  6. Started in vending around 1987.  Bought a couple of drink machines and took off from there until 2005. Had a major heart attack so had to sell the company.  Started Blue Moose Vending Management in Southern California.  We work with established vending companies wanting to expand their routes.  We do research in the areas they want to target.  We do financials, get contract expiration dates (our calendar goes back to 2005 so we have a pretty good lead system), we find out who handles the vending program and we go from there with wine-dine or what it takes to move forward.

    We have a small group of retired vending owners/executives working part-time in certain areas such as Dallas/Ft. Worth, Los Angeles County and the balance of Southern California. We do occasionally help vendors in other areas that we have known for awhile (Florida, you know who you are) but we just do not have the staff to handle lots of folks.

  7. green as a babe in the woods....

    Welcome.
  8. Cans vs. bottles

    Single price or multi price. You have one or the other. Same as automatic or stick. Look back and read how many vendors refer to the single price can vender. And yes a multi price machine can be setup to sell only cans or cans and bottles with different pricing on each selection.
  9. Go to ebay. Our vendors use them as extra service items. You can get good built in counter top units around $500. Or less.
  10. Surge Protectors for Machine?

    The protectors we used shut down the units before any damage to the machine electronics. We had a couple of mfg plants that required them.

  13. Micro-Markets

    Do you offer Micro-Markets? Wondering which companies you use? Have you found them to be successful in certain types of businesses? Looks like you can turn a normal office type account with as few as 90 employees into a nice little account if you can change that break room into your micro-market setup. He said he can go from $400 a month drink and snack to $1600 and up. The small market he uses is a cooler, a glass front bottle vendor on free vend, a couple of snack racks, coffee and the nanomarket koisk from 365Markets. Costs are under &7000. Does this jive with any of your experiences?
  14. Liability insurance

    Be sure to check with your agent. I haven't sold or underwrote insurance in good long while.
