How to Find Locations for Your Vending Equipment

A common question asked by new people getting into the vending business is, “How do I find the best location for my vending machines?” Some new vendors will get permission to place their machine(s) at places such as their own place of business, a relative or a friend’s business or a business where you know the owner. To assist further, we have listed below a number of businesses to consider when placing your machines. Keep in mind, you are not asking the business owner to buy anything. You are providing a FREE service to them, their employees and their customers!

Start small, one machine at a time

Local businesses with 30-50 employees and businesses with a good number of walk-in customers are good places to start. Choose businesses in your area close to your house. A short driving distance from home is ideal.

Tell them about your “Free” Vending Service

Ask for the manager or owner and ask if you can place one of your new Express Combo drink and snack machines in their business at no cost to them. We recommend you dress professionally and take a brochure about the Express Combo to each location. Be sure to let the business know that you will keep your machine filled with all the top brand products including some healthy selections at standard product pricing.

Replacing old machines with the new Express Combo Vending Machines

A good number of businesses will already have old, outdated vending machines. The odds are high that their current vending machine(s) do not accept credit/debit cards and do not have the guaranteed product delivery feature. The Express Combo, however, has all of these features! It is not too difficult to convince a business that you have a better vending program to service their employees and customers.
