Also, we take pride in staying in relationship with our customer throughout the life of the machine in order to answer any questions they have about their equipment.

Vending is all about convenience. Vending makes it easy for your customers to get what they want. Your customers will be attracted to your machine because what they want has found them! The vital role for you as a vendor is to figure out what it is the public wants in your machine. Like any business you will need to determine what products are in the highest demand from your target market. The following information in this article is from an Independent Vendors Association published booklet titled Vending the Right Way.

An important first step in determining which items to sell in your vending machine is to consider your location’s demographic. What time of the day they will be around your machine? What is the age, gender, ethnicity and culture of the people that will be near your machine the most? Will they be there early in the morning? Will people be needing lunch or dinner there? There are no hardline rules for which gender or age will buy a specific item, but there are some general principles that can be helpful when stocking your vending machine. More women prefer diet drinks, candy, pastries, as well as low calorie/health conscious snacks. Men can gravitate toward salty snacks, snack cakes, chips, crackers and spicy flavors. In general, more younger people tend to prefer more non-chocolate candy items, “extreme” flavors like jalapeño, energy drinks and Mountain Dew.

Leaving a refreshment survey at your locations once in a while is a helpful way to engage your market to better understand what the product demand is. Preparation and research is helpful, but trial and error is also often times necessary when purchasing items to sell in your vending machine. Carefully keep track of what is selling and not selling from your machines so you can adjust accordingly. eVending is always here to help you with all your vending endeavors.

What are 3 Vending Machines you wish your office had?

3 Vending Machines I Wish My Office Had

 

So here are the 3 Machines we wish we had in our offices

Freshly Baked Pastries

1. Fresh Pastries – because who wouldn’t love the smell of freshly baked pastries in the morning?! Or who can turn down some out-of-the-oven hot croissants at any time of the day for that matter?

 

Hot Soup

2. Hot Soup – some days, all we want is some hot soup to get us through the afternoon. Especially in the Midwest, we’d definitely appreciate this machine during our long cold months

Emergency Gifts

3. Emergency Last-Minute Presents – just throwing this one out there, but I’m sure every once in a while we’ve forgotten about someone’s birthday, anniversary, or some celebration one way or another. Wouldn’t it be neat if we could just grab something from this machine on our way out of the office, without having to stop somewhere else and wait in the long checkout lines after work?

 

So what are your 3 picks? Share it in your own post and tag us in it to let us know!

Vending Machines and Their Development Alongside Technology

April 28th, 2014 | Posted by DT in Combo vending machines - (Comments Off on Vending Machines and Their Development Alongside Technology)

Modern vending machines were first introduced to the world in London in the early 1880s as a means of dispensing post cards. Throughout the years, vending machines have evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of patrons. Read below for some of the changes that vending machines have undergone over the years:

Product: One major change in vending machines are the products that they dispense. Drinks, snacks and candy have been the standard fare in America for years. However, in the past, cigarettes, stamps and postcards, as mentioned above, were dispensed using vending machines. Today, vending machines offer healthy food options for individuals wishing to make better food choices. This could include mini vending machines that offers fruit or combo drink snack machines that offer healthy snacks and waters. In addition to the changes in the type of food being dispensed, there are now vending machines that provide access to office supplies, medical supplies and many other items that were never dispensed using a vending machine in the past.

cashless drink vending machinePayment type: In addition to product options, vending machines have also changed the way in which patrons can pay for products. In today’s cash-less society, many individuals do not carry dollar bills or change. To meet this need, vending companies have installed cashless payment applications that allow patrons to pay using their credit or debit card. The information above reveals how the vending machine industry has changed to keep up with products patrons want and to allow them to pay in ever-changing methods.

NFC – The Future of Vending Machines

April 7th, 2014 | Posted by DT in Combo vending machines - (Comments Off on NFC – The Future of Vending Machines)

Cashless Vending Machine SoftwareImagine walking up to a bank of combo drink snack machines, keying in your selection and then, instead of hunting for change, simply tapping your smartphone against the machine. Sound far-fetched? It’s actually one major possibility of vending’s future.

NFC-enabled phones — that is, phones capable of near field communication — are increasingly used for swapping contacts, exchanging data, and, now in Japan, paying for items vended by new, NFC-compatible machines. The first NFC vending machines have been installed in Tokyo, and allow Android users to approach a kiosk to shop for exclusive free and paid apps.

The advance makes a lot of sense. With the rise of digital payment systems like credit cards, debit and direct deposit, fewer and fewer people carry cash. Vending machine companies are already adapting to this trend by offering machines with credit card readers. Since most people always carry their phones, why not take advantage of this new convenience?

Savvy vending machine owners are always looking for new ways to expand their income and simplify their business lives. The next time you are ready to buy vending machines, come to us for cutting-edge equipment.
