“Free on-loan” or free vending machines offer an alternative solution to your business if you wish to offer employees and customers the benefits of a vending machine, but without the financial outlay (or financial risk) or hassle of running it. A vending supplier will simply install, service, clean, re stock and maintain a vending machine on your premises. They set their products and prices and instead of charging rental fees, they simply keep the profits, or certainly a high percentage of the machine’s earnings (it may be negotiable to inflate the supplier’s prices to take a small amount of profit). You may be required to guarantee a minimum footfall for usage, but do check that no sales targets are set as part of the deal.
