Adding Ice Vending Increases Profits With Minimal Investment

Everett Ice Vending Machines

Ice vending is a unique business model that allows vending operators to add to their existing operation, make passive income with little to no training, doesn’t require keeping stock or inventory, requires no technical expertise, has a relatively low capital investment and has a very high return on investment.

An ice vending machine business does not require employees and can be run in your spare time. It is a business that is easy to scale rapidly and is part of a 20 year old, $835 Million dollar industry. Ice Vending is growing rapidly, by approximately 35% annually.

The Everest VX Ice Vending System utilizes a Five Stage Filtration System to remove chlorine, taste, odor and chemicals. UV sterilized to ensure safe, clean ice. Ice can be bagged or dispensed directly into coolers.

Advancements in Technology

The ice vending business is an industry that has grown from technological advancements. These advancements allow the industry to eat up the market share of older, antiquated distribution systems. For decades ice has been sold in ice chests at retail locations. These ice chests are filled on a daily basis by a regional distributor of ice who gets their ice from a large factory. This is a very expensive way of getting ice to consumers due to the high human capital requirement to fulfill this system. Ultimately, this cost is passed onto the consumer. Imagine if there was no distribution system. Imagine if you were the ice factory selling directly to consumers. Where would those savings (also known as profit) go?

An Eco-Friendly Business

Just think about the journey  bagged ice makes from the ice plant to a retailer. It is distributed by a machine, then bagged, loaded onto a truck, handled by a delivery person, rearranged by clerks and handled by consumers. Energy consumption, trucks on the road causing traffic and plastic bag consumption will all be reduced by using Everest VX models. Everest estimates that using its VX machines reduces the carbon footprint of the current central ice factory model by at least 85%.
