Gumball Vending machine outside my house?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else had the same idea of having a gumball machine outside my house in the weather but I'll bring it in over night and hot and rain?

If you have enough foot traffic maybe it could work but it would have challenges.

1. I assume you are in a warmer part of the country but even so weather can change quickly. Are you around home enough during the day to bring it in if the weather changes?

2. Secure it because if you don't it will eventually walk away.

3. Bugs aren't usually a problem with gumballs but if it is outside the threat is higher.

4. Direct sun and humidity could cause problems even if the temperature is reasonable.

Bottom line....you never know until you try it.

Following, I am interested in putting one outside a gas station in town (and locking it up with a chain, etc) and I'm interested in seeing the results if the OP decides to try it.

I would be more apt to go with capsules in that case because if the machine is going to be outside 24/7 gumballs (or candy) won't cut it. I would also worry about vandalism or someone breaking into it. If the gas station closes over night then forget it because there is not doubt it will get destroyed. I have seen them outside before but it is usually right next to the door, under an awning, and the places were 24 hour.

You guys are really desperate for locations. This is the silliest nonsense I’ve ever heard.

Truth be told I would never do it but in big metro areas like New York you see bulk vending machines outside quite a bit. Most are racks on casters that are rolled back into the stores at night.
