How To Start A Vending Machine Business - Locating Tips!

Apr 12, 2008
When looking at finding new locations to place your vending machines here are a few ideas to consider and some important questions to ask yourself when looking for vending locations. Have I used my local business directory to make a list of companies in my area that I wish to target?

Every city has and every community should have one. I believe that most do from what I have seen in my area. It just depends on where you are living. Basically the business directory, what it does it, it gives a lot of information to you.

Alot of useful information. Here in Canada, it is called Scott's Business Directory. I am not sure what the U.S. one is, it might be called Jigsaw or something like that. That is a business directory that you can get information from. How is that important? Well you get the company name, and how many employees work there. That is a big one.

You want to know how many employees, because the more employees that work there, then you know which ones to target so you are not wasting your time. Armed with this information you can then get the some of the main employees contact information.

You have a VP the Human Resource Director, the Office Manager, their names and stuff. Great! You can put together a sales letter, and address is personally to them.

Explain that you run a vending service business and you would like to help them. So using the local business directory is great because you can get a lot of information from there and you can make a list of companies that are in your area that you want to target, do a mass mailing, whatever you want to do. Even just go visit them and drop off information for somebody specific that you want to talk to.

Here is another question to consider. Have I gone to my local building department and asked to look at where and what new companies are up and coming? What happens is, this is for public viewing. You can go to your local building department and see information there about all the new buildings.

If you see a new construction going on in your area and you are kind of wondering, "I wonder what that place is?" Well you go to your local building department. Now here, it is the city hall or the town hall. They have divisions, Transit, Public Works, Managers Office, Mayors Office, and Building Department. That is the kind of building that you want to go to.

You can just go in there and say, "Hey, I noticed a new facility opening up and I am just wondering what that is going to be?" Usually they have a binder with a list of buildings under construction.

In my community they have binders where you can open it up and look and see. It will say the construction company that is doing the job. It will say the company that is going in there. It might even give you contact information in there in some cases. This is a great way to for you to get an idea of what is opening up there.
