BluePlate Posted January 3, 2009 Share Posted January 3, 2009 Just bought a new route today. having a little buyer's remorse, but I will tell you after I service the whole thing. The route has 38 machines, in 34 locations. Most of the machines are Vendstars or Ultravends (Which are horrible). I agreed to pay $2100 in total. The deal includes all product. I gave $1000 down and the rest of the money is due Mid March. The records (which are very detailed) show the route is doing a little over $500/month. The last time most of the route was serviced was the last week in November (I get the cash in the machines). Remaining payments are contingent on the route doing close to the $500 in December. So far it is coming out right. My two concerns are the Ultravends are just not a good machine(as far as I'm concerned), I am going to begin to replace them. Next, the route is 1 hour and 45 minutes away. The good part is, with a little work there is definately room to improve the exsisting locations - some locations seem to be under preforming, I think it's a less then pleasing looking machine. My goal is to get the machines in a position to service every 10 weeks. I moved with a little blind faith, but I think it could be a winner with some hard work........
