eVending manufactures one of the most successful portfolios of vending machines in the market today. Coming from the stable of The Wittern Group, eVending’s machines boast 90 years of innovation in dispensing. Let us explore the ten major aspects that make these machines a trusted partner for businesses, institutions, organizations, and vending businesses.

Legacy and Expertise
eVending is a part of The Wittern Group, which has been manufacturing vending and dispensing solutions for as long as the Empire State Building has been occupied. The knowledge and expertise gained over the past 90 years, combined with new-age technologies, has resulted in machines of great quality, performance, and value.
The versatile portfolio of eVending’s machines can handle beverages, snacks, food, and non-food merchandise. Its technology serves piping hot beverages, frozen foods and everything in between in a safe and reliable manner.

Safety
eVending’s machines use state-of-the-art UV irradiation technology for disinfecting keypad and access panels. Using this proven and certified technology, the machines are sanitized automatically after peak usage. This helps kill or inactivate up to 99% of all pathogens including influenza and COVID-19viruses.

Custom Branding
Vending machines stand in outdoor and indoor areas with visibility to large audiences. This makes them an ideal channel for brand visibility. eVending helps you turn the vending machines into flag bearers for your brand through its in-house graphics team or by working with a team of your choice.
Turning black and grey machines into sleek and chic brand displays have a lot of tangible and intangible benefits. Branded machines attract more users for the machine, driving revenue from each machine. Consumers also feel pride in being associated with the brands of the institutions using branded machines.

User Friendliness
Innovative interfaces, multiple payment options, guaranteed delivery mechanism and other features make the machine easy for everybody to use.
Moreover, accessibility of a vending machine is the key to make them sustained streams of revenue. It impacts the convenience of the end user significantly, hence all the machines from eVending are ADA compliant or ADA ready. This ensures everyone is able to access the machine and its merchandise. Since ADA regulations went into effect in 2012, eVending has been giving access to retail merchandise in federal, state & local government entities, private businesses that offer accommodation and institutions that provide conveniences to their patrons and visitors.

Cashless and Cutting Edge
If there is one aspect that COVID-19 has accelerated in today’s retail environment, it is the need for contactless and cashless transactions. Vending machines are no exceptions. Some eVending machines come readily enabled with cashless card readers. This not only allows for safe transactions, but also allows credit purchases that can improve transaction volumes.
But the benefits do not end there. With the cellular-based card reader enabled machines, you can get much more. Here, the transactions can be monitored remotely. The back-end application provides web or mobile based interfaces that gives detailed insights into transaction patterns. This places the power of real-time intelligence in your mobile phone or desktop enabling faster and more accurate business decisions.

Sustainability
eVending ensures product sustainability at all levels. From manufacturing to using, the machines ensure sustainability through energy efficiency, material conservation, recycling, and reclamation wherever possible.
Be it the CFC-Free R134a modular refrigeration system or the LED lighting systems, the sub-systems are energy efficient. This also translates to lower cost of ownership for the owners and operators. During the manufacturing, recycling of the wash-water and electronically controlled paint spraying combined with reclamation of excess paint for reuse are all steps that make the machine eco-friendly. While environmental responsibility is the ultimate objective, the monetary benefits are just a happy side-effect.

Made in USA
Coming from the golden age of American ingenuity when the country was pioneering everything from Skyscrapers to Nuclear Energy, eVending takes pride in building its machines in the USA. All of its machines are built from rolls of steel and electronic components at its factory in Des Moines, Iowa.

What does this mean for the businesses that invest in such machines and the users? Well, the businesses have almost instantaneous access to parts and supplies that ensure high levels of uptime. Serviceability and the cost of servicing is a key factor of the cost of ownership. So, customers do not have to import expensive parts during these times of uncertain international logistics.

The end customers benefit from a machine that is built by a business that understands every aspect of the American life. From merchandise types to ergonomics, accessibility, compliance and efficiency, local knowledge is weaved into all aspects of design and manufacturing of the machines. This ensures the ultimate user experience and convenience.

Guaranteed Delivery
How often have we seen people nudging and begging vending machines to dispense the commodity they purchased? Well, it might seem funny when it happens to someone else but can put a frown on your face when it happens to you.
That is why eVending’s machines’ Guaranteed Vend Sensor technology, iVend, that either makes sure that you get the product or your money back. The IR interception-based technology is a fool proof mechanism that identifies the completion of a successful dispensation. It is a first of its kind for combo class of vending machines helping deliver great user experience and reliability.

Happy Customers
If the low cost of ownership, the reliability of the machines and their energy efficiency are not enough to make eVending’s customers smile, you can add its warranty schemes to that list. Ranging from a 1-year limited warranty program to a 5-year program for the Futura series.

Like we saw earlier in this blog, timely availability of parts and supplies that ensure uptime are not just convenience factors. They have a direct impact on revenue generation and monetization of your machine asset. The high customer retention rate and repeat purchases of eVending machines is testimony to the satisfaction of its customers.

Financing
Vending machines are capital assets with good returns on investment. A wide variety of plans that include flexible lease duration, monthly payment exemptions for the first 90 days etc. make buying from eVending an attractive investment. They also enable a faster return on capital employed and a daily breakeven with the sale of 7 to 10 items.

In the greater scheme of things, you are going to find that most people who are looking for a snack are also looking for an ice cold soda to go with it.

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.

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.

eVendingWhether you have been following our blog or have simply taken a look at the vending machines around you lately, it is clear the vending industry is evolving at a rapid pace. In celebration of the growth of the vending business, Tulane University recently hosted a “Gratitude Event” that allowed consumers to enjoy free refreshments and test out some of the industry’s new technology.

Gratitude events are generally meant to be a “thank you” to consumers, which in this case were vending machine customers aged 18-29 who have been proven to prefer drink and snack vending machines over convenience stores. The National Automatic Merchandising Association, or NAMA, was on hand to educate the public about the current vending options at their disposal. Top brands such as Keurig, Coca-Cola, and Red Bull were all present to provide hands-on demonstrations of their latest vending products. Some of the all-new technology on display included advanced touchscreen capability, as well as the ability to make a purchase with the simple swipe of a mobile phone.

This recent gratitude event is just one of the many testaments to the ever-expanding vending machine business. Looking to get in on the excitement? Our affordable combo vending machines are an excellent place to start!

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!

eVendingDo not adjust your monitor. You read that headline correctly. While modern day vending machines have typically been evolving to serve more and more everyday goods, Beverly Hills Caviar believes that those with expensive, exquisite tastes should have a means to satisfy their cravings all throughout the day. The first ever caviar vending machines have been placed in various malls in the Los Angeles area, finally allowing the appetizer of the wealthy to be purchased from a snack vending machine.

According to the LA Times,  these unique gourmet vending machines dispense fish eggs, truffles, escargot, oils, salts, and more. The machines also provide special utensils meant to preserve caviar’s unique taste. For those with a sudden late-night craving for expensive food, the caviar machine at the Burbank Town Center stays open until 2 AM. Given the usual high price of caviar, these machines are not likely to draw in the average mall-goer. Still, like the other modern vending machines we have covered, these caviar dispensers are a true testament to the industry’s ability to grow and reach all types of customers.

While you may not be serving caviar to your customer base any time soon, it is still a great time to become a part of the vending machine business. Whether you want a modern combo drink and snack machine or a simplified table top vending machine, the products available here at eVending make it easier than ever to earn some extra profit!
