Do You Run Your Vending Service In House?

Do you know the best positions for siting vending machines in your leisure centres?  Are you selling the right products at the right prices through the right combination of machines? 

Do you benchmark your operational and financial performance to prove it?

Our flexible approach can provide you with:
  • a Half-Day Q&A session targeted on the specific problems you want to resolve
  • a One Day workshop specifically designed to train and motivate up to 25 of your staff in the delivery of a quality Vending Service
  • or a professional Vending Review that will give you a comprehensive Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) Analysis and financial assessment of your current performance as well as profitable Options for the future


Or is Your In House Service Giving You Problems?


Splash Vending Would you rather your leisure staff focused on providing leisure services?  Do your vending machines regularly empty at busy periods because your leisure staff are too busy looking after your customers elsewhere?  If one of your machines breaks down at 5.00pm on a Friday do you have to wait until Monday or Tuesday before the engineer comes out to fix it?  Do you make a real commercial profit out of your machines?


There are specialist vending companies throughout the UK who will provide vending machines, stock them, service them and remove the cash and pay the client an attractive fee for the privilege.  They are specialists whose sole business is vending and who fully understand the needs of leisure businesses that operate 18 hours a day, seven days a week.  They even understand the ‘Jamie Oliver' effect!


How Can We Help?


We will very swiftly assess whether your vending business would be suitable for putting out to tender for operation by Fully Managed Contractors.  We can manage the entire process for you ensuring that you receive the most competitive offers for your size of business.


The substantial benefits that RQA brings to the tendering process on your behalf is based on the knowledge and experience which we have gained in facilitating the competitive tender process for many different leisure clients over several years.


The vending industry is fast moving and substantial changes occur in very short periods of time so purchasing organisations that only enter the market infrequently are at a distinct disadvantage in knowing how to structure the categories and which contractors are making the best offers.
