If you could live off one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Pizza makes everything feel better. In fact, Americans love pizza so much that 3 billion pizzas are sold every year.
But here’s the big question – New York or Chicago-style? If you’ve ever thought about going into the pizza business, maybe sell both.
Happy customers = happy business.
Instead of opening up a pizzeria, considering selling through a 24/7 vending machine. Not sure how to start a vending machine business plan?
We’ve got you covered!
Location, Location, Location
Did we mention location? It’s probably the biggest hurdle you’ll have to overcome in the business.
You don’t want to put a vending machine in the middle of nowhere. You won’t make any kind of profit.
Going to a vending machine is an impulse decision. Office workers like to go in the afternoon to get a sugar pick-me-up, or a bag of chips to tie them over till dinner.
No one really plans on going to the vending machine. So think about what’s going to make your machine unique.
Are you filling the vending machine with things that people want? The more products, the better options for people.
However, you don’t want to cram everything in and then the product is damaged. Consider the size, shape and shelf space.
The key here is to pay attention to your customer’s buying habits. What seems to be moving quickly and what is sitting?
Talk to Business Owners
Think of places around town that would benefit from having a pizza vending machine. These are the business owners you need to be talking to.
Just be aware that you will get rejected…a lot. Pitch the idea to the owner and explain how it will profit both of you.
The more deals you make, the more your business relationships grow. Plus, word of mouth is always a huge win!
Wouldn’t it be great if people are talking around town about YOUR machine?
