Finding a location and purchasing a vending machine is only part of building a successful vending business. It is also crucial that you choose the right snacks to go into your vending equipment based on your location’s demographic in order to ensure your business is as successful as it can be. Follow along as we break down the most popular vending products of each generation.

Generation Z

If you think Gen Zers are going to consume copious amounts of pop products, think again. While this generation does enjoy a beverage that gives them energy, they are more likely to consume coffee products, as opposed to popular pop products that we have seen previously. Additionally, this generation often turns to smoothies and sports drinks. As Gen Zers begin entering college, these are the types of products they will be looking for on college campuses.

If your location is mainly comprised of Generation Z, we recommend installing the Coffee Express Hot Beverage Vending Machine. It provides customers with gourmet coffee and hot beverage options with coffee shop quality. 

Millennials

When it comes to filling your vending machine at a location that is highly populated by Millennials, such as an apartment building or some offices, consider what is going on around you. According to a study, Millennials are influenced by the opinion of others. If there is a snack or beverage that is circling the web, chances are, Millennials are dying to get their hands on it. Another great option is to fill your vending machine with healthy snack and beverage products.

Instead of having two separate vending machines with one filled with snacks and one filled with drinks for Millennials, we recommend installing our most popular machine, the Futura Combo Vending Machine. Millennials will be able to purchase their favorite healthy snacks and beverages, all from one vending machine.

Baby Boomers

When it comes to appealing to the older generation, such as Baby Boomers, it is important to note that their palettes are not the same as a Gen Z or a Millennial. In fact, many Boomers are searching for snacks that are low in sodium and high in protein. Additionally, while Gen Zers are turning to coffee, Baby Boomers are in search of a beverage with little to no caffeine. 

For locations with a high population of Baby Boomers, we recommend installing one of our newest vending machines, the Elite Series Snack 6W. With up to 71 selections, customers will love the variety of low-sodium, high-protein snacks and food products that this machine has to offer.

When building your vending business, consider the demographic that your vending machine will be placed in order to fill your machine with the correct products. For more information, contact eVending at 800-944-5524.

Not too long ago there were dark times for snack-eaters. You might remember–perhaps you had a 10-minute moment between classes, or maybe you had to suffer an abbreviated work break. Whatever the case, you were thirsty. So, in that brief respite during the work week, you happened across one of the ordinary snack machines: an oasis right there in the hallway!

Feebly, you fed it your dollar into the slot and looked into the glass. No, wait–this cannot be right. This machine only has cans? Or a different time: Only bottles?

Yes, we remember those times too, the sad days when ounces reigned over our spare change and dictated how much we could drink. We remember, and that is why we decided to do something about it.

Step aside machines of yore and meet the Futura, one of our premier combo drink snack machines. Gone are the days of drinking more or less than what you wanted. When you use a Futura vending machine, you get exactly what you pay for because our machines can carry both cans and bottles. A 12-oz root beer? You got it. A 16-oz green tea? Sure. With our special line of Futura machines, you have freedom of choice. Finally.

buy vending machinesFor more than 80 years, vending machines have been our specialty. In that time, our industry of choice has seen its share of innovations. From early coin-operated gumball machines to the ubiquitous cigarette dispensers of the 1940s, to finally the combo drink snack machines of today, eVending has thrived through it all. One of our latest breakthroughs is the development of environmentally friendly snack machines.

Because the nature of our business demands constant energy, we wanted to make sure our products were efficient without compromising quality. Our engineers have implemented the latest in electrical, lighting, insulation, and refrigeration technology to ensure our vending machines not only meet market standards, but exceed them with state-of-the-art features. These include long-lasting LED lighting, airtight urethane insulation, and wireless access to cut costs on driving.

In addition to these innovations, our electrostatic paint undergoes an extensive pre-wash procedure that recycles water for several stages and recovers 99.9% of unused paint for subsequent parts. Our dedication to compact and functional design also allows for low power consumption, with an average rate of only 2.5 Amps. We not only design eco-friendly vending machines, but have created a building process that is eco-friendly in itself! How is that for refreshing?

Snack MachineWhen you think of a vending machine, you would most likely picture a large black or gray machine with a glass from and some buttons, housing shelves of delicious snacks and beverages. Candy bars, small sandwiches, chips and bottles of water or soda have become standard vending-fare for most combo drink snack machines.

