Soda Vending Machines and The Vending Business

Mar 2, 2008
Soda machines are very popular these days particularly in hospitals, colleges, bus stands and airports. We like convenience, options, low prices, and vending machines offer all of these. Vending machines, an extremely profitable market, have become a significant new battleground in the soft-drink business. We're in a period of intense competition among bottlers and full-line vending operators for the control of soft-drink vending machines.

While installing choose an indoor location for the Vending Machine that is not too close to heat, sunlight, wet conditions. Install it out of reach of small children. Place the Vending Machine Fridge no closer than 4 inches from walls to ensure enough air circulation through the ventilation grills on the back side of the soda vending machine. Prefer a location within 6 feet of a wall outlet to avoid usage of an extension cord; if an extension cord is needed be sure to choose an UL approved cord that is as short as possible. Plug electric cord into the socket on the cooler and the wall outlet. Always push or pull on the plugs, not on the cord itself to avoid damage. Do not place the power cord under heavy objects to avoid damage. Replace any damaged electric cord. Turn the power switch to the on position. The power indicator light will illuminate and the cooling system will be ready.

If space is an issue, the six-selection soda vending machine will allow you to offer a sort of beverages in a minimum amount of space. Six selections allow you to mix and match bottles and cans to satisfy public demands. The ability to vend both bottles and cans gives you the versatility to serve people the beverages they most desire including bottled water, sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks and juices.

The ten selection soda vending machine vends almost all of the beverage containers in the market, including cans and bottles. These features and many more make this vending machine a best choice. Cold sodas, chilled juices, bottled mineral water, iced teas, sports drinks, energy drinks and more, this soda vending machine vend them all. The 12 selection dispenses a variety of both canned and bottled beverage packages and has the biggest capacity in its range. To dispense a beverage push lighted buttons situated on the front of the Vending Machine in the display window.

Periodically you will need to take out, clean and dry the tray where the cans descend onto when dispensed. This will require more frequent care in wet conditions. High humidity can also cause condensation inside the soda vending machine that should be wiped up with a dry cloth. While cleaning, turn off the power switch and unplug the power cord. Vacuum out the ventilation grills which are on the back of the vending machine. Use only a soft warm cloth and a mild detergent for cleaning purpose. Avoid the use of harsh cleaning agents and solvents. If storing the Vending Machine switch off the power unplug the power cord, then clean and dry it thoroughly.
