Q: If I want to buy a vending machine what are the cost considerations?

A: Thinking of purchasing your own vending machine? Here's a breakdown of initial and ongoing costs to consider:

Machine Cost:

  • Soda: $4,000 - $6,000

  • Snacks: $3,000 - $6,000

  • Combination/Frozen: $4,000 - $9,000

Additional Costs:

  • Cashless Card Reader: $400 + monthly service fee

  • Repairs: $120/hour + parts


  • These are estimated ranges, and specific prices may vary depending on brand, features, and retailer.

  • Factor in ongoing inventory costs, employee time for stocking and maintenance, plus the potential cost of expired products.

Q: How much space do I need for a vending machine?

A: Most machines are around 72" tall and 31" to 45" wide and 32" to 37" deep, requiring a standard 3-prong. We consider electrical access, air circulation, and employee access for optimal placement. A space of 40" must be kept clear in front of the machine to allow for employees to access and for our technicians to restock.

Q: How many items can a machine hold?

A: It depends! Soda machines typically offer 8-10 selections, snack machines can hold up to 40 items, combination machines usually hold up to 35 items and frozen food vending machines usually hold up to 28 items. Remember, size variations might affect the final selection in your workplace.

Q: Ready to upgrade your break room with the perfect vending machine, but unsure where to start?

A: Skip the guesswork! Tell us your location, daily population, and desired offerings (snacks, drinks, frozen treats?), and our vending experts will recommend the machine that keeps your people fueled and happy. Whether you have a high-traffic office, a fitness center, or a unique business setting, we have machines for every need.

Q: Is your equipment new and modern?

A: Yes, we offer only modern equipment. New or refurbished, each machine is thoroughly tested and routinely upgraded for optimal performance. Trust Red Hawk Vending for reliable, up-to-date vending solutions.

A: At Red Hawk Vending, we leverage modern technology for a seamless experience: contactless payments, mobile wallets, digital offers, and real-time inventory management to ensure your employees stay happy!

Q: How long does installation take?

A: Vending machines take 10-15 business days, while micro-markets require around 30 days. We can schedule a consultation to discuss your needs and preferences.

Q: How many employees or customers do I need to get a vending machine?

A: Forget the "magic number" of employees! At Red Hawk Vending, we help you discover the perfect vending solution based on your unique needs, whether you have 25 or 250 people.

The reality is:

  • Hybrid work models can make traditional employee counts unreliable.

  • One-size-fits-all machines often lead to waste and missed opportunities.

  • Focusing solely on numbers ignores factors like accessibility, preferences, and alternative options.

Our approach:

  • Understand your situation: We assess your location, employee demographics, work model, and nearby competition.

  • Analyze usage patterns: We go beyond guesswork, using data to predict demand and optimize product selection.

  • Personalize your solution: We offer diverse vending machines and curated product mixes to fit your specific needs and budget.

  • Track and adapt: We monitor usage and adjust offerings to ensure your vending machine is always relevant and profitable.
