Best supplier for products

Post by Quinch »

I have never operated washroom vending machines before but recently was asked to provide a machine in a hotel lobby that would sell mini toothbrushes, shower gel etc.

I would like to know if it is possible to fit these type of products into pots that fit a Pringles type (M42) machine and which websites/suppliers have the best products/prices? I would like to put a few lines of these type of washroom products in a machine that also has snacks and if possible use an M42 I already have rather than buy a specific washroom vendor.

Thanks

From searches online looks difficult to find products that I could vend for £1 and still make a profit (pot also costs 10p).

I think you will struggle to use a Pringles machine. Most of the stuff you would want to vend you could sel for a lot more than £1.

Tooth brush kits fit neatly into small boxes 10cm x 5cm x 2cm. There are machines that will vend these items.

If you want to use a Pringles machine for these I'd suggest you get a coin mech that takes 2 x £1 coins. Clenport do them.

You could then do toothbrushes, deodorant, etc. Perhaps even sell a few Pringles at £2 a pop.

You want a machine from Unicorn Hygenics, www.unicorn-hygienics.com can vend up to 10 items, adjust price for each item takes all silver and gold coins. I have one in a site with an anti vandal cover if interested, I have dabbled for 3 to 4 years but its not worth it for what I was vending which was condoms and products from Naughty Vend
