They are exclusively partnered with Everest, and we are the ONLY ice and water vending machine manufacturer that has this service available.
HOW DOES THE LOCATION FINDING SERVICE WORK?
They will ask you to fill out a simple questionnaire with some of the locations, businesses, areas, and zip codes where you would like them to search. You can tell them how much rent you are willing to pay (typically in the $200-$400 / Month range), and any specific business locations you would like them to contact on your behalf.
They will contact property and business owners in the areas you request and discuss with them what’s involved with placing an Everest Ice and Water Vending machine and the benefits of having one at their business. They will offer the property owner what rent you have indicated that you are willing to pay. If the property/business owner is willing to continue the conversation and is interested in meeting with you, they will send you the property owner’s information and you can call to set a time to visit with them in person. They can typically introduce you to several prospective locations.
