Pros and cons of your favorite snack machine.

     Can you'll share your wisdom.  I have a location that wants a snack machine ( I have only been doing

 

drinks for years).  They are good customers  and don't bat an eye @ paying one dollar for 12 ounce

 

can drinks.  They will not complain about the margin of mark up ( that will be another topic).

 

Location approx. 25-30 employees, plus other wrecker drivers and customers.  What make, and why,

 

combo machine or no combo.  Opinions and advice are seriously taken.

 

 

    What are the pros and cons of your favorite snack machine and why?

 

I would be buying a used vending machine.

 

Respectfully,

Crane National, USI, AMS are the top choices. AP is fine but no longer made, old technology (single coils) and starting to show their age. If it is that good of an account I would invest in a nicer machine.

No combo's!

 

I have all AP machines until just this past weekend.

 

I picked up a refurbished USI 3014A for $200.

 

Even the coin mech was left full of change!

 

Hell of a deal!

 

I added my favorite dba today a Mars Vn 2542.

Nice!  What should I charge for chocolate/ candy bars?  chips?  cookies? pastries?

 

Better yet is there a formula or % recommended over cost?
