  14. When will my vending machine be filled?
    Coca-Cola's goal is to keep the vending machine in stock. The frequency of when a machine gets filled varies greatly based on the size of the vender and the consumer demand. Our business systems provide information to determine when inventory is low, and a driver is then sent to fill your machine. 
  15. Will my vending machine have a bill validator?
    Coca-Cola vending machines come standard with a dollar bill validator and coin changer. Working with your local Coca-Cola representative, opportunities do exist to accept $5 or $10 bills as well as credit cards.

    All our venders are capable of having a credit card reader installed.  Working with your local Coca-Cola representative, we will outfit your machine with the payment systems to meet your customers' needs.
  17. How much energy does a vending machine consume?
    Our machines meet the highest standards for energy efficiency. Most of our machines are Energy Star certified. On average, they consume less than 7–8 kWh per day. The use of timers can reduce electrical expense. And when appropriate, energy management devices can be installed to further reduce electrical expense. Costs per kWh vary across the US. Contact your local utility company to determine your kWh cost. At $.070 per kWh, the cost per day would be approximately $0.56 per day.
