What we look for in a site to ensure it is successful
Every potential site undergoes a rigorous site survey process undertaken by our BDMs and engineers. Surveys are reviewed by a senior panel to ensure that every site we partner with has high revenue potential.

When we review a site, we consider local demographics and their earning power, local amenities, if the population is stable or transient, and the population’s proximity to the proposed site of the vending unit.
