Vending Machine Locators

What are the three most important factors in real estate? Location, location, location. The same is true in the vending industry. And there are plenty of people out there willing to “help” you find the best locations for your machines. These so-called vending machine locators will contact businesses (for a small fee, of course) and provide you with locations to place your machines. Is it worth it? Maybe. But probably not.

In business there is no substitute for hard work. The vending business is no different. Placing machines in prime locations will take work. You will need to contact the business and offer terms that are acceptable. Terms? The vending machine locator didn't mention anything about that? Well, surprise. Most businesses that will allow you to place machines on their premises will expect a cut of the profits. There is no such thing as a free lunch.

The good news? It's this profit-sharing that can provide you with a competitive advantage. By offering a larger cut of the profits to the venue owner, you'll be able to differentiate yourself from the competition. If you make it worth their effort, they will not only welcome your inquiry but they may recommend you to other businesses looking to increase revenue.

While there are reputable vending machine locators, it's important to determine if you really need their services. Especially in a small market, picking up the phone yourself can save you money and help you to develop a personal relationship with your customers.
