It is impossible to say exactly what the right mix is to start out in any location. There are some favorites that you need to try in every location but you never know what is going to be hot in any location.
Your Vending Guru has conducted studies on locations and found that some locations go through two large canisters of Hot Tamales every month. With other good locations that don't use any Hot Tamales. Your Vending Guru also has a Chinese restaurant that was doing about $60 to $70 a month in sales. He had toys in the machine but they were in the smaller canisters. He moved them to the big canisters got had $100 to $120 in sales from the machine.
If you are starting a route with a large number of machines it is very difficult to customize each machine to the location. It is important to go back and make sure your product mix meets with your audience after you have all of the machines placed in the locations. Take it one step at a time. Stick with it, do something everyday to improve your profitability. If you have questions about what products do well in what locations contact Your Vending Guru. http://www.yourvendingguru.com/
