Many bars, pubs and clubs have experienced an unfortunate shift in dynamic over the last few years since the smoking ban was introduced, as crowds of people hang around on the pavement outside for a smoke instead of helping maintain the atmosphere inside. Which, if you own such an establishment, has several major drawbacks.

They buy fewer drinks, create a mess with their discarded butts, cause congestion at the entrance and often block the pavement for people passing by, creating bad will towards the venue,

Because e-cigarettes are not covered by the smoking ban it is entirely down to the owner of the bar to decide if they will allow vaping or not.  With an estimated 2 million vapers in the UK now it isn’t surprising that more and more venue owners are embracing e-cigs and are now welcoming vapers in to their bars.  Not to mention the doormen who would like to reduce the number of people hovering around the entrance constantly going back and forth to satisfy their nicotine cravings

E-Cigarette Vending Machines Have Arrived

So how, we hear you ask, does a pub or club owner get on this band wagon, feel the benefits from decreasing the amount of smokers hanging about outside, and at the same time add a new revenue source?  They could get themselves a Vapourlites Disposable E-Cig Vending Machine from Reddivend!

Reddivend’s vending machines dispense the Vapourlites Micro e-cigarette to provide your clientele with a cost effective & easily accessible source of nicotine.  The VL Micro has a realistic feel to it, and at just 71mm it is also a very similar size to a tobacco cigarette.  It is because of these qualities that even smokers who don’t vape regularly will use the device when they either cannot leave the venue, or when doing so is pain in the backside.  For others the fact that they don’t have to abandon their friends to go for a smoke, or the simple pleasure of satisfying their nicotine cravings inside is enough of a draw for them to put a few pound coins in to the slot.

E-Cig Vending Machines Increase Revenue

The potential for increased revenue from Vapourlites Vending Machines is also significant as these customers remain closer to the bar and spend less time between purchases. There is also the commission your business will receive from the sales of Vapourlites products like the traditional tobacco-flavoured Micro e-cigarette along with the alternative Menthol e-cigarette variety. There are multiple options which include larger Bar Vending Machines and wall-mounted Washroom Vending Machines which allow you to choose the optimum positioning for your own premises. Reddivend will also install the machines for you as well as operating a monthly refill service to coincide with the commission payments.

It is estimated that by 2017 there will be more vapers in the UK than there are smokers, so don’t miss out on this time to build a reputation as a vaping friendly pub or club – an accolade which could prove to be very profitable in the next couple of years.

This e-cigarette vending machine service is currently available for pubs and clubs across Worcestershire, Herefordshire, the Black Country and the West Midlands, and we think it’s a fantastic idea to help your customers enjoy even more of their evenings out at your establishment.
