Vending in the News: IKEA Shows Off New Machines

November 27th, 2012 | Posted by Ajax Union in Vending machines for sale - (Comments Off on Vending in the News: IKEA Shows Off New Machines)

eVendingAs we mentioned last week, the vending industry is making some truly great strides when it comes to creating the machines of the future. More and more everyday products that you would not expect are winding up in vending machines all over the world, redefining the very concept of the classic combo drink and snack machine. Swedish furniture giants IKEA are one of the latest companies to get in on the trend, expanding their reach to a whole new audience.

We know what you may be thinking, and no, IKEA has not found a way to cram couches and bookcases into a metal machine. Instead, they have come up with a very clever way to market the upcoming launch of their Winnipeg store in Canada. The furniture company has placed several big yellow vending machines selling snacks and IKEA gift cards in various hotspots around the city. The bottom of each machine reads “Opening November 28th” to promote the new store. This is some truly fantastic marketing that vending machine companies should take note of, though we would not be surprised if these machines will actually dispense said furniture sometime in the future.

Feeling inspired by this? Looking to expand the reach of your business or simply earn some guaranteed pocket change? We have some excellent vending machines for sale to get you started!

A Brief History of Vending Machines

November 12th, 2012 | Posted by Ajax Union in Vending machines for sale - (Comments Off on A Brief History of Vending Machines)

eVendingMost people have used vending machines for so long it is hard to imagine a world without them. That makes sense because vending machines have existed longer than most of our lifetimes. Although the combo drink and snack machines we see today have come a long way, the vending industry actually has a rich and interesting history.

While there possibly could have been machines dispensing holy water in Egyptian temples in 215 BC, the first commercial vending machines were invented in London in the 1880s to sell postcards. Around the same time, English publisher Richard Carlisle created a machine for vending books. America’s first vending machine came in 1988, when the Thomas Adams Gum Company installed tutti-trutti gum machines on train platforms. The iconic round gumball machines we still see today were created later, in 1907. Horn & Hardart had a similar idea in 1902 when they opened a restaurant run entirely on coin-operated machines. Finally, the drink vending machines that we know and love today took their first big steps during the 1940s thanks to Vendorlator Manufacturing Company.

After looking back at the history of the vending industry, one glance at our current vending machines for sale reveals a true testament to how far vending services have come. Our company has roots in the vending business since the beginning, so it is no surprise that we currently offer the products of the future.

If you follow eVending or are a current customer, you already know we have some of the industry’s best vending machines for sale. Whether you just purchased one of our combo drink and snack vending machines or are looking to invest in one, let us look at the variety of establishments that can benefit from our products.

There are plenty of obvious businesses that can easily generate extra money with the help of a vending machine. Schools, offices, fitness centers, and just about any establishment with heavy public traffic are all no-brainers when it comes to adding a snack machine. But what about some less common ones? Even if you run a small grocery and think you generate enough business within your shop, a vending machine near the exit of your store or outside of it can prompt customers to make some impulse purchases that will help you profit. Do you have a home office or simply have a high frequency of house guests? Why not add a vending machine to your own home? Aside from the fun novelty of having your own machine, you can make a little extra money from your hungry friends and associates.

These are just a few of the endless applications for our top-of-the-line vending products. Between our advanced Futura machines and our more compact mini vending machines, there is no business too small or large for our services.

Go Cashless

buy vending machinesIn such a technologically advanced age, it is surprising anyone carries cash anymore. In a few more decades, physical currency may become obsolete. There are already talks of getting rid of coins. So what does this mean for vending machines? Well, many vending machines for sale are already making the switch to cashless, or rather, they accept both cash and debit/credit cards.

Utilizing one of our vending machines for sale that accepts credit and debit cards will open up your customer base. If most of the people you know rarely carry cash, do you expect them to ever have enough to buy something  from a vending machine? Obviously not. With a variety of payment options, you will never miss a potential sale. In a world that is already seeing other financial solutions, you, too, should stay ahead of the curve. Card-accepting machines also allow you to place vending machines in areas that might not have generated many sales before because of cash-only options.

eVending is proud to offer a wide selection of machines to meet customers’ needs, as well as offer flexible financing options. In the blink of an eye, you will have a vending machine fully stocked and ready to offer food and beverages to your customers!

A Variety of Vending Options

buy vending machinesAt eVending we are proud to offer a great selection of vending machines for sale, for both small and large vending solutions. What you choose to stock the machines with, though, is entirely up to you. Most customers choose the typical snacks: chips, candy, crackers, soda, water, etc. With all the concern about health and obesity in America, customers should think about putting in a variety of options to please everyone.

Choosing to go either all healthy or all unhealthy is a poor choice. Those watching their food intake will be inclined to go elsewhere for a quick snack–a lost opportunity. Likewise, sometimes we want to indulge in a sweet treat or soda. Variety truly is the spice of life and you want to keep customers coming back, especially if the combo vending machine is going to be in an office. Sometimes employees need an energy boost and do not have time to run out of for a full meal. That “boost” may be a craving for a Snickers or for a healthy granola bar. Can you supply them?

We will provide quality machines, but it is up to you to offer the right food. Our machines are equipped to handle an assortment of bottles and cans of beverages, various size snacks, and even pastries and other food.
