Building an Ongoing Locating Program

If you really want to make it in this business then an ongoing location program is your only solution.

Some people in the vending industry will try to tell you that all you have to do is lay back and collect money. Sorry but that just isn’t true. If you attempt to sit back and collect the money you will be collecting less and less as time goes on. This is due to simple attrition: businesses close or move, vandalism problems or the location owner simply doesn’t want your machines around anymore. Many people just stuff these machines in the back of the garage or basement. Pretty soon, you have very few machines making money and a lot less storage space in your house.

Mastering an ongoing location program will not only get those idle machines making money, but will increase your profit on the vending business in general. Commit to spending 10% to 20% of your time on your routes to gaining and securing new locations. If you do not have idle machine then now is either a great time to expand your business or reanalyze your current route and re-locate poor performing machines. Over time, with an ongoing locating program you will have more machines averaging more profit.
