Vending Machines For Apartments | What Types of Vending Machines Are Best?

Since the outbreak of the coronavirus in the United States, the majority of Americans have been taking shelter in their homes. Many people are isolating themselves and avoiding stores and restaurants unless absolutely necessary. During this unprecedented time, having a vending machine nearby for people can be a convenient perk. In particular, larger apartment complexes and communities stand to benefit the most from installing a new vending machine. If you’re looking for a little passive income during this time, here are a few types of vending machines that will be great for your apartment building.

Drink Vending Machines

Many businesses have been forced to continue their operations remotely, and now there are more people than ever working from home. With that being the case, there is a need for having refreshments available on demand. Having a drink machine around your apartment complex will work great for the same reasons they work great in your office break room. After all, everybody needs a little pick me up throughout the day. And choosing a drink vending machine allows you to stock options other than just soda so you can make sure there’s something that everyone in the building can enjoy.

Snack Vending Machines

Not many people are keen on going out to get groceries unless they need to right now. On top of that, many are avoiding restaurants as well to reduce their risk. Snack vending machines can be a great compromise for those who need a little snack to tide them over in between grocery trips. Having the option to grab a little comfort food from a vending machine can be a nice morale boost for anyone tired of being stuck around their apartment all day.

Combo Vending Machines

While apartment buildings do make for a great vending machine location, sometimes the space available is limited. In those cases, a combo vending machine may be the best option. Save yourself the difficult decision of whether to go with a snack or drink machine and just get one that does both! With one of these machines you’ll be able to provide everybody’s favorite drinks, chips, candy and other snacks and refreshments from one convenient location. Combo vending machines are also a nice option if you don’t have a lot of extra money to invest in your vending machine business. They’re almost like two for the price of one!

Coffee Vending Machines

For some people, their morning routine used to involve grabbing a coffee on the way to work. Now that they're working from home, they’ll either have to make their own coffee every morning or go without. That is unless there’s a coffee vending machine conveniently located right inside their apartment complex! For those who don’t feel like brewing their own cuppa joe everyday, having a coffee vending machine close by will feel like a major blessing. This type of vending machine is more of a niche fit than snack, drink and combo machines. However, if placed in a location with the need, it can be a great apartment vending machine.

Times are tough right now and if you’re looking for a little extra income, starting a vending machine business may be something to look into. If you know of an apartment building that could use a vending machine, now is the time to take action.
