vending machine companiesAt the current time, vending machine companies say that 93% of all vending machines lack cashless options. But, that may change soon. A few of the reasons to go cashless in your future snack machines:

  • More customers. Many people never carry cash. Allowing them to swipe a card instead means that they can always use your machines. Research indicates that sales increase by 30% when you add credit card readers to your machines.
  • It’s a cleaner option. 94% of all dollar bills in the US carry some sort of pathogens.
  • Less vulnerability to theft. Experts say that Americans lose billions of dollars in thefts of cash every year. Cashless vending is a safe and secure alternative.
  • Convenience. When you buy vending machines that offer credit card readers and remote vending management, you can check your profits and inventory without having to physically visit your machine. Log on from home or on the go on your smart phone.

According to the Center for Disease Control, 69.2 percent of adults 20 years of age or older are overweight. Therefore, it is obvious America has a big problem with health and weight. Although eating habits regarding breakfast, lunch and dinner are the most important, what individuals snack on is also very key when trying to reduce weight. Therefore, learning how to choose good food out of a vending machine is a wise idea in order to maintain a healthy weight. Below is a list courtesy of Emily Saunders, a fitness trainer, of bad and good food choices found in typical vending machines:

Bad foods:Combo Vending Machine
All snack cakes, cookies and chips are unhealthy snacks that should be avoided completely. This is due to the fact that this food will cause a spike in blood sugar. In addition, they contain empty calories, which leaves individuals feeling hungry again soon after consuming them. It is also important to not be fooled by foods that “look” healthy such as Fig Newtons or oatmeal cookies, because they are in reality just sugar filled cookies with no nutritional value.

Good foods:
Look for sunflower seeds, beef jerky or bags of peanuts when trying to find healthy vending machine snacks. These food contain protein and will help individuals feel full longer. If individuals have to have something sweet, select a bag of peanut M&M’s, which contains both the sweet aspect and the protein element.

If you think you may buy vending machines and are interested in a vending machine combo, the above information is likely helpful.

Combo Vending MachineWhen it comes time to buy vending machines, you have a lot of options available. Is it best to go with full-sized machines or mini vending machines? Will a dedicated drink or snack machine be a good pick, or should you look at combo drink snack machines? Which will work best depends on the areas where your machines will be hosted. It’s often best to pick the spot, then choose a suitable machine.

  • If you will be placing machines in a gym or an outdoor athletic center, cold drink machines are a good choice. Pick ones that allow you to offer sodas, sports drinks and bottled water.
  • In an office setting where space is at a premium, consider a vending machine combo unit. This will allow you to offer both drinks and snacks while preserving a small footprint.
  • Combo machines are also a good fit for areas that are lower in traffic. The smaller size means lower power use and lower inventory, so, the snacks you stock stay fresh.

Combo Vending MachineIt’s the fodder of office comedy TV shows and movies: the snack machine that fails to give up the product after someone surrenders their coins. There was even a recent news story concerning a man in Des Moines, Iowa who was fired from his job when he used a forklift to lift and drop a vending machine that failed to dispense his candy bar.

Happily, with good planning and careful management, you can keep your snack machines from leaving snacks dangling and customers frustrated and hungry:

  • Keep machines clean. Sticky insides can keep machines from dispensing properly.
  • Periodically test your machines. Each time you visit your machines to collect money and add inventory, do a test vend to make sure everything is in working order.
  • Buy vending machines that offer our Guaranteed Vend Sensor technology. Sensors inside the machine detect whether a snack has dropped and automatically give credit to choose another snack if one vending machine item fails to be delivered.

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.

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.

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?
