Ice vending machines have become more and more popular over the past few years. From a business standpoint it is dream come true.


The main reason ice vending machines can be so profitable are the low operating cost, and high efficiency. After initial cost of the machine, the only thing needed to keep it running is water and electricity. Since there isn’t much overhead, profit can add up quick. Most machines can be fairly easy to maintain remotely, and the benefits can be easily seen if you take a moment to examine them closely.


Most machines can generate over 5,000 pounds of an ice a day. At just one dollar per ten pound bag, that’s potential earnings of $500 a day! Since your ice vending machine is capable of running 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week this can add up very quick. At $500 a day, 365 days a year there is potential to make over $180,000 just in a single year. Now of course, you can’t expect to sell 500 bags of ice every day, but even at half of that you already look at profit in less than two years.


If you are looking into turning some profit quickly, in a low-overhead business than ice vending machines are for you. With the right location and the right amount of business, money will be made as fast as the ice machine can make it!
