Honor Snack Boxes – Quick Overview – Locations?

Category : Honor boxes , locating

Honor snack boxes are an exciting twist on the chunky, mechanical vending machine. They’re delightfully simple and optimistic, and when placed in the right places are really generating fine income. The honor snack box is what it sounds like – boxes of snacks that work on the honor system. People are allowed to take whatever food they like, and they are encouraged to pay by their decent consciences. You might be surprised at how decent most human beings actually are. Of course, there will be the odd one who just wants to scavenge free food, but most people will appreciate the trust and convenience of the honor box and compensate you for the amount of food they take.

Anyone can pick up a few honor snack boxes and make money off of them. OK, you’re unlikely to be buying a mansion off your honor box proceeds, but you’ll pick up a welcome form of supplementary income that could mean you can, for example, make a few more important payments and supplement your main vending route. There’s a strong market for them as well, as they fill an overlooked hole in the current vending market. For some places, bringing in a full vending machine would be unwieldy and impractical. There simply would not be enough people passing by it every day to justify its existence, or there just is not enough space. This is where the honor snack box comes into its own; its more compact size is just right for satisfying the snack cravings of a small group of employees or customers.

To get the most out of your honor snack box, you’ll want to find the best places to place them, and an effective way to do that is by employing an honor snack box locator. They will use well-placed phone calls as well as good old fashioned human to human contact to find places that are willing to stock the boxes and will guarantee a good flow of people who want to use them. The one thing we would say about using an honor box locator is to make sure you don’t pay up front for their services. Find a vending and honor box locator that proves themselves before you pay, that they can deliver on their promises to get your honor boxes in all the right places. If paid in advance, there’s no guarantee you’ll get a service that matches the fee.

When you’re hungry at work and want tasty treats at a reasonable price, an honor snack box is an absolute blessing. Their humble appearance is part of their overall charm; they’re honest, straight forward ways of selling a product, and they could make you a tidy sum. They speak to a real decency in the human spirit, thriving on the idea that people are essentially good, and that makes it a genuinely refreshing way to make some extra income. Order a couple of boxes, and see what the honor snack box can do for you!

Best Vending Locators?

Who Should I Choose to Locate My Vending Machines?

It seems like a hard question to answer. After all, your business is (or will hopefully become) your livelihood. You wouldn’t want to trust just any brokerage with investing your money and assets, and this situation is no different. You have vending machines that you have purchased with your own money. You have put time, effort, and elbow grease into this and you want to be sure that your future or current business is in amazingly good hands.

When we throw around terms like “The Best Vending Machine Locators in the Country”, we don’t do so lightly. If you do a quick search on Google for “Vending Locators”, do you know what you will find near the top of the search results? You will see one of a few things: Companies with great reputations and companies that have a large advertising budget. We are not saying that the two cannot go hand in hand, but at present (in the current industry) they seem to be mutually exclusive.

Next try a search for “Vending Locator Scams” or something similar. You will find a good bit of complaints from unsatisfied customers. The one thing you won’t find is a bad review for us here at VendingLocator4U. The reason is our outstanding customer service. We take being a vending locator seriously. Your success becomes our success. We have amazing pricing and warranties on our bulk vending locations and in doing so we hope to earn your business. Furthermore, we would like to keep it and have you return to us for all your locating needs. Could we overcharge and demand money upfront? We could but it would sacrifice what we stand for as a company and we would not stand out from the crowd.

Notice that I said earn your business earlier? This is not a sales pitch. At VendingLocator4U we don’t believe we have to sell you on our services. Our pricing is affordable and we don’t ask for a single penny upfront before we start locating for your machines. You don’t pay us anything until the machine is placed. If you aren’t happy with the location, we offer amazing warranties that you can check out by clicking here. 

Back to the original thought of who is the “best” vending locator or who you should choose to locate your machines:
It should be us. This sounds prideful to a degree and we understand that. At the end of the day, customer service and pricing speaks for itself. Give us a call or send us an email and see how quickly you get a response. Request 1 or 2 locations to start our with and see the way that we work for you. You will not want to use a different locator for any of your bulk machines after a trial run with us.

We both want our businesses to grow and we would love to have you as one of our clients. As your business grows larger and larger, you don’t have time to locate and we will continue to be there for all of your bulk locating needs. You will have more time to service machines and make more money from your bulk vending business.

Can you say win-win? We don’t just say it, we make it a reality. Give us a try for your bulk vending machine locations, we guarantee we won’t disappoint.

Vending Locators – Best You Can Find

Category : locating , Vending

Vending Locators. You can search far and wide but if you don’t know exactly what it is you are hoping to find, you will often find something less than what you desire. This is true when searching for a locator for your candy or gumball machine as well. You do not want the wrong company as your locator for a plethora of reasons, and you need to know what exactly it is you wish to find.

What Qualities Should I Look For In A Vending Locator?

