  1. It has an umbilical cord (wire harness) that connects very easily to almost any USI/RSI snack machine around the same era. Maybe someone else can chime in with more specific model numbers. And no it won't slave to an AP
  2. While I don't have 10+ years vending I do feel compelled to chime in. Why be content on the size of your company? Vending is a business that is relatively easy to scale compared to others. Why not create a large business that you can one day sell for a nice capital gain?? While you are still young, (same age as me)being a route driver can be physically taxing on the body. Do you still want to be a driver in your 50s? What happens if you get sick or hurt or even worse? You seem like a good operator. Maybe its time to bring someone in under your wing and groom them to be a good route driver. Start your second route and have an exit strategy in place for the distant future. Just my 2 cents.
  3. Did you have them do express delivery? Try and find a local vending machine retailer. Support your local economy.
  4. Vistar called me atleast 10 times about this yesterday. ..
  5. Yellow and red Gatorade sell the best. They stick you with Orange in the variety pack.
  6. Depends what you signed when you started working there...
  7. All in one screw stick, small ratchet set (deep), paper towels with disinfectant windex, zip ties and a box cutter if you don't prekit in advance.
  8. Id be worried using a food machine without a health sensor. If the compressor on that 5591 fails people are going to buy a moldy sandwich
  9. We like fresh brew or freeze dried coffee. Finding a good coffee location can sometimes be tricky. If you can find one you'll make your money back quick; provided that your prices aren't too low. Vistar is your best bet
  10. If you absolutely have to use an extension cord make sure its 12 AWG anything smaller is going to create too much resistance thus creating heat.
  11. Avoid the National 430 even if its free. Buy a 431 that has already been professionally refurbished.
  12. $100, 000 a month is going to take a hand full of talented help and quite a bit of warehouse space. Let us know how the bid goes!
  13. What area?
  14. Always buy everything used or refurbished in life accept for bedding and clothes.
