    Tobacco vending is outlawed in just about every state and there are no more hot food machines around any longer. You might be asking about refrigerated food that gets heated up but those machines are loss leaders. If you do frozen food you can make a little money by putting ice cream in and being frozen, you won't have many stales but you will have to eat what doesn't sell well so you can try other items. Why are you considering these two types of vending? Do you like to be the underdog that will lose?

    You can't change the past but you can still shape your future.

    Make sure to get an authentic Keymaster. Not a chinese ripoff one that they cloned to look like one. There are differences between them.

    I've had keymasters and balloon busters sit side by side...and the keymaster always did better. No idea why (same prizes, same prices, etc.) but it just does better. I think the balloon buster looks a little "cheap" compared to the keymaster. I 2nd the keymasters never break down. I'm still yet to have a single issue with a keymaster.

    You've got the math figured out, hopefully your locations won't all flee to other vendors. I like raising prices one category at a time and at least 6 months apart. Less likely to spur action on provider changes. You are big enough that there may not be enough competition to take a huge share of accounts, but how many can you afford to lose before the math turns around? That is the competitive side of the issue, and it does act to hold prices down in basic economic theory. Good luck.

    The most unrealistic thing about Spy movies is how clean the air ventilation system is.

    The Conlux NBM was not very reliable. The MEI VN2502 or VN2512 with flash port will be much more functional. I have been scrapping failed NBM units for 2 years now.

    Stay away from imported machines.

    Yeah, that would work, you only need the front to be visible so people can see if the machine is empty. If you have Oaks/Eagles; replace the clear panels with shade panels or use a plastic paint on the outside (not inside) of the panel. Northwestern or the Chinese generic machines; use gumball display cards around the sides and back or laminated paper like your talking. I had one location that only an inch sliver of the bottom front panel was showing because the machine was facing the morning sun. I kept turning it but someone there would turn it again.

    One of the machines may be on top of the power cord.

    I am not a true mechanic but I have been doing this for a while. Dixie Narco E models have a computer function that allows all prices to be the same, or switch it and each button can different. It can be toggled at the Set Price menu.

    A blonde walks into a bank in NYC before going on vacation and asks for a $5000 loan. The banker asks "Okay miss, is there anything you would like to use as collateral?" The woman replies "Yes, of course. I would like to use my Rolls Royce." The banker, stunned, asks, "A $250,000 Rolls Royce? Really?" The woman is completely positive. She hands over the keys as the bankers and loan officers laugh at her. They check her credentials, make sure she is the title owner. Everything checks out so they park the car in their underground garage for two weeks. When she comes back, she pays off the $5000 loan as well as the $15.41 interest. The loan officer says, "Miss, we are very appreciative of your business with us, but I have one question. We looked you up and found out that you are a multi-millionaire. Why would you want to borrow $5000?" The woman replies, "Where else in NYC can I park my car for two weeks for $15.41 and expect it to be there when I get back?"