This is your bulk vending business. Just that statement alone should tell you a lot about the search for the perfect bulk vending location finder. It is Your Business, and you wouldn’t want just anyone representing you. This is or will become your livelihood and that is the best way to approach this transaction. The second part of the statement above, Vending Business. This is a niche industry and that is important to the qualities we will be looking for in a good locator. The first gumball machine locator or candy machine locator quality/trait that we want to look for is:


This is Your Business, and without trust you have nothing. In your day to day life, you trust many people to provide certain services. Dry cleaners, mechanics, plumbers, and even co-workers in the workplace. Without trust you cannot have a productive business relationship with anyone. You should not have to worry about where your money is going and when your product or service will arrive. We accomplish this as a locator by providing our “No Money Up-Front” feature. You don’t pay anything until the location has been provided and you have placed your candy machine. We furthermore offer location replacement warranties that rival most other locating companies. As a locator, we strive to earn your trust and business. That’s why we also value:

Customer Service

If you are looking for a locator to place your machines, this is another quality that can often be overlooked. This quality can include fast response times and communication. If you are having an issue with a location or are looking for a status update, you should not have to wait a week before an email response is received. Within our company, emails are answered often within a few hours if not sooner. Alternatively you can always give Rodney a call for an even faster response. This is all part of the great customer service here at VendingLocator4u. You as the customer and client should be satisfied and overjoyed with the service that you receive. Quality locations are one thing, but the costumer service cannot be overlooked. We want to take care of you and we stress this quality if you look elsewhere for your locating needs. If other locator companies have let you down, turn to VendingLocator4u to restore your trust in the business. If you are taken care of and trust the company, you still should be looking for:


Regardless of the number of machines you have ordered, you want to see a prompt return of locations. From speaking with our clients, we offer the fastest return of locations in the industry it would seem. If you try out other vending machine or gumball machine locators you will often see return times as far as a month or two out from your location request date. Unless the area is completely saturated and difficult to locate in, this is a ridiculous amount of time for you to have to wait. We work with you every step of the way and if there is difficulty locating in a particular area, we will ask for more zip codes or keep you updated on all progress. One last quality to be wary of, and we wish we didn’t have to say it:


There are actually gumball machine locating companies that will take your money and request for locations and not complete a job for months, if at all. Good luck getting your money back from them! This is a sad world to live in where some businesses cannot be trusted, but it does happen quite often. This is another reason that we accept no payment until the machine is placed. We don’t get paid, until you have a bulk candy vending machine on location! We do not do partial or incomplete jobs, we do the job that you ask us to do and that is find locations for your machines. Do not accept less than the best, try us out today!

You will be hard pressed, it’s actually impossible at the time of writing this article, to find a negative review for VendingLocator4u. Is this because we pay people for good reviews? Is it because there are so few reviews? No. This is a company where we take pride in our work and are not afraid to earn your business.

Vending Locators – Why Hire Vending Locators for Your Small Machine Business?

Category : locating , Vending

Vending Locators

Some will tell you there is no reason for this service, after all you could do it yourself. Right? Couldn’t you be your own locator for your own vending business? Why WASTE money on a service that you can provide for your own business?

Let’s think about that for a moment…

Is this really a waste? Let’s think about any other service you pay for. You might hire someone to mow your lawn, wash your car, groom your dog, fix your car, repair your roof, file your taxes, legalize your business with the state and possibly even design your website. These are all services that you either:

A. Don’t have time for
B. Don’t have the expertise and confidence to perform

Either way that ball rolls, you do pay for services all the time. The services you pay for bring you value either in saved time or more revenue down the line. Vending locators can actually do both. For instance, website designers often spend years honing their skills to a science. They understand every aspect of web design and do a great job.

You hire a web designer because you don’t have years to learn the skill. Furthermore, you don’t understand the complexity and nuance of designing a webpage. If you don’t have years, you hire a designer. Who do you think designed this website? Our vending route owners?

Hiring Vending Locators

Vending Locators

Waste of your time and lost revenue for your business.

How to choose a Bulk Vending Locator!

Choosing your bulk vending locator

A Bulk Vending Locator can be your best friend when it comes to finding the perfect locations for your bulk candy machines, gumball machines, honor boxes and honor snack boxes. When you use the right locator service they will locate businesses that will treat your machines well, look for longevity, foot traffic or break room, and use a time tested formula for finding new homes for your bulk vending machines.

The bulk vending locator service that you choose should be able to use a program to and experience to find the right locations for your candy machine or bulk vending equipment in general. I personally don’t use an in person locator due to the fact that you have to pay at least half up front to even get them there and in my experience there are a lot that just drop your vending equipment in the first spot they find and move on to the next. Now, they may not be like that! But guaranteed they require at least half up front!

You will want a locator that knows where to look so you can make the most amount of profit, not just in the first month or 2 until the upper management comes in and has it removed, but long term meaningful income that stays the course to make you money month after month! I have my first location from 12 years ago that I have only repaired 2 doors on it! It’s not a home run every month, but steady income that never fails! That’s a smart investment in my opinion!

Just remember, your machines aren’t going to make you money in the garage, living room, or worse yet in storage where they are costing you money!!!!

Money Made Vending!

Choose a locator that will answer all your questions with satisfactory answers and not beat around the bush about the subjects. It is tough to say how much locations will make, nor will anyone with experience give you number, but the bulk vending average per month is over $7.00 per head. Now, depending on the equipment and product that varies, but that’s the average.

