If you’re considering buying into a healthy vending franchise, I have a few words of caution before you decide. I have received too many calls and complaints lately from adventurous entrepreneurs who have heard the great sales pitches from the various business-in-a-box vending franchises that all claim to offer you a world of support to start up your business, a big warranty on the machines, locations for the machines, accounting software and the latest and greatest vending machines on the market. Unfortunately, after you’ve listened to them for a few hours and checked their references, you realize that the price is quite exorbitant.
I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to spend a hundred thousand dollars to get great insider secrets and a high quality healthy vending machine. At the Discount Vending Store, we have high quality healthy vending machines for sale at half the price of the Franchisers, and many times we are selling the exact same machine which they offer! You can check them out on our Healthy Vending Machines page.

We can also change out the coils inside the machine to accept more or less drinks or snacks as needed by your customers.
Vending Machine Franchise Success Depends On Location, Location, Location (and a couple more factors)
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…the number one thing you need to succeed in vending is a good location. The number two thing is a sharp looking, reliable machine. If you’re buying into one of the big box franchises for any other reason, then you’re a sucker. Sure they will offer you a lot of extra fluff but it’s just not worth the money. Many franchises do offer locations as part of their package or you can upgrade for an additional $1,000 or so. Please be very careful to not overpay for a location that is no good. I have personally heard from too many good people who were scammed by the vending locator. Be sure to check their reviews and ratings, and don’t trust their referrals they send you because they will pay them to talk to you. Further, you don’t have to be part of a franchise to get obtain good locations. There are plenty of good vending locators that you can hire or you can do it yourself.
Most franchises also offer a warranty on the healthy vending combination machines and free phone support as well. Let me just say that a warranty is only as good as the company that’s backing it up. What are the chances that a one year old company will be around to honor their extended warranty? Many healthy vending franchises never live to see their warranties expire so please be very cautious of this. Recently we’ve been seeing companies offer a lifetime warranty, but be sure to read the fine print because typically they are only offering 50% off after the first one year and then they have raised their prices by two times in order to cover the 50% discount.
If you are new to vending or wanting to buy a Healthy Vending Business, then I can see how you might be scared to do this alone and you may feel like you need to spend thousands of dollars to get the right education before jumping into the business. This is exactly how the franchisors wants you to feel. Starting a healthy vending business is not hard and at The Discount Vending Store we can help you succeed by providing you with a world of knowledge, on-site training, and protecting your pocket book at the same time.
