$0 Down, with 0% Interest for 12 months (WAC)

March 6th, 2019 | Posted by Matthew Shattuck in Vending machine business | Vending machines | Vending machines for sale - (Comments Off on $0 Down, with 0% Interest for 12 months (WAC))

eVending is hoping to help increase your cash flow this spring by offering a special $0 down, with 0% interest for 12 months (WAC) promotion. Jumping on board with eVending this month is a very cost effective strategy to add extra cash to your business. Maybe you’ve thought about vending and when to start, now is a great time. Interest rates steadily climbed in 2018 and this year they will likely rise as well, so now is a great time to use our $0 down, with 0% interest for 12 months (WAC) promotion.

In the beginning of 2019 Bankrate noted regarding interest rates, “Uncertainty looms ahead as we transition into 2019. But this remains clear: Borrowing costs – at least for now – are still going up.” After four interest rate hikes in 2018 there’s likely to be at least 2 in 2019 according to the article. At the end of January, Kiplinger stated that  the Federal Reserve will hold off on raising interest rates until June, but to still expect an increase later in 2019. As we moved through February the timeline for an interest rate increase was not decided. The Wall Street Journal quoted Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell February 26th, speaking to lawmakers in the Senate Banking Committee, “With our policy rate in the range of neutral, with muted inflation pressures and with some of the downside risks we’ve talked about, this is a good time to be patient and watch and wait and see how the situation evolves.” Most experts seem to think that interest rates will increase this year but are uncertain exactly when and how much.

What you can count on this year are quality vending machines and the best customer service from eVending. Our March financing special is just the icing on the cake to our product. We’ve been in the vending industry for over 80 years and continually trusted for our American made vending machines.

For more information on our $0 down, with 0% interest for 12 months (WAC) special call us today at 1-888-568-4896.

eVending takes great pride in manufacturing vending equipment right here in the United States. Des Moines, Iowa is home to our manufacturing plant employing some of the hardest working Americans we know. There are important benefits to manufacturing in the United States.

Providing jobs by manufacturing in the U.S. is an important benefit that should not be overlooked. According to the National Association of Manufacturers there are nearly 12.5 million manufacturing workers in the United States, accounting for 8.5% of the workforce. The Alliance for American Manufacturing notes that between June 2017 and June 2018, 285,000 manufacturing jobs were created. Manufacturing jobs are very important for our economy as a whole, and on a individual level, certain demographics rely heavily on jobs within the manufacturing sector and this sector provides millions of Americans with stable employment.

When businesses manufacture in America it is much easier and cost efficient to transport their products to retailers and consumers. Plus, it takes a significantly shorter amount of time verses waiting for container shipments from overseas.  Popular Mechanics talked with different American manufacturers and found that it is often more cost effective to ship their products from the U.S than accept cheaper labor overseas. They also found that manufacturing in the U.S. helps them keep a closer eye on the market and better connect with the consumer.  An employee from Stihl said “Manufacturing here gives us the ability to quickly and easily adapt to changing supply and demand and respond to the customer with new innovations.”

eVending believes strongly in the American labor force and is dedicated to making products in the U.S. Manufacturing in the U.S. helps eVending have a closer pulse on the market in order to adapt when necessary and eliminate costs associated with shipping products overseas.  Take a tour of the eVending plant and get to know the company better.

State of Vending Machine Operators Industry in the United States

August 21st, 2018 | Posted by Ajax Union in Buy vending machines | Vending machine business | Vending machine sales | Vending machines for sale - (Comments Off on State of Vending Machine Operators Industry in the United States)

A long trend of declining revenue has made for a slow decade for the Vending Machine Operator industry in the United States. Within the past five (5) years revenue has declined each year except for 2012. According to IBISWorld Inc. revenue has decreased at an annualized rate of 0.8% to about $7.3 billion within the past five years, and a 1.1% decrease so far in 2016. The status of the industry has been a result of changes in the eating index, new nutritional restrictions, and the rise of micro markets and convenience and grocery stores among other things.

Although the outlook may be somewhat discouraging, with downward revenue trends being expected to continue, there is a silver lining as these decreases are expected to occur at a slower rate. Over the next five year period, industry revenue is expected to decrease at a rate of 0.6% to an estimated $7.1 billion, according to IBISWorld. In the coming years, key external drivers will both positively and negatively affect the industry’s profit margin; these include an increase in per capita disposable income, a rising healthy eating index, and rising prices for corn and sugar.

Changing laws pose a big threat to industry operators. Since its implementation in 2014, the USDA’s Smart Snacks in School has introduced new challenges for operators who have machines in primary and secondary schools. The nutritional restrictions have created a limited selection that operators can supply, and unfortunately the approved items are not popular among the students. These restrictions have caused many operators with school locations to experience a 30-40% decrease in revenue. If more laws similar to these continue to be passed some vending operators will be forced to find healthy selections that will be profitable, or exit this industry segment.

In response to the decreasing sales from snack, food, and beverage machines the industry has turned some of its attention to using technology to generate sales, as well as continuing to pursue non-traditional machine markets. As it stands in 2016, of the $7.9bn in the industry, movies and games has 29.8%, food has 29.6%, beverage has 29.9%, and other products have 10.7% according to IBISWorld.

Technology such as touch screens, cashless / mobile payment, and remote monitoring systems will help companies are the future and will create a more enticing customer experience which will hopefully drive sales. Recent advances in technology will help to improve operators’ profit margins, as they will be able to monitor machines more closely and make decisions to eliminate underperforming machines.

Competition / Major Players
IBISWorld determined the market share concentration in the industry to be medium with the top four industry operators being estimated to represent 47.1% of total industry revenue, the remaining 52.9% being held by small to medium sized companies. Major players with the largest market share are Outerwall Inc. (21.2%), Compass Group PLC (12.5%), and Aramark Corporation (9.0%).

Over the five years leading up to 2016, market share concentration has been on the rise as costs continue to increase while revenue declines. IBISWorld determined the most important key success factors for businesses in the industry are:
• Having an exclusive sales contract
• Ability to pass on cost increases
• Economies of scale and scope
• Proximity to key markets
• Easy access for clients
Internal competition in the industry is high and the trend is steady, according to IBISWorld. More and more companies are beginning to diversify the products they offer, as well as changing the machines to cater to the rising healthy eating index. IBISWorld says that sleek, well-branded machines with easy customer interfaces and technology will help spur revenue growth for operators.
Overall, the industry outlook has been looking up as the continual decline in industry revenue is expected to slow. Improvements in technology will give operators tools to remain profitable. Industry companies need to continue to focus on meeting the demand of healthy vending and embracing technology to drive efficiencies and increased sales.

EnvisionWare Library Vending

eVending is always interested in new and unique ways of utilize vending technology, and a library system in Oklahoma has announced that they plan to launch a vending service that collects and vends library books outside of normal library hours.

This will be the nation’s first 24-hour automated library vending machine and is able to hold over 400 books, audiobooks and DVDs. In addition to dishing out good reads, these machines are also able to store up to 1,000 returned books and other items. In a time when libraries often lack to budget and funding for long operating hours and are frequently understaffed, vending machines like these could provide a viable solution.

These library vending machines from EnvisionWare can also be used outside of library facilities to give people more access to books and media at other popular locations throughout a community. The size of these machines does make it a major installation, but it is still smaller than opening up an entire new branch of a library.

Vending, whether its for food and drinks like snack machines or any other service, are all about offering convenience and these new library vending machines definitely deliver!
