Topic: Vending Coffee

( Black liquid gold )

When we expanded into vending coffee we had already established a route of snack and soda/beverage machines. It only made sense to add coffee to some of our locations.

The best part of the vending coffee is your markup. Coffee had the highest profit of all the various types of vending we did. The downside of the vending coffee is that these automated machines require constant maintenance and cleaning. We owned many brands of machines and they all worked well if meticulously maintained. But, if we slacked on the cleaning or upkeep we had nothing but problems.

One more reality of the vending coffee: "No 2 customers will ever agree on the type, strength or temperature of their coffee". Make sure you offer the widest selection of cup sizes and choices in a reliable machine. Although the best new coffee vending machines are VERY expensive, a great location and a high profit margin can make for a terrific addition to any vending business.

Vending coffee is a highly profitable, high maintenance business.
