1 High Traffic Areas
Where are you high foot traffic areas, usually these would be somewhere like connecting corridors, or inside a canteen. This will ensure the maximum amount of sales from your machine. A machine hidden away in a distant corner of the office will not see much business.
- The Amount of Space Available
Vending machines come in all shapes, sizes and complexity, so it’s important that your planned area for them has enough space. It’s also important to have enough space for regular maintenance and restocking to be undertaken. Another consideration is will the machine block doorways or fire exits.
- The Products You Want
Depending on the type of machine you acquire, be aware that some, particularly those stocked with sweets and confectionery, will need to be away from heat sources or in direct sunlight as they could easily melt in summer sunshine and heat.
