Vending Machines are Forever

What an interesting time to be alive! COVID-19 has given us a new perspective on how to run a business during times of social distancing. Especially when you are running a business that truly embraces the customer participation and experience. VendingLocater4u has been busy these past few months working through the best, safest, cleanest ways to make sure businesses around the community can still offer their vending machines and utilize our locating service. Businesses are having to work extra hard to keep themselves busy and efficient and we want our service to aid businesses in that mission.

Gumball and vending machines are not going out of style! They offer such a unique and timeless experience to customers. Our hope is that with the continued awareness of our environment and current business situation, we can find new and interesting ways to keep customers interested in these continual treasures. Currently, we are offering locating services for candy machines and honor boxes.

Part of what VendingLocater4u offers is helping you find and track the best locations for your vending machines. Allowing us to help you find the best locations not only relieves time and stress off your back, but gives the opportunity to focus on your products and doing what you do best.

As a reminder, we offer an exclusive benefit to our customers. You do not pay for our service until your machine or honor box is accepted by the business and safely placed there by you (must be placed and paid within two days). If there are any issues or that location does not work out, we will take care of them because we care about your business. Also, if the location does kick you out within 60 days (60 days for machines 30 days for honor boxes), we replace it. We are here for YOU.

What are Gumball Machines?

Picture this: You’re eight years old again and your mom or dad has stopped at a store for some needed grocery item. As you are leaving the store, a big glass jar of colors catch your eyes. Inside are hundreds of deliciously beautiful gumballs. You can’t possibly leave without one so you beg and beg for a quarter from your parents. Finally they cave, give you the quarter and you stick it in the metal base and turn the handle clockwise. Out pops a gum ball that gives you about twenty five minutes of joy. Your day has just been made by this small overlooked machine that is a little over one hundred years old.

Gumball machines were first seen in 1907 and originally cost one penny. Most often you see gumball machines with a clear glass (sometimes plastic) sphere, filled with colorful gumballs on top of a metal base. They have a metal lid with a key hole for easy removal and re-filling. The metal base has a coin slot with a handle that turns clockwise 360 degrees. The gumball is then dispensed through a chute at the bottom of the metal base almost immediately stopped by a metal hanging flap. During that process, the coin is deposited into the hidden coin bank. This is the classic gumball machine.

There are candy dispensers of all shapes and sizes and the options are endless of what delicious treat you can put into the dispenser. We offer locations for any type of machines. The One to Three Head Candy Machines, Four Selection Candy Machine, or the Eight Head Candy Machine. See pictures below.

One of the most difficult things to do in having vending machines is finding quality locations to place them. Finding good locations is not only time-consuming but it is also quite stressful because you might be calling business after business and not getting super great results. You want to get the most out of every single one of your candy machines and an effective way to do that is by employing an vending machine locator.

Utilizing a locator service might be the best thing you can do for your vending machine business. Unfortunately, there are quite a few vending locator scams on the internet with many unsatisfactory reviews which might seem discouraging. Here, at vendorlocator4u, we genuinely care about helping you find quality locations for you to place your boxes (check out our reviews on the right side of this website and on Facebook). We take care of finding your locations so that you can focus on what you do best. We have been in the vending machine industry for a very long time and had our own route for years.

Pay NOTHING in advance

Still not sure if our service is the best? That’s okay.

If there are any issues and they kick you out (rarely happens), we will take care of them because we care about your business. Also, if the location does kick you out with in 30 days, we replace it.

What is Honesty box (Honor Box) Vending?

What kind of vending option could you have for smaller business locations, with easy servicing and little to no upfront cost and maintenance for you as a busy vending box professional? One answer is an “honor box”, otherwise known as an “honesty box”. The honor box is a cardboard or plastic box and comes in different sizes. Larger boxes could have small bags of chips and even candy bars. Smaller boxes carry typical candies like York patties, smarties, lollipops, bite size candy bars, etc. The box has a cash compartment attached to it and people pay for the snacks based on an honor system – thus the name. This is absolutely the opposite of a soda machine, for example, where you are required to insert a certain amount of money before you get your item. With the honor box, it depends on the person to pay how little or high they wish to. Honor boxes are often found in restaurants, cell phone stores, lobbies, banks, or anywhere with a counter, etc.

Large Honor boxes or Snack Boxes are ideal for smaller companies that have 50 or less employees (not saying that a bigger company cannot have them either). It might not be practical for a smaller company to have a huge vending machine but an honor box would yield enough buyers to make it worth keeping it. It also takes up a lot less room, compared to many other vending machines.

Weird and Interesting Vending Machines

Category : Vending , Website News

It’s kind of strange, when you think about it, that vending machines don’t sell just about everything. They’re mostly used for snacks of course, But why couldn’t they sell… I don’t know, hats? Or cat food? Or cheap paperback novels? If you go to certain places in the world, however, you might just stumble across a vending machine that catches your eye for being a bit strange. A bit quirky. A bit full of utterly mad products. Here are some examples:

Live Crabs: A vending machine perfect for when you’re feeling lonely in Nanjing, China and want an instant crustacean pal to keep you company. The machine is kept at a cool temperature which keeps the crabs alive but in docile hibernation. If a dead one is spat out to you, you’re compensated with three live ones! Jackpot!

Holy Water: This is believed by historians to be the oldest vending machine in the world, dating back to the 1st century. The idea of holy water is slightly cheapened by the idea that it can just be dispensed from a rudimentary machine by pulling a lever, rather than being given to you by a human being with a claimed profound connection with God. The machine was invented because people were taking more holy water than they were paying for, which seems a cynical way for a religious organisation to operate. But it’s no use getting angry about something that happened 1,900 years ago, give or take a day.

Shoelaces: This machine was in use sometimes in America sometime in the 1940s, and that’s pretty much all we know about it. Inexplicably, it’s shaped like a lighthouse. What’s the connection between a lighthouse and shoelaces or a shoelace vending machine? We don’t know. That’s the most unbelievably dull product a vending machine could offer you. Still, for fans of shoelaces and lighthouses and literally nothing else, the 1940s were a golden decade.

Gold: GOLD. Would it surprise you if I told you that one of these machines was situated in the lobby of the decadent Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi? This is absolutely perfect if you’re disgustingly, nauseatingly rich, and you’re swishing around the lobby of your hotel and you realise you don’t have any gold on you. This would also make being a swashbuckling pirate with a parrot and a peg leg so much easier.

Crack Pipes: Seriously. These have been put in place in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside neighbourhood to stop people from using old ones that might shatter and slice the user open and allow disease to spread. A noble medical goal, but it will take a lot for me to get over the idea of a vending machine in the civilised world that dispenses crack pipes, of all things. I’m not what’s worse- this one, or the gold one. The gold one, probably. At least this crack pipe one has a reason to exist…

"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!"
 ~Christina


"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 vendiscuss.net 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 vendiscuss.net
