vending business can be a great way to make extra money in an all
cash business. Many people make beginner mistakes and loose money in
the business. One common mistake that many people make is buying
brand new machines. New machines are great for very large,
established vending companies that have huge locations. For the
average small vendors new machines don’t make any sense based on what
they cost. What many of our successful small vendors do is to buy
quality refurbished machines at a fraction of the cost of new. There
is much more profit in vending 12 oz cans than vending 20 oz bottles.
small vendors start with can drink machines. These units produce the
highest return on investment. Locations with over 40 to 50 full time
employees could warrant a refurbished snack machine as well as a can
on the amount of employees in the location you could consider a multi
price can/bottle machine. These machines are higher priced but can
vend the highly profitable energy drinks as well as cans.

Over the years many people have gone into the vending business and had
great success. Many have made it into a family run business and have
done it part time or full time and have been able to quit full time
jobs in many cases. The vending business is unique in that it allows
you to start out with a small investment and let you grow at the pace
you can afford. Every time you add another machine to your vending
route it is like adding another store location to your business.
