emt1581 Posted June 23, 2014 Share Posted June 23, 2014 Friday a vending machine guy at one of my jobs turned me on to the idea of getting into vending. Yesterday I was pretty psyched and tearing up the net researching the business of vending. Today I got the idea to ask the owner of my private practice (counseling specializing mostly in children's issues) if it would be ok to put a gumball/candy machine on one of the coffee tables or buy a stand model and put it in a corner. Then I thought about asking the 2 pediatrition offices that refers clients to me if it'd be ok with them (same group of docs). I figured I'd tell them there would be ZERO peanut products inside due to allergies. Plus I'd fill it/them with skittles or mike and ike's instead of gum balls because...well...I figured people can eat more than one servings of candy. Gum is a buy-once kinda thing. Plus kids and adults eat candy. Not many 30+ adults smack away on gum balls that I've seen. Personally I might average one every two years. Originally I thought that a 2 head, 3 head or rotating 4 head would be the best but for classy offices I think a standard chrome/high-gloss red traditional machine would be the way to go. Thoughts? Rhino seems like a clean, eye-appealing, brand. Not sure how their quality is. I've seen old/dirty looking oak machines. But other than Rhino are there any other brands to consider that might be better? Is there an advantage/preference in regard to the shape of the storage (round, cylinder, square)? Are the prices I linked to good or can they be had cheaper (new)? Anything else to know/consider? Thanks!! -Emt1581 *post edited by moderators to remove possible spam.
