Vending Machine QuestionsWhat is the most common question I get? “How do I get into the vending business?”

Like all things in life vending is simple, but not easy. The concepts are very straight forward but the implementation takes some time and guts. The first step is to decide what kind of vending you want to get into. This requires you to analyze: your start-up budget, your time, and your goals (both personal and financial). If you want to have a $600K/year business your start-up will be different from someone looking to make and extra couple bucks to pay off debt (or begin investing). You also need to decide if vending is going to provide cash flow for you to invest or is it an investment in and of itself.

With bulk candy/gumball machines I never use a contract. The location would NEVER sign one anyway. Find a local store that you visit often and talk with the owner/manager. Offer the machine and a 25% commission. You can also offer to give that money to their favorite charity (most of my locations choose this option).
