When It Comes to Ice Production, Components Count
As you research the best ice vending machine manufacturing companies, you may have noticed some of the machines at different companies have the same ice production or storage capacity. In fact, some companies even use the same ice makers. It may seem like that means both machines will function the same, producing identical profits, but there’s a lot more that goes into a successful ice vending machine. That’s why you need to consider the components of a vending machine.
Just like the well-known proverb states, “it’s what’s inside that counts” – and that’s no different when it comes to ice and water vending. At Everest, we work hard to innovate and engineer the most advanced machine on the market to make your life easier and your business more profitable. We are confident the results speak for themselves.
Let’s say you’re looking at two machines that have seemingly identical ice production and storage, and one of them is an Everest machine. You might be thinking they would produce the same results, but the problem with this comparison is that while both full bins start with the same amount of ice in them, only one of those machines will allow you to dispense and sell every bag of ice it can produce – and that’s an Everest VX.
You can’t sell ice that is melting after being beaten down into chips by a heavy metal bar during the agitation process. You can’t sell ice that has formed along the sides and corners of the machine, just out of reach of the beater bar. Thanks to our patented VersaVend technology, an Everest machine only makes ice you can make money on – down to the last cube. No ice bridging, agitators, or augers.
VersaVend is our revolutionary one-moving-part technology, and at more than 7 million jam-free vends and counting, the numbers speak for themselves. One moving part means eliminating the need for multiple motors, outdated agitation techniques, and inefficient components that are more likely to break down and cause expensive maintenance issues while simultaneously losing a hefty percentage of the ice produced by the ice maker.
And isn’t it strange how companies with outdated technology seem to have pricey annual maintenance plans? It’s almost as if they’re making money off their refusal to innovate, and you’re paying the price. Don’t pay hundreds or thousands of dollars a year for bad engineering.
Water Treatment Doesn’t Have to Break the Bank
With old technology, it’s not just wasted ice, either. Overpriced water filtration systems using reverse osmosis cost more but give less. The way reverse osmosis works is that water passes through an expensive membrane filter to remove impurities—but it removes minerals, too, leaving an unpleasant, metallic taste.
Not only does that process waste a massive amount of water, hurting your utility bills AND the environment, but it takes much longer to recover. You could run out of water faster, or the filtered water necessary to make ice, which means missing out on profits. Plus, when you take into account the initial purchase expenses of adding on water vending AND reverse osmosis filtration, it’s going to add up fast.
At Everest, not only is our water vending standard on every machine but so is our Five-Stage Filtration System from Everpure. This is the same filtration system designed for and used by McDonald’s to provide the well-known, great-tasting water, soda, and coffee customers have become accustomed to for decades. You don’t have to spend tons of money on water quality – if it’s good enough for “billions served,” it’s good enough for your ice business!
Don’t waste ice, water, AND money on an outdated and inferior machine. At Everest, we offer ice and water vending machines with the most standard features in the industry, because we’re here to give you the tools and help you need to succeed. We’re not here to take away from your profits, or give you a second full-time job with a machine that needs extra maintenance. Start your journey to a TRULY passive income with Everest – because we’re Always Climbing.
