    Absolutely agree. You learn to move on. Yes, sometimes they pop up somewhere along the way. Sometimes years later!

    Stolen Machine

    Theft and vandalism is the cost of doing business. I’ve had MANY machines stolen in all my years in this business. Just had one stolen last week. Most are inside jobs.... an employee thinks the machine would look cool in his man cave. A lot are drug addicts looking for a quick buck so they can get their next fix. Machine get smashed open, money stolen. I’ve become immune to it now. Best to cable lock machines if you have any doubts of it being stolen.

    I have used hundreds of camlocks for many years. Call them. You get your own key code, so if you need more locks you just call them.

    Finally Making New Vending Machine App

    Absolutely agree with Rodney. No need to micro manage your bulk business. I did for about 10 years and realized it was an absolute waste of time!

    A&A stands?

    I don't believe Rod works there any longer, so not sure that email will work.

    Vandalism

    All the above mentioned... plus leaves, grass, rice (Chinese restaurants) marijuana, bobby pins, I've literally seen it all in the 14 years doing this.

    A&A stands?

    I'm willing to bet Eagle isn't going to be around within a couple years.

    Bulk Vending a good indicator of a strong business

    Yes, always keep a close eye on sales. If you start seeing a decline in sales, and you have evaluated your product within the location and nothing changes, chances are their business is also failing. relocate, locate and relocate again...the name of the game in this business

    Getting the boot

    I've been in this business going on 14 years. In those 14 years i've lost maybe hundreds of locations due to various reasons. Most closing, some location owners buying their own machines, some remodeling and bulk just doesn't fit their new decor,ect. A wise man once told me years ago....you will eventually lose every location you get. If you really want to be successful in this business you need to learn to locate for yourself. If you have extra machines, always keep one or two in your truck while you're out servicing. Make it a point of locating at least one of those machines that day.
