Early vending machines have been around since the 1880s and gradually evolved into a $2.6 billion dollar global industry. The industry began selling postcards on train station platforms in the United Kingdom, but is most well known today for dispensing pre-packaged beverages and snacks.

In the United States, vending machines are a lucrative sales channel in airports, train stations, and bus stations. As you already know, vending machines work around the clock, never complain, or ask for a raise so this can be an appealing business to own from an operational standpoint.

While placement in a high-traffic area will always be the most important factor for success in this business there are other improvements you can make to increase sales over a collection of vending units. One way is to feature eye-catching marketing slogans, taglines, and even hash-tags on vending machines to capture the curiosity of prospective customers. These are our favorite slogan ideas organized by category for a vending machine business.
