Is the Ice and Water Vending Business Model for Me?

One of the reasons many people want to have their own business is to have more time to enjoy their lives — not to add more and more responsibilities to their lives. They want to run their business and then enjoy the fruits of their labors at the end of the day. Few business opportunities actually let you do this – but the ice vending business model does.

ICE & Water vending – is it for me?

Ice and water vending is a 20-year-old industry, and there are thousands of ice and water vending machine owners running successful businesses in every corner of the United States and many countries around the world. This is not a new business. You are not a guinea pig being used to determine if a business opportunity is a viable one. This is a tried-and-true business model already being used by thousands of people to create passive income to travel more, to prepare for retirement, or just spend more time with family.

If you’re looking to make passive income, even making money while you sleep, ice vending is a perfect fit!

Ice and water vending is a unique business model that allows you to own your own business, make passive income with little to no training, doesn’t require keeping stock or inventory, requires no technical expertise, has a relatively low capital investment, and has a very high return on investment. Ice vending does not require employees and can be run in your spare time. It is a business that is easy to scale rapidly and is part of a 20-year-old, $835 million dollar industry. Ice vending is growing rapidly, by approximately 35% annually.


Most, if not all, business opportunities list a required “liquid capital” requirement, but to actually get started and get your business running, the total investment is much, MUCH higher. Ice & water vending machines are a business in a box. Once you purchase a machine, that’s it! There are no additional costs. No franchise fees. No licensing fees. No profit-sharing. No requirement to purchase anything additional.

You can start your new ice vending business with a low initial capital investment! There are not many businesses you can start with as little cash out of pocket. This low initial investment allows for a rapid return on your investment.


An Everest ice and water vending machine has the smallest footprint in ice vending at just 20 square feet. Unlike our competitors’ huge machines that are difficult to place, hard to move and expensive to install, the Everest VX Series machines can be set up and selling ice the same day. Our machine is eight feet tall so it’s certainly big enough to draw attention and customers, but our compact, 20 square foot footprint makes your Everest machine fit just about anywhere! At a storefront. In a parking lot. Under an overhang. Anywhere!


Every Everest machine is designed to be installed without any special training. Our machines only require three simple connections: power, water, and a simple drain. These connections can be made in minutes from the time the machine is delivered to your location, making the machine installation easy and quick. You can have your business up and operating the same day the machine is delivered.


With our simple, one-moving part design, the time requirements are minimal. Unlike our competitors, our patented VersaVend dispensing system requires zero maintenance. Our competitors’ machines are so complicated you’ll need special training and a LOT of your time just to keep them running. You probably aren’t looking to buy another full-time job! Everest has you covered. 


In what other business can you operate a single or even multiple locations but require no employees? You can operate many Everest ice and water vending businesses in your spare time! Start your ice vending empire today!


All other vending businesses require you to buy, stock, and carry bulky and expensive inventory. The Everest ice and water vending machine makes its own inventory using water and electricity. No product to stock. No inventory to worry about. Everest makes it simple!


The Everest VX Series machines are the most energy-efficient on the market. They only require a 30AMP electrical service. Our next nearest competitor is 60AMP and they go up to 200! Because our machines are so efficient, they make 10 pounds of ice for around $0.07. You can sell that product for $2.00-$3.00. That’s up to 98% gross margin! Over 4,000% mark-up! That’s a high profit margin!


A poor performing ice and water vending location can produce a return on your investment in as little as 2-3 years! A typical location in 1 to 2. Home run locations even less! Ice and water vending is a profitable business that can be run in your spare time. Want to see more numbers? Use our return on investment (ROI) calculator and see how much you can be earning.


One machine, two machines, three machines more! Everest ice and water vending machines are easy to place, easy to install, and easy to operate. We offer remote machine management which allows you to log into our portal to track sales, check on your machine, receive machine status updates or even vend a bag of ice to a waiting customer while they stand in front of the machine, from anywhere in the world! Owning multiple machines is a breeze!
