Bin Size Matters
When your customers need to get ice, they want to get it right away in the most convenient way possible. Maybe they need to keep their catch-of-the-day fresh, chill their beverages, or get ready for a special event. Nothing is worse then when your potential customer comes to your ice vending machine and discovers that the ice bin is empty. That disappointment that they feel can turn into resentment and that may mean you’ve lost their business forever. The best way to avoid this problem is to make sure that you purchase an Ice House America ice vending machine with large ice bins and a capacity that is flexible.
Our ice vending machines come in three different sizes, depending on your location. All of our models give their owners and franchisees excellent cost and flexible capacity. Customers will be able to purchase bulk ice in 10, 16 or 20 lbs bags. Our bulk ice vending machines are perfect for:
- Convenience stores
- Apartment complexes
- Hotels and motels
- Commercial business centers
- Retail shopping centers
- and many other locations!
