The three most important things
your vending business requires to be successful are:
This is paramount to your success in the vending
The best and most economic way to establish
your route is to do it yourself.
If you’re like most people, they want to start a vending
business because they work too many hours already and want to
leverage their time. Having said this, they don’t want to spend additional time finding
locations on their own and choose to hire an outside source. A qualified Professional Location Company
is just one method you may choose to have your locations secured
in an efficient manor.
There are several different methods that
can be used. Depending
on the type of vending business you’re growing, you may use any
of the following methods:
Company (in person)
Company (via phone sales)
(subcontract) local individual (friends etc.)
it yourself (we provide counsel and marketing materials)
Whatever method you choose, 101 Vending is here
to walk you through the process step by step.
One important factor when establishing
your vending business is the vending machine you are presenting
to the location. For example: If you decided to start a bulk candy vending business, you would
want to make sure that you purchase a bulk vending machine that
impresses your potential client.
If you call on a good location that already has machines,
you may want to show them something with multiple selections like
the 8-Spin Titanic. This bulk candy and gumball vending machine
offers 8 selections while only being 10 inches wide. If you were to call on the busiest locations
in town that already have machines, you’ll find getting in the
door of locations to be very effective with this vending machine. Remember, the most important opinion is the
one of your customer.
When using a Professional Location Company,
make sure you find a company that isn’t promising you some “too
good to be true” story. If
they claim they guarantee some great revenue in each location
or they’ll “replace it for free”, ask them first how many times
and for how long they’ll replace that one location for free.
Also, if they say they’ll do it for free, they’re either
charging too high a price to begin with or they’re not going to
come back out and do it for free. Understand that the actual locator that does
the job retains half of the locating fees. He or she is independent and locating companies contract the work
out to the locator. They
will not come out for free. The
more reasonable guarantees are the ones that say they’ll replace
the location for half price.
Look for lifetime warranties.
They can do this because 100% of the funds go to the actual
locator so he or she is working for the same amount as they were
when the secured the original locations.
