However, driven by Jack Ma's "new retail", they are rising rapidly, breaking into people's lives like a dark horse.

Therefore, compared with offline stores, vending machines that save labor costs and occupy a small area have less investment risk and have a high degree of replicable profitability.
Take the Micron smart vending machine as an example. Unlike traditional retail, which requires high store rents, decoration costs and labor costs, after deducting machines, raw materials, less rent and maintenance costs, it is calculated according to a conservative estimate of 200 pieces per day. The monthly net profit of a single piece of equipment is more than 20,000 yuan, and franchisees can generally pay back the cost in 2-3 months.
