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!

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!

"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."

"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!"

"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
