Science fiction was introduced to vending during the NAMA show in late October of 1997. A New Jersey start-up company, Fast Corp was very popular, lines were down and around the aisles of the show, people waiting to watch the machine’s robotic arm fetch the products which were being selected by show goers.
We placed a dozen or more of these coin operated frozen food wonders in car dealerships, schools, offices, factories, and hotels the entire year when they were introduced at the NAMA show. A coin operated ice cream vending machine vending machine can be one of the best “door openers” for overturning new high-volume vending-locaitons. This coin-operated frozen food machine includes a robotic arm that is certainly visible for the customer, because the machine’s upper half is just one big glass window. It moves its nozzle over the machine’s frozen bin where goods are stored, the arms nozzle sucks in the product that has been purchased with a vacuum device, then it moves around and places the selection into the delivery area and drops it.
The robotic arm experienced a couple issues at first, but all coin-operated machines proceed through a Bata-test period, and Fast Corp corrected the problem by fielding and acting on all-complaints. Do manufacturers of vending equipment test their new machines before they start to distribute them? Yes, obviously they actually do. Do some manufacturers miss some problems or begin to distribute their vending machine before each of the troubles are completely solved? Yes! Why do you reckon that Ford, GMAC, Toyota, etc constantly have recalls? Because every new product comes to a point where manufacturer just must start selling their product or they may have just did not identify all of the machine’s problems. I would personally not get a used Food Court machine that was made-within the first 36 months of manufacturing. Other years are common right; investing in a used or a used refurbished frozen food vending machine can be extremely cost effective.
Lets be clear, if you decide to buy a used machine of any sort, ensure that you jot down the serial number from the rear of the machines and call the machine’s manufacturer; if it has had problems, the manufacturer generally will be really direct and layout the problems that existed and just how they were resolved or what you need to look-out for.
Locating Soft Ice Cream Machines
Almost all vending providers use a pessimistic reaction if they are ask to offer a specific table top ice cream vending machine to get a precise job, so that we use their negativity against them, here is a few things i am referring to. The normal vending machine-company only sets aside 10% or less for brand new machine purchase every year. This means when they don’t already own the coin operated machine which has been requested they think long and hard before they will likely purchase a $5,000 piece of equipment.
Your competitors will attempt to beat all requests for top-tech vending machines and charge card acceptors; this works a great-deal of times unless there is a 3rd party active in the conversation. This is where dangling a frozen food – ice-cream machine while watching decision maker works like a charm. For instance, we speak with hotels and xyzvqy and provide them a quick Corp machine when we can takeover their snack or cold drink vending, we tell them our frozen food vending-machine will come stocked as to what ever they select from our listing of frozen food products; frozen, burgers, dogs, pizzas sandwiches and entrees like pasta, grilled chicken and Chinese food, frozen soft ice cream cones, pints, drum-stick and ice cream sandwiches or a combination of both. We also offer them credit card acceptors on all machines.
Stand back and allow the sparks fly; generally when they similar to their vending company they may wish to talk to the business and ask for the vertical soft serve ice cream vending machine they now only have to have. In the event the company says no or attempts to switch those to cold food, we end up having a unique vending contract for frozen food. When the contract is already up, even when they like the vending company presently providing them service there exists a better than 50% chance of overturning the agreement for entire vending services.
