They have saturated their marketing area with one product,  now they are running a new product and will saturate their marketing area with that one and on and on and on....

This is why I deal with vending machine manufacturers and not importers and bizops, I want to know they will be around for awhile, especially if I need parts.

BTW anyone looking at these type of mechanical snack and soda vending machines, I ran em in the 90's - watch out!

Very well said. Buy from MANUFACTURES. Not resellers of junk machines.

1800 has indeed undergone a major marketing shift.  Their triple vends are now being used to market an energy chew product much like "Buzz Bites" under http://www.pureenergyvending.com.  Their focus seems less on selling the machines and more on selling "distributorships" and product.  You will now pay a one-time up front fee for the right to sell their exclusive (I believe) product which will vend from their traditional triple head.  These are not protected territories I am told.  Also, though I don't know the pricing structure, the machines are supposed to be selling for considerably more than they were when sold as a 1800 machine.

For those looking for parts and support, it has moved to http://www.1800vending.net/support.com.  Also price-locks on new machine purchases will continue to be honored for existing customers.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the links. (Interesting) I think the 1800's are some of the best machines I've ever used. I still say what I've always said though ..... buy from people unloading their biz-ops for pennies on the dollar (not direct.) Unless you have a lot of extra money to spend on machines.
