  1. 9mil does the trick
  2. Wholesale club is better priced than Costco for most everything vending related. Murray's wholesale in Hamilton sells individual vending sized bags instead of full cases. That's the problem with only having 1 snack machine. To many stales. Try combo packs from wholesale club. Vending products of Canada is close to you and is great. They also sell combo packs as well as some brands of chips with 8 month expiry dates.
  3. Super shady imo. Business is business at the end of the day but this is borderline at best. I'm not into it.
  4. Same as the others. Cash flow. I have grown the business 160% in the last 14 months and as we all know after machine, moving costs, other expenses new accounts require it gets expensive real quick. Have had some unfortunate luck with a ton of MEI acceptors and validators needing to be refurbished lately, almost 30 in a 3 week period. Never fun! Makes it real hard to draw a salary or feel like you're actually profitable.
  5. Have a royal 542 (looks and uses royal 650 parts to my knowledge) Under the chute is a block of ice. Fan runs non stop. The display on the front of the machine reads 4 degrees Celsius (I'm in canada) than 5 seconds later it says 20 degrees Celsius. Than 5 seconds later will say 10 degrees. Etc. Jumping all around. As far as I can tell the temp is set in control board to be 4 degrees. Is this a bad thermostat?
  6. What's not to get? My smart phone is easily accessible and can even print reports to my wireless printer. Only time I really use my actual computer is to enter sales in my quick books at home randomly.
  7. I am glad you got it fixed However let's see you post here in 2 years and tell us how great your seaga has been for you. You won't:)
  8. Agreed. Missing the main component
  9. That is definitely not new. Or you're idea of new is much different than mine. Decent machine though
  10. If you live in toronto I have more than enough beaver machines (some like new on racks even) for you to purchase for wayyyy less money. Send me a pm
  11. Very good. Fast and super accurate in my oppion
  12. Yes but that would be very tedious when you rotate product around or add new items. Unless you specifically always keep each and every selection the same. Which to me seems like a stale idea. I do exactly what the above poster does. After loading my snack machines I take a quick photo of it on my cell phone. Than when I arrive at location I quickly pull up that report from my cell phone and check which items sold. It's not perfect but if you see A4 sold 9 times you know you need that. Anyhow sweet new account, congrats!
  13. Somewhat. If it's a smaller account you don't need them as we have $1 and $2 coins. On bigger accounts you can put one on one machine and leave the other without one as they can make change from their $5,10 and 20 dollar bills.
  14. Bingo. Assuming you paid $50-60 for the machine that's 2 years almost to breakeven. Not worth getting out of the car for this account
  15. Per location. Keep location notes (cards) in your vehicle that you look at when you roll up to each location. If you suspect a slow moving head jot it down to keep note of the next time you service it. Otherwise the behind the scene time will take up precious growth time. Good luck with the new route!
