We Will Teach You The Vending Business

1-on-1 Training

We offer a half-day training seminar in beautiful Colorado Springs, CO Monday through Thursday. The training is in our warehouse where you can touch and feel the machines and you will meet the entire staff. It is 1-on-1, not in a group classroom like our competitors offer. It offers hands on experience with all our machines so you can decide which model is best for you.

Once you’ve decided on the machine that’s right for you, we will go in-depth with you on the ins-and-outs of every aspect of the machine, from advanced set-up and customizations, to repairs and maintenance. Next we will talk about other aspects of the business that you need to know, such as product selection, vending management software, and how you can secure high traffic locations.

When you leave the training, you will know everything you need to about starting and growing your vending business.

Healthy Vending

If you are looking to start a vending business, now is the perfect time because healthy vending is hot. Increasingly, consumers are demanding healthy snacks and drinks but most vendors are not providing it. 

If you are considering starting a vending business, or growing your current business, you will have a huge advantage over your competition if you focus on healthy products. The trend for healthy living is happening all over America now, so why not be part of the wave and join the fight for a healthy lifestyle by starting a healthy vending business?

Fully Customized

Not only do we offer affordable machines, but they can be customized inside and out to meet the needs of your customers.  Every location is different and deserves a vending machine that serves their needs.  This customized approach is virtually unheard of in the vending industry.  Most of our competitor’s machines all look the same with their branding and logo on the machine and the machines can’t transform between snacks and drinks either.

Our machines can convert into nearly anything you want. Some locations might need the machines to vend mostly snacks. Other vending locations might need mostly drinks. Some might need more sandwiches or salads. If you are limited to the same “standard” array of selections as found in most of our competitors’ machines, you will find it much harder to place them, or you won’t be able to capitalize on what your customers really want.

Secondly, we can customize the exterior of our machines with custom vinyl graphics that will give you that priceless competitive edge you need to secure the high-traffic vending locations. We can either customize the exterior graphics to match your branding, or we can create custom graphics with their branding on it.

Are you looking into starting a vending business?

Considering starting a vending business?

If you are considering a vending business as a possible side-business or full-time business opportunity, then you have come to the right place. Entrepreneurs in the vending industry will tell you that they started a vending business because of the flexibility, freedom and additional financial security that it offers.

Starting a vending business is not difficult, but you do need to beware of the sharks in the industry. There are too many overpriced franchise-style, healthy vending business opportunities that will try to convince you to spend $50,000 on five machine claiming that this is a good deal because of their location service, training, and management software.

We are here to tell you that you don’t need to spend $10,000 per machine in order to receive the valuable training and support that you need to succeed. We’ve been in the vending business since 2007 and have sold thousands of machines to new business owners looking to start a vending route and make residual income.

We have a simple plan that works, and we’d love to share it with you. Give us a call today or sign up for a free consultation to learn more about how you can start a vending business the affordable the way, with customized, healthy vending machines.

“Everything about our experience at the Discount Vending Store has been stellar — from the first day we went down to look at their machines to the technical support we get when we need it. They are professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive. Bill never makes us feel stupid no matter how simple our questions are and Jeff is always eager to work with us no matter what the issues are. Don’t bother buying your machines anywhere else. These are the pros!”

Buy Your Vending Machines

Since we have multiple machines to choose from, we will talk you through what is right for you. Our machines have many different optional features including cash, credit card and mobile payments. We have new as well as refurbished machines to help you save money.  Remember, you can see the machines and get training on them before you put one penny down.

Place Your Vending Machines

You find the locations where your machines will go and let us know when and where you want them shipped. Need help finding locations? Since our machines are fully customizable, they can be configured to meet the needs of nearly every location making them so much easier to place. We can offer tips on how you can secure the best location in your community.

Stock Your Vending Machines

Since we’re not a healthy vending franchise, we don’t require you to vend certain products. We will offer suggestions on the most profitable healthy snacks and drinks on the market today along with recommended suppliers. Further, we can provide market analysis on the snacks and drinks letting you know the best prices for you to set them at in order for you to maximize your profits.

We are here to help you start and grow your healthy vending business.

Affordable

We know that you want a vending machine that is both functional and affordable. Unfortunately, most healthy vending machines on the market are way over-priced.

We understand your needs and want to provide youth with the most value, along with the quickest return on your investment.

Most of our competitors, including the healthy vending franchises, sell their vending machines for $10,000 or more. Vending machines aren’t made of gold and shouldn’t cost that much. We provide new as well as refurbished machines, which are on sale for less than half of that cost.

Customizable

We believe that each location is unique and the configuration of the vending machine should be also. We can configure each vending machine to fit your needs. Do you need a full size snack machine, a drink machine or perhaps a combo machine? We can customize it before we ship it to your location.

If you want to reconfigure it yourself, we can provide extra parts so you can configure it as necessary.

Convertible

The Triple Profit Healthy Vending Machine is the most refreshing, colorful, convertible, healthy vending machine on the market and is only found at The Discount Vending Store. These machines are made in America and can easily convert between a snack machine, a drink, or a combo machine giving you triple the profits. Our unique 3-sided vinyl wrap can also be customized with your logo on it, making the machine the most customizable vending machine on the market. Bottles and cans of almost any shape and size, as well as pastries, chips, and healthy bars, can be easily placed in this machine.

1-on-1 Training

At The Discount Vending Store, we know that you want to be a knowledgeable and confident vending business owner. In order to do that, you need to understand all the ins-and-outs of the vending business. Unfortunately, since you have never owned and operated a vending machine before, it can seem overwhelming starting a new business or buying a big vending machine that you are unfamiliar with. This leaves you feeling overwhelmed and discouraged and you may feel that you will never succeed at starting your own vending business.

We understand your dilemma which is why we offer free training with every vending machine we sell. We have trained hundreds of customers so they can succeed in their new business and we can certainly train you as well. Click here to learn more about 1-on-1 training.

Free Storage

We now offer free storage on all our machines for a limited amount of time. Call us for details on your situation.
