Tin cans are durable and are shaped perfectly for easy loading into a vending machine. The variety is also tremendous. Virtually every type of drink is offered in a can drink format. As a vendor, it’s very economical to stock and offer canned drinks to their customers through drink vending machines.

When investing in vending machines, make sure your drink machines can handle a combination of both canned and bottled drinks!
