HOW TO MAKE MONEY WITH A MILK ATM BUSINESS
Milk is an essential consumer commodity that is consumed every day in most households. This means that there is a ready market Milk Atm business. However this does not mean you are guaranteed to succeed in the business if you don’t plan and run the business well. In this post we will be sharing guidelines on how to start a successful milk ATM business.
Identify the opportunity
The first step before you start any business is identifying the opportunity. You need to make sure that there is market for the milk or any other product for that matter. Do not just jump into the business for the sake of it. Establish if there is demand and sufficient clients for the milk.
One problem we have seen with Kenyans is venturing into an overcrowded market and people end up driving each other out of business. Therefore research if there are other milk ATMs operating in the same location you want to install yours. However it could be that there are others but they are not able to meet the demands of the market and by venturing you are guaranteed of clients.
On the other hand it could be that your are more strategically located or you own an established business with loyal clients that would shift to buying from you. This way you are the one who eats into the client share of other businesses. Whatever the case just make sure that you are guaranteed of clients before venturing into the business.
Establish a milk source
In any business, suppliers are very important partners. They can make or destroy a business. You need reliable suppliers/source of your milk. The supplier(s) must be able to supply you with good quality milk handled in a high hygiene environment.
The supplier(s) must also be able to supply you consistently and on a timely manner. Failure to do so can have negative implications on your business because your customers might if you aren’t reliable. If also your milk goes bad easily and breaks when making tea or is adulterated with water so that it makes low quality tea you also risk losing customers. You must therefore ensure these aspects are put in check.
Get the necessary licenses
Getting the necessary licenses is another process that is very essential. Here you will need:
- A license from the Kenya Dairy board
- Single business permit if you don’t have an established business
- Food handling certificate- this saves you from harassment by the county council officers.
Last time we checked the above are the 3 requirements unless things have changed. However we advise you to inquire what is needed so that you can be well set. Better safe than sorry. The fines can be punitive for lack of adherence.
Modify your business premises
The fourth step involves getting your business premises ready. Ensure that your premises is modified well to suit installation of the milk ATM at a strategic location. It should be possible for clients to come in and hand over their bottles and see the display unit that shows you have pressed the right figure.
No matter how honest you are clients will not trust that you have dispensed the right amount of milk commensurate with the amount of money they paid if the unit is not visible to them. Therefore make sure that the milk ATM display unit is well visible to the clients.
Also you need to make sure that the milk storage tank compartment is easily accessible. The doors need to open in a free space. This will help you receive and pour milk in the ATM without challenges.
