Servicing Your Bulk Vending Route

The first thing to think about when starting your bulk vending route is location. The second thought should be on the specifics of your route. Ease of commute from machine to machine is key to building a smooth business.. 

Once you have your route mapped out, think about separating your routes into clusters. By separating your route into clusters (ex: 10 square mile groups), you will open yourself up to increased mobility while allowing yourself  extra time, as one never knows when a machine will need servicing beyond a regular refill. Ideally, you would aim to take one route to your vending “cluster” area while taking a different route on the way back passing different sets of machines and opening more options to service different these machines along your route. This will help you manage your time and service more machines without going too far out of your way during one service day.

Soda/Snack Vending Machine Business Points

Running a full line vending business could be very lucrative once a few hurdles are cleared. Here are a few points to weigh when getting into the vending business:

  • It may be a bit more difficult to find space for a soda/snack machine rather than a much smaller gumball machine. Your soda/snack machine will take up more floor space and will have leave space for foot traffic.
  • You will need a van or a truck to carry product. Transporting your refill product will take up more vehicle space.
  • General maintenance costs will be more as the parts generally consist of electronic components, you may need a technician to make the repairs and transporting the machine may incur some costs.

Nevertheless, taking those hurdles into account, the return on investment should be very robust long term. For more information on soda/snack vending machines visit us at or call us 866-648-6225.
