What else should I look for when buying a refrigerated beverage vending machine?
Most sites have a contract spanning several years with a vender operator, who is responsible for providing drinks, snacks, and other vending services. Generally the operator owns the vending machines but you may have some opportunities to work with them to get energy efficient machines that will cost you less to operate.
If your beverage contract will soon expire, request ENERGY STAR machines in your next request for proposals.
If you are currently in the middle of a vending contract, talk to your operator about either converting your current fleet of vending machines to more efficient ENERGY STAR models or upgrading your existing machines to ENERGY STAR levels.
Be sure to look for the ENERGY STAR when shopping for a vending machine
