How to Adjust a Candy Dispensing Wheel

Whether you are a seasoned bulk candy vending veteran or just starting out, the setting of your candy wheel dispenser is critical to striking a balance between providing value to your customers while also running a profitable business. Adjusting the candy wheel on your machine to the highest setting might provide maximum product for your customers, but you also will be cutting into your bottom line. If you adjust the setting too small, your customers will not get a good value for their money.

So, how do you know what setting to choose? Since candy comes in different shapes and sizes and candy machines can vary slightly by manufacturer, the only way to figure out what will work best for you and your business goals is to test your machine. Before filling your machine, choose the candy wheel setting you'd like to test and put a very small quantity of the candy you'd like to vend in the machine. Run a quarter through the machine. Based on how little or how much comes out and your business goals, you may want to adjust your candy wheel setting to be larger or smaller and test it again until you find what setting works.

Many vending operators want to know how many pieces of candy are in a pound so they can figure out profit by the pound. To help with this we offer a general guide to candy piece count on our Candy Category Page
