop/snack/coffee/bottled water machines. We always considered the food vending machine as a cost of doing business.

Without offering these locations food vending machines we would never been able to obtain them.
