  1. Vendo 721 has ice on.....

    Sweet, well good luck on the Vendo Deck.
  2. Vendo 721 has ice on.....

    Always considered any of that leak stop/tire slime/etc. the same... great if your about to sell whatever your using it on... make it someone else's problem.
  3. Bound to happen eventually... Lost a machine

    yeah I talked to the owner almost every time I was in...your right, its annoying though. Not the end of the world... off to find the next location!
  4. Lost the first bulk machine I bought (Generic triple made in china, from gumballs.com) didn't do enough reading here yet. Machine was in a Mexican restaurant, BB/skittles/runts, another vendor had gumballs already. I had it there for about 3 months and they closed down. No phone call, tried calling but no response, put a sign on the front and back doors, put a card under the door, on top of the door so it falls when they open it, called the owner of the strip mall and left multiple messages, tried the owners emergency number multiple messages, and I talked to other businesses in the strip mall. All no responses. Chalk it up to an early first lesson learned, just not sure how to change things for the future... phone number is on the machine in 3 spots, email in 2 spots. *sigh*
  5. Healthy vending?

    I teach High school and used to eat the school lunch everyday... there isn't enough salt in the world to make the current meals edible. I now see students walk in with a 2 liter of mountain dew and a party size bag of Cheetos. The school can't say anything to them because that's what they brought for lunch. Call one of the local public schools to see if you can buy a lunch sometime. Good luck to ya if they say yes.
  6. Oak

    Oak is only open Monday - Thursday. I would wait and try again on Monday...
  7. A&A stands?

    I haven't called Eagle for their prices but the best prices I've found online is TJKing.com for stands and gumballmachinefactory.com for racks. I ordered one rack from GMF and the shipping wasn't bad at all. I did look at entervending.com because they have a good selection of stands and their prices aren't bad but shipping just killed it from them.
  8. Do trade schools follow federal guidelines?

    There are some Trade schools that allow 11th and 12th graders in and there are some across the country specifically for high school students. But, it all boils down to someone complaining. The guidelines are grades K-12 and any food/drink item that is sold from midnight to 30 minutes after students are dismissed and intended for immediate consumption must meet the guidelines. One thing I thought was odd was 12 oz Gatorade G2's are fine but 20oz G2's are not. O and the guidelines are different from k-4, 5-8, and 9-12. I think that's how its broken down (middle school starts either 5 or 6). I only worried about the 9-12 guidelines.
  9. Smart Snacks List

    My school sent out a list and we could purchase items through the district food services for our classrooms. I found better prices on some things but here is the list. There is also a federal calculator. But school districts can make the list more strict if they choose https://www.healthiergeneration.org/take_action/schools/snacks_and_beverages/smart_snacks/alliance_product_calculator/
  10. Stickers and tattoos?

    The locations that it *might* work in probably sell individual cards that people really want anyway. You would probably be better off buying cases of cards, opening them and just sitting down with a price guide and try selling them yourself.
  11. Thanks AZ, that's what i was wondering.
  12. yeah, I figured it would be a long shot but the idea was there.
  13. Corvus, are you referring to tax exempt for resale? When you buy something you don't pay sales tax but you pay sales tax quarterly/annually on what you sell from the machines?
  14. I have a location that cant make up their mind whether or not they want a drink machine. The owner did say if I had an antique coke/pepsi machine that I could place it anytime. I think it's more of a "decor" issue than a space/cost issue. 1. Anyway what I am wondering is if a machine like the one pictured could be updated to take plastic bottles, I don't want to deal with the issue of empty glass bottles. I doubt 20oz will fit but what about 16.9 oz bottles, they are probably the closest to height and diameter of the glass bottle. 2. Then there is the issue of a new coin mech in it... I assume it would be essentially rewiring the entire machine and probably adding some kind of sensors or a board or... Well... probably a pipe dream and would be insanely expensive to do, but thought I would ask if its even remotely realistic.
  15. newbie to vending

    sweetstopvending.com or vendinglabels.com He's a good guy that seems to do labels on the side. I called him and he was out running his route so I think bulk vending is his main job. Great prices and quick shipping. I'll toy with making my own eventually but when i can order them with nutrition info from him and they look nice.
