See how the Antares Vending machine works
The Antares Refreshment Center Vending Combo is a versatile, compact, attractive system that works well in
offices, retail locations, breakrooms, etc...
This system has 4 main components: the snack machine, soda machine, dollar bill changer, & a stabilizing base.
The snack and soda vending machines are mechanical in their vending operation. In other words, they work like a gumball machine - put the coins in and turn the knob or handle. The only electricity required is for the cooling unit on the drinks and an as needed vend of the coin changer as it reads a dollar bill and ejects the change.
This vending combo is extremely quiet and is reliable. However, the construction may not be best for locations where vandalism is likely. They are very easy to work on & repair.
This vending machine has a sizable capacity considering it's small footprint.
Snacks - 9 selections with 125 to 140 items
Sodas - 7 selections with either 175 cans or 100 cans and 75 10oz. bottles. (Exception: late 2005+ models have 6 can selections and 1 selection for 12oz to 20oz bottles)
Change - holds $100 in changer
Antares machines often sell for as much as $6,000 ea. However, they are really worth less than half of this when compared to other mechanical combo vending machines. They are usually sold in package deals as business opportunities.
What many fail to realize before paying this outrageous price is that they are pressured into it via a scarcity tactic. "If you don't decide by Monday, you will not be one of the chosen ones.." However, do you really think that these companies will turn you away in a few weeks if you want to pay them tens of thousands of dollars? They go to many of the same cities each and every year; so there is no reason they would not be willing to sell to you later.
