Why we don’t just sell machines
“I want to reduce my investment and start with just machines. Will you sell just machines to me?”
Why a System?
Our company does not sell just healthy vending machines. We help people start a successful healthy vending business. The franchise-like system described below is what enables our operators to build a successful business.
High Quality Machines
You can’t run a successful business if your income producing asset is not operating properly. Lower quality machines results in lost revenue and lost locations. We designed our machine and work closely with the manufacturer we chose to build it. No other company has done this.
Lifetime Warranty & Guarantees
The average length of a vending machine warranty is 1-2 years. We provide a Lifetime Warranty – along with Lifetime Vandalism/Fire/Theft Protection. No other company in the industry offers what we do.
If you have a problem with your machine you want to talk to an expert. Questions about your machine go directly to the technical support department right at the manufacturing facility. And, they are part of the team that determines new machine improvements.
Locations / Products
After getting quality machines this is the most important aspect of your business. If you do not have good quality locations you are dead in the water. You will not have the daily foot traffic that you need to be profitable and thrive in the business. Our location team is the best in the industry and we even include a relocation warranty. We can do all of the work for you or we can work together on more of a team approach. Our location team alone is larger than the whole company for two of our competitors. We’ve been helping our operators with locations for 20 years and no one is better at it.
90% Commission Free
To date, nearly 90% of the locations we have helped our operators secure DO NOT require any commissions to be paid to the location! The result? Another 15-20% of your GROSS sales going into your pocket and not someone else’s - month after month, year after year. Our competitors offer commission to speed up the location process but it is your money they are giving away.
Lowest Cost on Products
Why spend hours constantly researching products and product sources and then driving around town picking up a few products at each stop? Why guess what the top sellers are when the world’s largest supplier of healthy products will share that information with you? Because of our size our operators are able to work directly with United Natural Foods Inc. UNFI supplies Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and many other large and small healthy grocers and stores. They provide an 11% discount to our operators – something no other company can offer. Get the lowest prices and access to thousands of products not just whatever Costco and Sam’s Club happen to sell.
Everything you need to know to get started and succeed. You’ll get hands-on training on your machines, locations, software, products, pricing and more. You’ll get expert advice from our own CPA as well as learn effective strategies from an experienced marketing pro. You’ll also meet the coaches, support staff and the owners. We sold the first healthy vending machines in the nation in 2007 and have lead the industry every step of the way.
Coaching is not just for new operators (although that's when you'll need it most), but for experienced operators as well as they seek guidance on expanding their business. Coaching starts the day after you make an investment with our company and it never ends - all done by a professional, seasoned team. While our coaches have their own healthy vending routes as well they work in our corporate office talking with operators across the nation. If you do not have the training and coaching that you need you will make all of the rookie mistakes, lose time and money and go through a very long and painful learning curve unnecessarily.
Online Support Center
An invaluable resource available 24/7. Want to re-watch a machine video or a video on how to do a specific task within eManage, our Vending Management Software? Need to print an agreement for a new location? Want to review Suggested Vend Prices for various products? The Online Support Center meets these needs and much, much more.
Vending Management Software
eManage tracks every aspect of your vending business allowing you to manage your business not have it manage you. Other companies offer a generic vending machine inventory program that tracks inventory in machines but does not it does not track inventory on your shelves. It does not track where you bought your product or what you paid so you cannot run net sales numbers. It does not track sales tax or commission. It does not track where you have your machines or details on the location.
Customized Web Site
You can’t run a successful business without a web site. It’s the first impression of your company and you never have a second chance to make a first impression. We build your web site for you saving you time and money.
During the life of your business you will need to replace some parts. Keypads and motors get the biggest use and will wear out over the years. Parts needed for the first year are covered at 100%. Beginning in year two you can get parts at 50% off and not have to pay retail prices like you do with most companies.
See what Robert Kiyosaki, famed entrepreneur, and author the “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” series of books said this about the importance of a system
We learned long ago NOT to sell machines by themselves.
Years ago we sold machine only packages. We stopped doing so after not a single person was able to develop a successful business. While machines are a MAJOR portion of your business there are many other components needed.
Buying machines only is like buying a used french fry machine and a used milkshake machine and expecting that you're going to build a successful hamburger business and compete with McDonald’s. It is just not going to happen. 60% of all new restaurants go out of business not because the food is poor but because the owners don’t have the tools and knowledge they need to run a business. You never see a McDonalds go out of business.
Special Challenges With Used Machines
Many older machines do not have the latest payment technology. They cannot take chip cards or mobile phone payments. These problems can be corrected by replacing the credit card reader but the firmware in the machine may not accept a new reader.
Questionable Condition of the Machines
You don’t know how a previous owner has treated their machine or what they may have done to it. One person took the internal drink door off their machine feeling it was unnecessary. They wondered why the refrigeration system struggled to keep drinks cold and leaked water. Imagine taking your refrigerator door off and expecting your food to stay cold. The new owner had to replace the entire refrigeration system in addition to the drink door.
Used machines come with no warranty so you are paying full retail prices for parts and your need for parts is greater depending on how the machine was maintained.
Parts Not Available
People and brokers selling used machines do not have access to all parts. Our manufacturer refers all parts orders to us and we are only able to sell parts to our operators. Those buying used machines sometimes purchase additional machines to use for parts.
Money In The Wrong Person’s Pocket
Credit card readers are set up to deposit funds in the machine owner’s bank account. Transfer of ownership not handled properly results in funds being deposited into the wrong person’s account. This happens with used machine purchases.
