Vending Machine Business Opportunity - Quick Advice When Getting Started!

Jul 24, 2008
Are you considering starting in the vending machine business and maybe looking at it as an opportunity to make some extra money on a part time basis?

Well you certainly can if you make some smart educated decisions along the way and avoid some of the scam artists out there.

For me what started out as a part time little vending business quickly grew into a full time vending business operation where now I have been able to quit my job as a City Bus Driver and run my vending machine business full time.

I chose to do this business and create something like this because I always wanted to be independent and make money for myself. I didn't ever want to be at the mercy of a company where I they had control of my financial well being and could lay me off work when it suited them.

So I chose to start my own vending business. So slowly one machine at a time I began to find many different locations in my area to place my machines. I first started out by doing a little research and homework to make sure that I could get the right machines for my locations and most importantly deliver on the promises that I was making to the various companies in my area.

My homework really included visiting my local vending machine distributor and finding out which machines where the right ones to buy and for the right price. I also talked to other people in the industry to find out what kind of machines that they were using.

I started out with pop vending machines because I found them to be the cheapest price to get started with and easy to run. I had found a local mover to deliver the machines to my locations and off I was.

Why am I telling you all of this? Many people have asked me over the years about the vending business and how it worked. So I have found myself helping others along the way teaching them how to start their own vending machines businesses in their local community.

The truth is that really anyone can get started in the vending business with very little start up capital and if they have the motivation and the drive to want to run a successful business then it is very possible.

My advice when starting out is to stay away from opportunity shows or seminars that promise the world in vending. All they really want to do is sell you a bank of over priced vending machines.

That's all they want to do really! At the end of the day you may fork out thousands of dollars on machines that will end up sitting in your garage collecting dust. We don't want this to happen!

One piece of advice is that you should do your homework first and start out slowly buying one machine at a time before diving in head first to the vending business.
