The following message provides general information you are considering becoming involved with vending machines.
The vending business encompasses an extremely wide range of items ranging from the familiar soft drink machine to skate sharpening, videos, candy sales, French fries, firewood, etc. The machines are expensive to buy and to service and there are literally hundreds of firms and agents in the business. Most of the equipment is manufactured offshore or in the United States. Profitability is primarily dependent on location assuming a fair cost for equipment. Prospective investors should consider resource, cost, pay (be conservative), service costs, service labour, product/demand, competition, and location to name a few.
