Charity Vending, A Few Questions and Progress Tracking

3 posts in this topic

So after reading threw this forum for several months I took the plunge and ordered 25 charity honor boxes. I'm still waiting on the package and locations but I have few questions maybe y'all can help with. This forum has been so helpful not just with vending business information but business information in general there is really a wealth of info here.

1. Mint box, single type of candy box (i.e atomic fireballs only) or mixed candy box ?

2. After the first drop off , When you switch out the box do you check in with anyone ? Or just switch it out and leave?

3. Do you wear a name tag,hat ,shirt or anything else that identifies your company ?

I plan to track my progress here so I'll update when I'm further along.

thanks in advance for the help

With any type of delivery service, you should always let the business know you are there.  That's for their security AND yours.  I have always had my route drivers announce themselves or check-in with a receptionist.  A uniform that helps identify who you are will also help.  it's not necessary, but I would want my accounts to know who I am .  Just my 2 cents.  :)

My Answers Below;

1.) Mixed Candy allows for more customers to be satisfied.  

2.) I always make sure I identify myself with all my accounts and locations.  This is how you build relationships with your customers

3.) I don't wear a "uniform" but we dress comfortable for the weather with a professional appearance.
