THE VENDING MACHINE BUSINESS, A GREAT OPPORTUNITY
There is no need for any warehouse or fancy office space. No advertising necessary or complicated computer software programs. There are incredible tax breaks and tax deductions including most of the company expenses. Check with your CPA to see how you may benefit from the tax laws and other benefits based on your situation and tax bracket.
Having your own vending business means that you set your own hours and schedules and are your own boss. As long as you keep your machines full, clean and working you are in business. Great service is KEY in this business and of utmost importance; great service is what will set you apart from most of your competitors. With great service comes great referrals and that’s the name of the game in any business.
If you are not afraid of knocking on doors and soliciting new business then you are one of the lucky ones who will not have to depend on a locating service to do that for you. You can usually start with friends and family and business associates. Check out where they work and ask about their vending service. If they are not happy suggest that they give you the contact's name and you can offer to submit a no-obligation proposal of what you are able to offer. Before you know it you are landing some great accounts. If on the other hand you are not the type to go knocking on doors, you can always hire a locating company to make the calls to set appointments and get your foot in the door, but at some point you will need to go in and make the sales pitch. There is no replacement for looking at someone eyeball to eyeball and building that very important thing called Rapport. It is great rapport and excellent service that will help you keep your account indefinitely. Keeping accounts is a key to your success.
A Note Regarding Locating Companies.
Beware of those companies who try to do it all for you. Soliciting the new locations, selling you the vending equipment and trying to make it all so easy. You never know what they say to get you in the door and you will have to live with whatever promises and expectations they left with the decision maker. These companies selling you the equipment and the companies they hire to get the accounts are not the ones who will have to live with those customers. Once they sell you the equipment they don’t care much what happens from there. If you can simply have a locating company make the tough phone calls and set appointments, they will get your foot in the door so you may do the rest.

The true fact of the matter is that the vending business is a people business; if you are not a people person, then this may not be the most suitable business for you to embark on unless you have a partner who may be able to handle this part of the business and while the other partner handles things such as operations. In many cases it just takes a good team of two who can cover all the bases.
