I hope this answer your questions why there is a need for different configurations, specifications on the pop machine. It really boils down to the demand of the location.

  • Some small location has about 5 people but consumes pop like there is no tomorrow, hence i put an 8 selections pop machine.
  • Some large locations where most people are sitting on their chairs the whole day do not consume soda pop hence a small machine or even just a snack machine.
  • Some large locations with hundreds of people moving in and out and consumes all the soda pop that they can get their hands on.
  • Some residential location which is accessible 24 7 and soda pop machine is always empty.

I have been doing this business for years and years, I’m not a seller of vending machines but a vendor who places soda pop machine in different locations hence I know first hand what is the true demand and real deal on what kind of soda pop vending machine that you need to put on a location.

The reason why these particular drinks dispensers are important is because of the fact that most people prefer to purchase them for the offices.

Are Smaller Pop Up Machines Better Than Bigger Pop Soda Vending Machines?

A smaller pop up machine may make sense in certain situations, but in others it can mean sacrificing profits. The main reason why a smaller pop is required is because of several factors involved:

  • Demographics
  • Average Vends per day
  • Location

It all depends on why you are looking to buy the smaller pop up machines.

If your business is on the small side but you want to capitalize on the holiday season then a smaller pop up machine may not be the way to go.

A larger pop up machine will cost more up front because of installation, and if your business depends on steady sales during the busy season then a smaller pop up machine may mean that you will have fewer sales during that time.
