Most of us are familiar with the tall soda and snack machines that seem to have, in one way or another, been around forever. We have all spent countless nickels, dimes and quarters in them buying our favorite candy bars and sodas, yet the face of the snack machine has been changing over the last few years with the advent of table top models and combination machines.

The Way You Pay For Snacks in Machines Has Changes As Well

Not only has the basic design of snack machines been changing to meet more modern times, you are going to find that the way your customers will be paying has changed. With more people relying on their credit and debit cards to pay for everything, it only stands to reason that you would be able to get a credit card reader complete with cell phone connection for your machines to attract as many customers as possible.

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?

There are plenty of obvious businesses that can easily generate extra money with the help of a vending machine.

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.

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!
