Fountain drinks are popular all across the United States, and largely across the developed world. Fountain drink machines are a highly utilized piece of equipment in the fast food, bar and restaurant industries. These machines can contain multiple beverage selections from different soft drink vendors, or they can be purchased with multiple products from the same vendor. Coco-Cola and Pepsi are the world's largest and most familiar fountain drink distributors, and their beverage dispensing machines can be bought or rented for personal or business use from many retailers. Here are just a few ways to find and purchase or rent a fountain drink machine.