What if your vending machine vended items that weighed up to 10 pounds? A community in North Dakota has recently had two Shop 24 machines installed. Hard to miss, these vending machines are the size of small bedroom and vend almost anything you would find in a convenience store.

These giant machines have already been implemented on college campuses and in office buildings, but for residents in North Dakota, these machines offer an alternative to making a long trip to larger stores. The machines vend a variety of items including food, beverages, cleaning and laundry supplies, and DVDs.

While most office buildings, malls, schools and other locations you would expect to find standard snack machines, typically do not have a large demand for laundry detergent or liter-bottles of soda, the convenience of automated stores is very apparent for small communities. While impressive, the size of the machines also pose and issue for buildings looking to install them.

Offering exciting new products or fan favorite items, introducing new technology to your machine or giving it a graphics overhaul will probably generate some buzz about your machine, but there are a few phrases that come up more than any others when it comes to vending machine.

“The machine at my money” and “The vending machine didn’t give me what I wanted” are, unfortunately, two common phrases heard at vending machines around the world.

Not that long ago, biometric technology was only seen in sci-fi or spy movies. Technology that allows us to scan a fingerprint or eyes, detect specific faces through cameras or access and use computers with our hands and eyes.

Now, biometric technology, or the identification of humans by their characteristics or trains by technology, is becoming so commonplace that it is even incorporated into our cell phones. Finger print scanners are one of the most popular forms of biometric technology and are used mainly for authenticating access to devices or programs and as a replacement for passwords.

While the debate of whether biometrics are a secure replacement for traditional passwords or security measures is on-going, there is a wide range of uses for biometrics that we can use every day to make our lives easier and our daily tasks more efficient.

Combo drink snack machines can even benefit from these exciting new technologies. Just a few months ago, eVending posted about a coffee manufacturer promoted their products with a vending machine that used facial recognition to detect when someone in front of the machine yawned.  Things like voice recognition or facial recognition could provide personal greetings, payment options or selection recommendations for patrons.

snack machinesA popular business mantra, location, location, location, also assists vending machine owners in making a profit. Finding the right spots takes a bit of research, but the investment yields big rewards as vending machine owners take advantage of great locations.

  • Look for Foot Traffic: A vending machine combo located near a bustling train station or in a major hospital receives more business than one that sits in a secluded spot away from foot traffic. Savvy business owners research locations and collect data before strategically placing their combo and snack machines along busy routes.
  • Stock Waiting Areas: Bored people eat, which makes waiting rooms an ideal location for compact mini vending machines. These small machines take up little room, yet they potentially bring in steady income for vending business owners. Suggested waiting areas include medical offices, municipal buildings, shopping centers, colleges, churches and post offices.
  • Offer a Unique Selection: An area with plenty of foot traffic or near a waiting area may already have a vending machine, but those locations could be prime real estate if they offer minimal or unattractive choices. Placing combo drink snack machines in these areas provides customers with a unique selection and increases the chances of financial success.

In the vending machine business, location must be a priority. In the right spot, quality, reliable and affordable vending machines from eVending have a great chance of being profitable.

This feature reduces the expense of hiring someone to inventory the machines manually and it ensures the machines are always filled and ready to make money.

Veteran vending machine owners appreciate these dual options when they buy vending machines to upgrade equipment, expand their business or grow into new locations.

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.

Are you ready to start or expand your vending business? We have vending machines for sale to suit every need. Contact us today.

Virtually everyone can agree that kids today are not as healthy as they could be or as they were in years past. Mrs. Obama has taken it upon herself to right this wrong and help today’s kids make better choices when it comes to health and food. One sweeping change she hopes to make is the reduction of unhealthy food options for kids in schools and the promotion of healthier options. Vending machine companies are taking note and have begun offering healthy alternatives to junk food in their combo drink snack machines:

Replacing sodas with water:
One change seen around the country in regards to vending machine products available on school property is the reduction in soda machines and the increase in those that dispense bottled water or low-sugar drinks.

Switching out junk for substance:
Another change the First Lady is hoping to make is replacing typical vending machine fare, which is often times junk food such as chips, with healthier food alternatives. For example, nuts or dried fruit can take the place of chips and dark chocolate, which is the healthier option when it comes to chocolate, can replace milk chocolate.

Vending machines cater to kids in schools, and in most cases, these kids will buy junk food if given the option. However, if only healthy options are offered on school property, or some healthy options are given in addition to unhealthy food choices, many kids will begin to eat healthier.
