My office just has a fridge full of mini (and generally expired) bottles of pop for the clients, although we are free to help ourselves, so I'm no help. My son reports that cans of pop in the vending machines at his school are $1. We live in no-deposit country, so figure that in.

I think 12oz cans (Coke products and Dr. Pepper) are $1.10, 20oz bottles (Pepsi products) are $1.50. No deposit here.
It's been a while since I've bought a soda at work but I think that's close to what it is.

I miss the days of college when the theater would student theater's soda and candy machines were stocked mostly at cost with prices adjusted so that you could ALWAYS get a Snickers bar and a Mt Dew (something that reasonably resembled a meal with enough sugar and caffeine to keep you going for another couple hours) for $1. As I remember, soda was $0.40 and most candy bars were $0.50-$0.60.

.50 for 12 ounce cans here (Pepsi products).

We are not charged here where I work for beverages. Soda, coffee and tea are here for all employees at all times. They buy soda in cans by the case and have them in a closet, they are warm but we have an ice machine if you want it cold. I try not to drink soda during the day, so I generally drink water while I'm here (filtered thru the fridge) and haven't really taken advantage of it throughout the time I've worked here. But I do see people who drink 3+/day.

The office manager generally buys Coke products, and we happen to have a Pepsi vending machine in the basement of our building and I sometimes see people who have gone down there to buy a soda (cans), they cost .75/ea.

20 oz. Pepsi products are $1.50 in the machines, or $1.50 + tax in the convenience store on campus. I work at a public university in Illinois.

90 cents for a can of soda here at my office

No deposit and a 20oz soda is $1.25 from the vending machine working here in Virginia.

80 cents for a can at my office. I have worked here 13 years and I think the price has only increased 5 cents during that time (knock on wood).

My employer has a soda machine filled with different beverages, all of which are free. It has always been that way from what I hear. The snack machine next to it is not free, however items are very cheap. Like 25-40c for most items. Pretty nice 'perk' for working here. Although I try to not drink very much soda/pop, it's hard not to when it's free. We also have coffee and tea, and even hot chocolate for free too! :) I am in MN.

My work place owns the Pepsi machine and they charge pretty much at cost. 75 cents for 20oz bottles of Pepsi products (well and beverages that they distribute - flavored water of some sort and some tea or something). They do not own the candy/snack vending machine and the company that does seems to think we are on the toll road or located near Epcot or something.

No Deposits here in buckeye land, and no free Drinks @ my work either..(grocery / general merchandise store)
No idea what they charge in the break room now-a-days haven't gone back there in years. when i first started there 14 yrs ago, the break room had 12oz cans for 35cents, and a small bag of chips was 65 cents. a buck a break.
I think now, the pop machines in the break room are more expensive than the coolers @ the checkouts, which are(20 oz bottles) $1.69 -coke Prod., $1.59 -Pepsi Prod., $1.39 -7up Prod., and 99cents for our house brand. or there's a coke fountain that just went up from 99cents + tax ($1.05), to $1.29 +tax ($1.37)
(FYI - those Icee machines @ grocery stores & gas stations, significantly overpriced. about 60% of the price is pure profit.)

Cans are $.60 and 20oz are $1.25. Most expensive thing is a Red Bull at $2.50.

Wholesale price for me. And I give it away for free to every one that work with/for me.

That said, we don't do HFCS (so no Coca-Cola or Pepsi products, but I give out Jone's sodas, mostly, since it's local, and TalkingRain, which is owned by a fellow alumni) and I tend to stock healthy snack items.

$1.50 for a 20 oz bottle and hello from another Michigander :)

I go out to the store and pick up whatever types of soda/pop that the others ask me to get, and we charge 50 cents a can. Some weeks it is Coke and Mt. Dew, other weeks 7up and Dr. Pepper.
We also stock a good variety of junk foods that they like, and I tend to throw in a couple of healthier options in case someone wants a decent snack or lunch. Costs on the Junk and healthy foods are roughly the cost per item from buying them at the store, no up-charge since we tend to make about 2x the cost on the sodas.

$1.70 for 20 ounce bottles of Coke products my local small college, up ten cents from the Spring term.

All single cans come to an even dollar after sales tax (7%) and deposit (5 cents).

Coke & Pepsi 20-ounce bottle prices raised 10 cents the first of this month so they are now $1.86 (including tax and deposit). DPSU has stayed the same (so far) at $1.76.

A few oddities in pricing (before tax and deposit) are: Doc 360 for $1.19, Sunkist Strawberry for $1.29, and Sunkist Grape for $1.39. I know our local Pepsi distributor has the Doc 360 on promotional pricing, but I have yet to figure out the reasoning behind the varied Sunkist prices... especially since Orange is priced at the same level as the rest of the DPSU products.

This being said, we get free coffee/cappuccino/hot chocolate/brewed tea/pop-from-the-fountain-dispenser while working as long as it's in our 16-oz. employee mugs.

$1.25 seems pretty standard for a 20 oz bottle in Wisconsin. The price went up from $1.00 about five or six years ago. No deposit.

I don't see can machines very often but the last time I used one it was in Illinois and it was $1.00 for a can, also no deposit. That seems pretty pricey to me. I think $0.75 for a can is more common, which would be proportional to the bottle price per ounce. I remember cans being $0.70-$0.75 at the first university I went to, except for one machine still priced at $0.50 in an out-of-the-way corner of one building, which I discovered accidentally. That machine frequently spit out two cans instead of one. Best machine on campus.

I work retail and have several 20oz bottle fridges for customers. We get employee discounts which are 10% above cost. Comes out to like 93 cents after tax.

And in case we have any touchy people here ready to claim the profit margin on a bottle of soda is too much, please remember the machine they're in costs money, the electricity to keep them cool 24/7 costs money and the space the machine takes up costs money. And it's a small cost item anyway. Anything under 2 bucks is fine with me.
