Statistics to Help Shape Your Vending Machine Offering


Figures To Guide Your Inventory

Vending machines these days are equipped with several features to allow business owners to know when to restock or when a scheduled or unexpected maintenance is due. However, getting an aerial view on customer demands and prevailing trends goes a long way in helping to multiply revenue and also for business expansion.

With the help of research done by Field Agent, we’ve listed down a few important statistics that we believe can help every vending machine owner, starting fresh or in the business since a long time:

  • It was found that nearly 57% of the patrons visiting a vending machine did so during the afternoon period. This is the time when the lunch that people had starts to wear off, and it’s time for a quick snack or a drink. Within this spectrum, sugary snacks and beverages seem to have a higher demand, with savoury snacks hovering about at 58%.
  • The rise of health conscious consumers is most certainly not a fad. These conscious decision makers are focused on eating and drinking right. Following the sugary beverages, water is seen to be the highest purchased (51%) product from vending machines.
  • One of the most common bottlenecks for patrons using vending machines is the form of payment. Nearly 41% state that they are usually unable to buy from a vending machine because they were not carrying cash. Newer machines cancel out this issue by offering card payments and other forms of cashless payment methods.
  • Coming back to the point of healthy eating. Over 58% of people are more inclined towards healthier snacks and a larger percentage of this group comprises of women.

We hope that these statistics are able to guide your vending venture to being a greater success. For more information, our communication lines are always open.
