Arenas, recreation and amusement centres are places where entertainment and activities take place, such as sporting events, community centres or theatres. Vending machines in these areas can greatly reduce lineups at concession stands when customers are in a hurry to return to the event or activity. They can also be a cheaper alternative to those who don’t wish to purchase an entire meal (if such a provision exists at the centre).
These types of locations can do well with coffee machines as well as snack and beverage machines. When these facilities are large, it may also be more appropriate to test whether having more than one machine servicing a product type is best (i.e. perhaps two beverage machines and two snack machines).
