What can I vend in my candy machine?
These machines are capable of vending much more than just candy. Bar owners occasionally use them to dispense peanuts. Health clinics have used them to dispense vitamins. They can also be set up out doors to dispense pet or fish food. There are many more possibilities of items that can be dispensed in these machines. Our bulk candy section is full of great options of what you can stock your machine with.
How do I adjust the candy wheel?
First you need to take off the top lid so you can remove the globe. Then you once you’ve removed the brush plate you can take the candy wheel out. Most candy wheels have a metal covering over the plastic wheel. This can be adjusted to dispense the maximum and minimum amount of candy possible. You will have to determine what amount delivers the most candy to your customers, while still maintaining a profit. By minimizing the returns on the customer’s purchase you risk losing repeat business so it’s important to find that happy medium.
-Because these machines are dispensing edible items, cleaning your machine regularly is a must. A clear globe and spotless presentation is much more enticing to your potential customers.
-When vending candy like Mike & Ike’s, jelly beans, or Hot Tamales---especially in humid climates---you may want to spray them with cooking oil and mix them around in a large bowl before stocking them in your machine. This prevents them from sticking together and enhances their ability to vend.
-If you have more than one machine, try a different combination of candy and mix it up. This will help you determine which type is most popular and profitable so you can stock more.
