Vending Machines OKC | Preparing The Machine
This is podcast 32 with Kay and Kay vending, providing vending machines, Okc, and just want to talk about some of the things that we do to get prepared to go to your location. Um, and he know, like we said before, if you’re looking at the vending machines, Okc, uh, you’re looking at different vending companies, you know, they’re not all the same. Some might just throw those few snacks and some drinks and you never know what you’re going to get. ‘Em In might not come often enough. So you need to think about, you know, is this a good company? It’s going to be around that is going to, you know, take good care of the machines. And one thing we do is we prepare to go to every location before we even leave our office. And so, Vending Machines OKC, you know, that’s one thing that you’ve got to think about.
You know, what, what is going on on the back end. And really what we do is first of all, we can initially set, set it up and, and on all of our machines, we have decks, technology, which basically allows us to see what’s going on with the machine from our computer and we can set it up so that, you know, we’ve got all the selections in there and we know what’s, what, what it, what each selection is a, whether it’s a snack, maybe some chips, maybe it’s candy or maybe it is some cookies, whatever that we know. Also the drink selection, you know, with Soda, the type of soda a. So maybe it’s Dr Pepper is your first selection, second selections, Coke Mountain Dew, Pepsi. Um, and then maybe you have a monster in there, maybe some bottled water, gatorade, cool. Blue. Vending Machines OKC then we’ll set all that up and how much we put in.
And then we can go back and look and see how many have sold over since we went last time. And um, and so then we see that it needs, you know, maybe one selection is almost out and they’re starting to get kind of low. Then we need to get out there because we try to keep all our selections full Vending Machines OKC, and from there we will take that list, we’ll see what has sold and we will go down and in and a tip put in our bins. We have large bins that will put all the snacks in and we’ll go through, see how many we need. Add. A few extras will add about 10 percent more than what it says, just because you never know, you know, from the time you feel, feel your bin, you know, by the time you get there, you know, there could be a run on the m and m’s or something like that.
You never know. Vending Machines OKC, and so, uh, we will put that in there. So we, for the most part know exactly what we need. We can also look and say, hey, that hadn’t sold at all. It didn’t sell any last week. Let’s take it out or sad something new. And from there we can, um, you know, keep changing things up. And so we go through and prepare everything. And so that when we pull up, you know, we pretty much just grab it, get in there and get it filled, clean it up, do anything else we need to do to it. And um, and there you go. And that is something to think about when you’re looking at vending machines, Okc, um, you know, what, what type of service. So they going provide and we try to go for the, for the, for the absolute best service that we can, we can give.
And having that technology, that technology with the credit card readers kind of go hand in hand. Usually you can have it without the credit card reader, but you might as well put the credit card reader on because the most expensive part is having what’s called the toll limiter. I’m on the backside which credit cards also use. And we also put, you know, those credit cards on there. And so that technology gives us a great idea. And plus we’ll have an, you know, after we are there for a few months, we’ll have a lot of history with that. And we can also tell from history what, what needs to be brought, you know, how many ruffles, sour cream and Cheddar usually sell on a given week. Vending Machines OKC so all of that can be factored in and it just gives us a great idea of what we need to bring. And it really helps us, helps you, uh, to provide great service.
Um, so, uh, you know, one thing, if you’ve got an office location, you know, you want your vending machines to stay full, want to stay operational and so definitely go with a company that is going to work hard to keep those things full and not just kinda show up once a month, whether it needs it or not. Kind of deal. Um, you know, we, we, some locations, we go multiple times every week just because our larger accounts and man, they go through those things and we fill them up to the back. But they’ll sell out, you know, Vending Machines OKC, if we waited a week, even a, they would all sell out. And so we have to go multiple times. And so that’s just something, you know, to ask if you’re looking at a vending machine, a looking at the vending machine, Okc list and trying to figure out a vending machine company.
One thing also, you know, maybe your current vendor is not taking very good care of the machine. Um, you know, to definitely think ofK and k vending. We would love to talk to you about what we can do and how we can help and, and, uh, the various things that we, we’ve got going on with our company. And so, uh, and you know, I think you don’t want a large regional, maybe national vending company to come in. They’re huge. They’re just going to have minimum wage workers. They’re going to come in and you’ll see the same guy maybe for a few months. He’ll quit because he’s sick of it. And then somebody else will come in and you just never really know what you’re going to get. Um, you know, you also don’t want just real small that you don’t know if they’re going to be back in, Vending Machines OKC in business.
If they’re going to stay in business, maybe they throw a machine in thinking that ever become millionaires and they realized that, you know, throwing out one vending machine at locations, not going to make them a real rich. Um, you’ve got, have ’em for a company to exist, you know, you’re going to have to have, um, several vending machines and so you don’t want it too small where they’re, you know, they just like, I want, I want to try this vending thing, maybe throw out a machine. Um, also, you don’t want it too big because they’re not going to give you the, the great service that you deserve. And so I think it’s a company that’s small, that’s local, uh, where are you going to see the same people? People that care, family owned business, a k and k vending a can provide that. And so we would love to come talk to you about our vending service and all the great things that we offer.
We put credit cards on all our, our machines that is just essential today to have this credit cards on there. Um, everybody pays that way. We don’t ever require you to sign a contract and I think I heard the other day, somebody wanting some vending and they didn’t want to contract or you know, some something, some service with their office, they didn’t want to have to sign a contract. We’re never going to make you sign a contract mainly because you know, that that to us is just yelling idos those if you don’t do a good job, um, and we feel like we do a great job and that you’re, you’re going to want to stay with us for years and years and years. And that’s what we’re all about. Trying to build those relationships and keep those locations for a long time by providing a great service. And, um, you know, if something would happen and you know, you guys, maybe we’re going to do something else, then, you know, you can just tell us you want us out and we will get out.
Um, and we’re not going to hold you hostage to anything. Um, because we, we feel like we’re going to do a great service that you’re not gonna want to do anything else. So no contracts. Um, credit cards, we offer the lowest price guarantee, we’re going to give you a real low low prices on all your snacks and vending items. Um, we also do not charge a processing fee for credit cards, which a lot of companies will charge you extra for a, for using the credit card, maybe a ten cent extra fee. And so, um, you know, I think that’s something to think about. Um, you know, they’ll get you with all kinds of little little things and we try to keep everything as low as possible. Um, and also, you know, we’re, we’re doing things other than vending machines. We can do a pantry service which is a delivery service.
We could bring snacks in and drinks in and bring them to your office and then an invoice you for that. Or we’re doing micro markets which are just kind of small little kind of Deli setups in your break room. We can either bring our own shelving or use your existing shelving and refrigerator and we’ll have stuff out and people can buy them using their mobile app, um, that we have. And we’ll enter all their information and invite that way with self checkout. I world’s going to self checkout. I know Amazon is opening up stores where there is no employees or no cashiers I guess. Um, and so, you know, that’s just kind of the wave of the future. Walmart, target. Everybody’s got it. And so it’s kind of coming to vending also and an office type setting that’s going to work really well. Um, maybe in a more public area where there’s a lot of in and out, you know, maybe not work so well.
Um, and you know, there, there could be a risk of theft, but for the most part they find that in an office type setting that really doesn’t occur and you know, and if it does then we will have to figure out another solution. But a lot of things that we can offer. So give us a call. Four, one, five, five, two, nine, five, six, eight, four. Go to our website, vending. Okay. [inaudible] DOT com. And check things out, fill out a contact form and then we’ll come out and then figure out what’s best for you. So thanks for listening and keep buying from vending machines, Okc.
