  1. We don't do that much in bulk vending, we do that much in a combination of bulk vending and amusement. Like I said, I just did a cursory glance at those vendors, and we pay 30-40 for 250 2 inch capsules at ecvs. Looking at cardinal, it's 30-40 for 250 2 inch capsules. There are outliers in the 20-60 dollar range as well. I'm not trying to troll, but I will quickly admit to being wrong when you show me I'm wrong.
  2. For gumballs.com, maybe. But I looked at the pricing on the sites you guys just listed for toys, and East Coast Vending Supply does just as well from a cursory glance
  3. For bulk candy, gumballs.com is decent (not to be confused with gumball.com), and for toys eastcoastvendungsupply.com has incredible prices, even after shipping its cheaper than anywhere else I'm aware of.
  4. I don't know what your mall would charge for space, but the one I operate in is expensive. Doing this adds another hand to the pot of income. I would recommend doing it on a percentage basis. I definitely wish you good luck though! Who knows, it might work out fantastically!
  5. If i were you, I would tell the manager you are interested in taking over. Purchase your own machines and put them in, take his out and hold on to them; let the owner know you are doing this, and then (check for legalities on this part) tell him he can get them from you in the next couple months because they are at a location you now have the contract for, or you will assume he doesn't want them anymore.
  6. We've used Vistaprint, because we need stickers that work for bulk vending and arcade games. Normally some good coupons you can find for them to make it worth the quality.
  7. Just curious to see what people's experience with them has been.
  8. I recommend Gumballs.com
  9. Tomorrow morning, I am going on my first attempt at locating solo. The location is a restaurant that caters to family, lots of family seating and kid's meals, etc. The intent is for this machine to be a charity machine that donates to a local non profit that provides lots of great services to the community for free or super cheap (shelter, free bus line, section 8 housing, etc.). I've read all I can, and even done some practicing, but I would love any extra advice you guys can give me!
  10. I love this! I've edited it pretty heavily to add in things I wanted, a color scheme I prefer, etc. That said, this gave me such an amazing start.
  11. Route Evaluator View File Nice simple tool for evaluating the value of a route, based on value of machines, upkeep costs, income, and length of service. Submitter questionmark693 Submitted 04/14/2017 Category Vending Tools

  13. Keep your relationship with locations as good as you can. Lots of people struggle with maintaining locations; our company doesn't and I attribute that largely to us making sure the machines dont generate omplaints, and the location owners like us. Good luck!
  14. Definitely primarily arcade machines. That said, it is a redemption center, where people win tickets for prizes. But our bulk vending does jsut as well ther as elsewhere.
  15. We have half a dozen locations, and an on the cuff estimate is 60000 gross monthly between them all. Before percentages, cost of goods, etc. But we us far more arcade machines than we do bulk vending machines.