A good bulk vending locator service won’t take months to find you locations and have lack of communication. They will stay in contact with you when you have questions and answer your questions same day. The locator service should be able to get your locations in a timely manner as well. This doesn’t mean it won’t take a week or 2 to find your locations, you might have a more saturated area, but weeks on end and no results is not OK.

An honest locator will often let you go to the location and see if you approve of the vending locations before you install the bulk vending machine or gumball machine,  and better yet, doesn’t accept money up front or before you install your vending equipment! The vending locator is responsible for making sure you are happy with their choices. It will be just a matter of time before you are enjoying the profit! Before long you will have a lucrative business you can rely on!

Above all else, make sure to look up the businesses on Google and check their ratings on Google! Don’t just look at the people they give you for references! Anyone can give you a list of people that say they have done good. Do your research!

Bulk Vending Locations Worth having?

Category : locating

What bulk vending locations are worth having?

That’s a good question! Some feel it’s only high traffic area’s that work for candy machines. Not completely true!! I’ve had vending locations with only 3 employee’s that did better than a location that had 80!
It all depends on the type of vending equipment you have from a gumball machine, double candy machine, triple head, Uturn 4 selection, or an 8 selection Terminator candy machine.
Not only does the type of candy machine you have matter, but how many employee’s for the TYPE of location. Yes, there is many criteria to compare! 

This is only 2 of the type’s of criteria that we have to take into consideration when looking for your locations.
An honor box locator, candy machine locator, or bulk vending locator (however you want to call it) needs to have a conscience first, care about your future second, their reputation, and how they interact with everyone.

How to choose the best bulk vending locator

How to choose your bulk vending machine locator:

Whether you run only bulk candy machines, gumball machines or honor boxes… you can benefit greatly from a locator. The problem is, how do you choose one to trust your money with? More importantly, how do you trust someone with not just money, but your future? The future of your business can hinge on sound financial decisions, and your vending locations are your prime factor in profiting from this industry.

There are many aspects to consider, I’ll touch on a few of these today:

Does the vending locator have, or have they ever had their own vending machine route?

If not, then how can they know what really works in your machines? How do they know what it’s like to deliver your candy machine or honor box to a location and not be able to install it? Or how do they know the way it feels to spend hard earned money on bulk vending or candy machines just to have them making such a small return that it doesn’t even pay for gas?

At, we have had and operated a bulk vending route with many types of machines. From U-turn terminators, double head candy machines, triple head, and even single head gumball machines! We still currently run our route and it grows and gains every day!

Learn more about us here!

How much deposit should you pay a bulk vending locator?

Most require minimum of 1/2 down or all up front! Why?! Most company’s require money up front or even half down because they pay their staff hourly or hire a telemarketing company to find the locations for them. Most of the time they have never had a gumball machine, serviced a double head candy machine, refilled an honor box, or even a U-turn 8 selector! The problem with this is that they can take as much time as they want to work on your order and get to it when they feel like it!

Stop! Stop paying your hard earned money up front for you vending locator! Here at we don’t require ANY MONEY UP FRONT!  That’s right! We don’t get paid until you have a chance to INSTALL YOUR CANDY MACHINES FIRST!

We are the best when it comes to bulk vending locators.

If you don't trust us, simply see what others are saying!

"I found Rodney when I was at a very bad place financially and with our vending business.

Not only did Rodney help get us the locations we desperately needed, he has gone above and beyond to help me personally with staying positive, he's provided bulk distributors, resources for book keeping, how to get more efficient, ways to make the most of our machines, and things to do to keep the ball rolling in a positive direction.

I could go on forever and still wouldn't be able to say enough about what a great person Rodney is, what a change he's been to my business and life, and how glad I am we found him... I just wish it would've been years earlier!"

"Me and Rodney were in contact for a short period of time before I decided to try him out. I started with a small order but changed it to 35 machines. The day after he pulled the list for my area I had 5 locations sent my way!  

The best part about how family vending works is that I can place the machines before I pay! So if there is a problem, I can bring it to Rodney's attention right away and not have my money tied up until it is fixed.

He also offers a one time relocation of any machines where that location is a dud. Truthfully I was not to into the idea of paying someone to locate these machines and driving the money I have invested up but I am very glad I did. These guys have been fast, professional and on top of every email and I will continue to use them. Thank you so much Rodney and I hope that people see how good of a job you do through this."
~ A user from Maine

"Very refreshing telemarketer experience! I highly recommend he and his staff. I'm over 30 locations now with Family Vending and I am pleased with results!"
~ Eli

"Obtained some mint box locations for me and followed my request for restaurant locations.  Drop off went smoothly and I placed all beside cash register. Thank you Rodney for providing good locating services!"
~ Vendor for over 8 years in North Carolina

"I've worked with 4 locators to date and Rodney is the only one I would recommend. He does everything over the phone and got us locations quickly. I don't know why it's so hard to find more people who locate who are as honest and hard working as he is but I wish all of my experiences were as good as the ones with him!" - A user from
