Why Start an Ice and Water Vending Machine Business?

Entrepreneurship is having quite a moment. According to the New York Times, American entrepreneurial activity is surging higher than it has in almost 40 years. Data from the Census Bureau reveals that 4.3 million businesses started up last year during the pandemic, and applications for new businesses are expected to be even higher this year.

What’s behind it? In a nutshell, after living through the pandemic, people have just had it. They don’t want to work in meaningless jobs anymore. They’re done with their unfulfilling 9-to-5. They want more out of life. More balance. More free time to pursue their passions. Less time sitting in a cubicle. If that sounds like you, you’re in good company. Upwards of 20 million Americans have quit their jobs since April 2021, and many of those are exploring the possibility of working for themselves.

Wanting to own your own business is one thing. But unless you’re Bill Gates inventing the personal computer in his garage or Jeff Bezos conjuring up world retail domination, coming up with the perfect idea to build a business around is difficult. There are more ways to get it wrong than get it right.


Ice vending is the perfect low-maintenance, low-risk business idea for starting your entrepreneurial empire. It’s a unique business model that allows you to own your own business without all of the hassle associated with owning your own business. No employees to worry about, no payroll to make sure you get right, no stock or inventory to deal with. It’s nearly set it and forget it. You make passive income — an average of $20,000 to $40,000 per year from just one machine — while you’re doing other things.

That’s why this 20-year-old industry is growing rapidly, by approximately 35% each year.

Here are some other benefits of ice vending machine business opportunities:

High-profit margins. Because our machines are so efficient, they make 10 pounds of ice for around $0.07. You can sell that product for $2 to $3 on average. That’s up to 98% gross margin. Over 4,000% markup!

Scalable. Start with one machine. When you see how great it is, add another. And another. Your business can be as small or large as you want it to be.

Very little maintenance. Because of our patented, no-maintenance, one-moving-part dispenser, our plug-and-play components, powder-coated frame and easily changed filters, your new Everest machine will be easy to maintain.

Remote management. 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.

Low reliance on vendors, partners, or distributors. This is especially important now. You’re not dependent on supply coming from other sources. Your ice machine is the “factory.” In other words, your machine makes what it sells.

Benefits and Profits of Ice and Water Vending Machines

Water vending machines align with the growing consumer trend towards sustainability and health-conscious choices. By offering an environmentally friendly alternative to bottled water, these machines cater to eco-aware customers, building goodwill and fostering a positive brand image. This consumer shift towards valuing sustainable practices can drive more business to your water vending operations, as modern customers are often willing to support businesses that contribute to environmental conservation.

Ice vending machines offer the flexibility and scalability that water vending machines offer. They can be placed in a variety of locations such as supermarkets, gyms, schools, or office buildings, wherever there is a high foot traffic and a clear need for hydration. This adaptability allows business owners to strategically expand their operations by identifying and capitalizing on high-demand areas, further increasing profitability. Moreover, with the capability to operate 24/7 without the need for constant supervision, these vending machines can generate income round the clock, enhancing their financial attractiveness.
