Cold food Machine for office

Hello All,

I need help making a decision on a vending setup that I currently have.  One of my locations has placed a request for cold food.  The location has the headcount for cold food, but lacks the space.  Currently I have a crane 168 and 501e live display.  For reference, the space I have to cram three machines into is 98 inches wide.  My first thought is to keep the 168 in there and go with a smaller baby bev for drinks boosting space for a smaller cold food machine.  Any suggestions on how I should tackle this.

Quick research shows a 168 being about 33" wide and a 501e about 36" wide for a total of 69"... leaving you 29" for anything else.  A baby bev should actually be WIDER than a 501e, so it won't save you any space at all.  The only thing I can think of that would make this all possible is to go with a 5-wide AMS like Chard mentioned or a USI Alpine.  If you could afford it and you needed the extra soda capacity, you could also throw in a USI CB-300.  That's about 33" for the 168, 39" for the AMS, and 22" for the CB-300 for a total of 94".  I don't think anything else is possible unless you got even more crazy and put two AMS 39's in there and just left it at that.

Just tell them there is no room for a food machine.  A worthwhile account needs full size soda and snack machines and a Foodking is junky.  Doing a full snack and real food machine with a CB300 is moving backwards.
