lurtsman Posted February 19, 2009 Share Posted February 19, 2009 I'm putting together a rack for that pizza place I keep talking about. Here's what I'm thinking about doing. The frame: http://www.gumball-machine.com/machine-racks-3.html The bottom row: 3 Super 60s and one oak vista Gumballs, runts/skittles, RP, blockheadz in the vista. Already have the 60s on location. The vista would be purchased here. (40$ with lock, have it set to 1.1 inch capsules.) http://www.vendiscuss.com/forums/view_topic.php?id=3588&forum_id=7 Then the top row: Two super 80s, 50 cent vend of 2 inch capsules: http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=125413 (Please confirm that the two inch capsule wheel comes at 50 cents by default since I can't find a way to tell on the page) These super 80s would do dentures by Dwayne and either sponge bob series 2, or lip gloss rings. (Trying to make the second something the girls will want also) http://www.aaglobalind.com/bulk-vending/bulk-vending-toys/2-inch-capsuled-toys/NIC55C-spongebob-squarepants-figurines-series-2-bulk-vending.htm That's the sponge bob series 2, based on where they were in excel sheet they should be a 2 inch capsule. Can anyone tell me if those do indeed come in capsules? In the middle of the top row one super 80 sticker machine: http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=112597 It would vend two types of tattoos: Alchemy dragon tattoos on onside Dora the explorer tattoos are on A&As website, but not in our excel sheet. Most likely around 30$ though, maybe 36$? (From A&A, for simplicity sake I'm going to stick to one supplier for toys/flat, and A&A has a good reputations and endorsements from vendors I trust) That would let me hit the young kid market, in the library both boys and girls at a young age love Dora. The dragons should work fairly well for the young to median young boys. There's a listing of their products and prices in the spread sheet at the top. Also, does anyone know how much it would cost me on shipping? It's kind of a moot point since I will order it anyway unless shipping is crazy for toys/stickers, I'd expect it to be fairly low. So, what do you guys think? Do I need to push harder for used machines to save money on start up costs? Do I need to change some of the products? Is the rack frame itself reliable? It's much cheaper than other comparable racks I've seen. The whole thing is fairly expensive, but if I pay commission @ 40% off net and only service every two months it should still be a large enough payment for them to be happy. I think I'll buy lunch there when I go to service if the GM is there. Customers are always appreciated more, and it shows some respect for their business. Thank you for your responses everyone. When I started thinking about vending in early December I had no idea I could have a rack like this set up by the start of March. THANK YOU!
