Location will determine the success of your soda vending machine vending business. But how do you know if a location is profitable? Well, you never really know how profitable any location will be. It is kind of up in the air. You should be open to try reasonable size locations. Blue collar businesses are usually the best locations.
The vending machine industry has three categories for its target market : the blue collar businesses, the white collar businesses, and kids & young adults. Out of these three categories the blue collar is your best bet for your soda vending machines. Since blue-collar workers are out in the field or in an industrial building working hard and exhausted, chances are they might want a drink that is high in sugar or something of a Gatorade type to boost them up. This is where your soda vending machines enter, allowing workers to grab a quick drink in a higher convenience and without much down time.
There used to be a time when public schools were still considered to be a strategic location for your soda vending machines but now that the law prohibits these Soda vending machines from public schools, you may have to consider how you can still put your soda vending machines into good use within a public school's premise. If you really want to target public schools, then I suggest that instead of soda, you can just go for bottled water, fruit juices, or milk. Converting your soda vending machines to accommodate these beverages will surely keep you in business.
