Finding your customers / locations
For some people the idea of picking up the phone, arranging appointments with prospective customers and selling the idea may be daunting. As briefly explained in the previous paragraph, we can find your customers for you so all you have to do is maintain the sites. It is surprising how quickly your business can grow with this approach. Whilst we endeavour to provide you the best possible locations for your business, we cannot in any way guarantee the success of the location.
Maintaining your sites
Once your sites are up and running, you will be required to keep them stocked with products on a regular basis. At the same time you will cash the machine (all takings are yours). The machines are designed to be easily accessible, and Vending Solutions provides full training on the operating of your machines and advice on how to deal with your sites.
On average, one machine makes a profit of around R 2000 to R 4000 per month that is a profit of + – R 48000 per year, per machine. You could comfortably maintain around 12 machines a month generating a gross profit of R 576 000 year. We already have customers making good profits and purchasing machines from us on a regular basis. Please note that this is still a part time business. Bear in mind that these figures are only an indication of potential financial viability and may not be achieved. Your management style and overall commitment are crucial to success.
