Vending services are a great way to enhance your business. Providing beverages and snacks can go a long way with customers and employees, especially if there's no access to nearby stores or food courts. If you're thinking about getting vending machines for your office, you're probably wondering how much they cost to either rent or purchase.
How Much Do Vending Machines Cost?
The short answer is between $3,000 and $5,000 for a soda machine, and about $3,000 for a snack machine.
But what most people don't realize is that you can get vending services for free. That's right--if you want vending machines but don't want to deal with the hassle of stocking and repairing the equipment, vending companies will install and maintain the equipment for you. It's considered full-service vending.
If you'd still rather purchase equipment and handle your vending needs on your own, here are some general guidelines in regards to how much the machines cost.
Cost of Soda Machines
There are many different models on the market, but the two most popular soda machines are the glass front and the traditional stack vendor.

Glass front equipment like the Pepsi machine above can cost around $5,000 or more brand new, but a refurbished one will run about $3,000 to $4,000.
2. Traditional Stack Vending Machine
The typical vending machine similar this 660 8-Select Coke machine cost around $3,000 to $4,000 new. You can find a refurbished one for as little as $500 on ebay to about $3,000. But as the saying goes, you get what you pay for.
Cost of Snack Machines
Snack vending machines also come in various sizes and models. Some can even fit right on top of the counter in your break room.

The list above is a general guideline for how much vending machines cost. They vary greatly depending on the model, and whether or not the machine is new or refurbished.
