Business Overview:

This well-established vending route has at least 2 machines in 40 active locations (8 more are placed in inactive locations due to COVID). The company has a total of 130 machines, 47 of which are in storage (30 are functional). The routes are largely based in the San Fernando Valley, with these supplemented with a Downtown Los Angeles and Orange County route. As a result, the owner-operator restocks and maintains the units 3 days per week, 10 hours per day. They do not have or require contracts.

Note: This business is NOT an SBA loan qualifier and Seller Financing will not be offered. There is little if any negotiating room on this sale.

Property Features and Assets:

The 120 (90 working) vending machines will be included in the sale. The are comprised of a variety of brands that include Royal, Vendo, AMF, Rowe, and several more. The most common unit is the Royal 660 Coke machine, followed by the Vendo Pepsi units. 6 of the total units accept credit cards, do electronic inventory and provide activity reports. 50 accept dollar bills, while other have elevators and all have meters. The overall mix includes soda and snacks, with one coffee unit. Some of the units would cost $7,000 if purchased new, while others may be $2,500 - $3,000 new. Fortunately for a buyer, the owner is not pricing the business based on equipment value, despite that value amounting to a substantial portion of the purchase price. An estimated $150/unit in inventory (approx. $8k total) in inventory will be sold at cost at close; while $30 in change per machine will be reimbursed (approximately $2,400 total).

Market Competition and Expansion:

Due to the nature of the locations limited direct competition exists. There are the only vendors that operate in the locations. New operators can find locations for the 30 – 40 dormant units themselves or engage a locator for placement – as they no longer have a vending unit locator they work with. As management sources product from discount vendors, new management evaluate using specialty wholesalers such as Jetro/Restaurant Depot or a number of wholesale vending product suppliers. Bulk purchases can also further improve margins. They may also consider adding units or optimizing product selections in existing locations. The company does not place units in schools due to past vandalism issues, despite these being lucrative locations, they do service school staff in one non-LAUSD district. New management may return to schools. Finally, in October 2021, soda prices were increased from $0.75 to $1.00 without issue, and 2 located (4 units) were added. The impact of the additional locations and price increase are not indicated in the financials.
