I have an extremely good vending location in surrey which i visit once a month.
It is a 24/7 vending location where there are constant production in a factory.
These types of locations are very desirable since your vending location with pop and snack machines are always used up especially on the night shift.
On my monthly visits i normally expect everything to be sold out on both machines.
Problem is that sometimes you get frustrated because the machines are perennially vandalized. The pop machine is very heavy but people managed to shake it and they stick a something from the delivery bin to hook free cans.
The snack machine is used to be being shaken all the time.
At times when i forget to put the security tabs on the tray, the tray will just stick out all the way touching the front glass.
The location is unique and the previous owner was being told to move out. But the machines cannot be taken out because of the small doors.
The location had the machines moved in at a time when the doors are still wide prior to renovations.
As a vendor you would wonder if you are lucky to be getting stuck with the location forever.
It is very good for me if you have proper security measures from vandalism.
Would you be happy to have such a location ?
This particular location always have coin jams, pop and snack machines being moved and nudged all the time. I guess there is no perfect location when you are in the vending business.
When i took over the location from the previous owner the management had so many requests and complains a lot.
So many requests to a point that i got so many annoying calls on loosing customers money. And wanted an immediate solution.
Of course as a vendor i would provide superb service. It is just that this location is unique where the customers are always the same group of people using the machine.
This is the only location that customers doesn’t respect the machines.
As a vendor, do not assume that everyone knows how to use a vending machine properly. You have to always keep up with the customers qualms and concerns.
This location is highly desirable even thou it is laden with unexpected time loss on repairs and frustration on my monthly visits.
I have a headache today hoping it will go away the next day.
There is nothing to complain about on a location. Doesn’t require commissions and no requirement on servicing schedule visits even when the machine is empty for weeks.
Would you keep this kind of location if it was you ?
