What are the Different Types of Vending Machines?
The vending industry is one of opportunity, flexibility, ease of entry and nearly endless growth. If you’re looking to truly live the American Dream, it can be just the business vehicle to take you there.
But there’s a dizzying array of vending machines to choose from. So, how do you dissect the options and choose the most profitable products to help propel your business success?
Here are some of the different vending machine options, along with what products they can provide to various locations.
Junk Food Vending Machines
You’ve seen the “typical” snack vending machine stocked with sodas, candy bars and greasy chips countless times in hotel lobbies, gas stations, office buildings and more. In a way, these machines helped build the vending machine industry, and you have them to thank for that.
The problem? The increasingly health-conscious public demands more wholesome on-the-go choices. That’s why they’re quickly losing traction in the modern marketplace as consumer preference shifts toward healthy snacks.
Junk food machines may be commonplace, but the reality is that if you’re looking for a sustainable business opportunity, you’ll need to consider machines and products specifically tailored for the growing health movement. Simply put, consumers won’t continue to support unhealthy products of questionable origin and mysterious ingredients for much longer. With Healthy YOU Vending, you’ll be in a prime position for continued vending business success.
Healthy YOU Vending Machine
Consumers have never been more conscious of their diets than now. That’s why it’s more important than ever to have vending options that surpass junk food. We’ve all heard it a thousand times, but healthy eating is critical to support a wholesome lifestyle, fend off chronic physical conditions, manage weight and even boost the immune system.
The Healthy YOU Vending machine gives people convenient options they won’t have to think twice about. You may also find that some of these options have excellent margins, so it’s a win-win. The Healthy YOU Vending machine is American made and built with plenty of smart features. Plus, we offer a range of business supports to help you succeed.
Side vendors attach to the side of the main Healthy YOU Vending machine and share its payment system and remote monitoring technologies. They offer their own unique space to showcase and vend unique products. We offer two versions of these unique, revenue-enhancing auxiliary units.
SmartMart Side Vendor
Not only can you stock more and bigger snacks in the SmartMart Side Vendor, but you can offer entirely different products. At the gym, some of our operators have found success with pre-workout and post-workout supplements, gym towels, lifting gloves, jump ropes and more. At hotels, products like shaving cream, razors, cell phone chargers and more are commonly forgotten by overnight guests. The SmartMart Side Vendor is the solution to these all-too-common and always inconvenient situations. After all, it’s always the most inopportune moment when we realize we’ve forgotten something!
The Wellness Center is a great place to offer over-the-counter medicines at a premium, and plenty of other personal well-being goods. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our operators offered sanitation products, such as antimicrobial wipes and disinfectants. Face masks, gloves and other personal protection equipment (PPE) can also provide your customers peace of mind in uncertain times.
