    If you own a generic machine that is not branded in any way, what is the general concensus out there about putting Coke & Pepsi in the same machine?

    The reason I ask is because convenience stores do it all the time with their refrigeration units. To make it easier for customers to find their drinks, they may have Pepsi on one side and Coke on the other, but somewhere in between their products blend together. Curious to see what you all think.

    IMO...1000% YES...put in Coke,Pepsi and Dr Pepper. Assuming a 8 slot machine.

    Coke
    Pepsi
    Dr Pepper
    Diet Coke
    Diet Pepsi
    Mountain Dew
    7up
    Aquafina Water

    Note this line up is what I think would sell best for a local Chicago machine. Your area will probably have a different line up.

    The local 7-11 around here organizes the coolers according to type of soda. All the colas are in a section, then the lemon-limes, then the citrus, energy drinks, etc. I didn't think you could do that, but then again, I guess if it's your store, you can do what you want.

    If you own a vending machine even if it is branded there is no reason you cannot put coke and pepsi in the same machine. I did it all the time when I was in vending.

    Sprite instead of 7Up, and Coke Zero instead of Diet Pepsi.
