Branching Out to Serve People on The Run
The most vexing question that most people who run coffee vending machines or any kind of vending machine have to resolve is related to neighborhood. Which would be the most lucrative place for your vending machine? Now as opposed to waiting for the customers to come to you, why don't you go out to your customers? There are a variety of mobile restaurants which operate out of vans and trailers. You can also put your vending machine on a van and chalk out an itinerary for a select area/s where people keep coming and going.
If you want to pay attention to offering only hot drink solutions initially, then use a coffee vending machine to dispense coffee, tea, chocolate and maybe some health drinks. What you should preferably check out is that the model of coffee vending machine you opt for brews the coffee swiftly, even if it is often a beans to cup fashion. You risk losing customers if they have to wait forever and a day for that caffeine laden cup they have been thirsting for.
The two other things that you need to account for when chalking out the itinerary are what is the likely consumption to get in a best case scenario and what is the minimum sale that you need keep the business fantastic? The first will dictate your refilling options - where and how much - particularly for essentials like milk (which can spoil) and water (without which you won't be able to brew anything let alone fine tasting coffee.) Understand that your mobile coffee vending machine business will have the added overhead in comparison to its fuel. Most of the outlay required to make this business viable would stay the same for other things.
