MNvending Posted March 15, 2018 Share Posted March 15, 2018 I picked up a government building a few months ago. The location has well over 100 employees and by the look of it you'd think it would be a solid location. The parking lot is jam packed and there are people walking around all over. To my dismay, this location has been pretty much a dud. I installed 4 machines in 2 buildings and they have expired a lot of product over the last 4 months. Has anyone else experienced this with government buildings? To top off the slow sales, the people are really tough to deal with and I get the feeling that they think they're entitled to the equipment. I had a lady very rudely express concern that there was too much diet soda in one of the machines and said that she really wants to have Coke and an orange option. I politely said "okay that's no problem". The next service I put in Coke and Sunkist, and then told her on my way out that I stocked the options she asked for. How many Coke and Sunkists do you think I've sold in the last 4 weeks? A grand total of 3, two sunkists, and one coke. I started filling columns only half way to minimize stales, and started servicing them bi-weekly instead of weekly to keep service costs down. Then last week I started getting emails about a couple of empty coils. I also noticed in the other building that they have an honor snack system in their meeting room literally right next to my 5 wide snack machine and BevMax. The honor cash jar was completely stuffed with cash. I'm competing with my own customers. I am a bit offended by this and I'm ready to start pulling equipment. What would you do?
