Let me tell you as a person who was in your shoes at that age around 8 or 9 years ago listen to AZ and start with bulk vending! Itll get your feet planted in the business on what you want to do and where you might want to go. Its also a MUCH more inexpensive way to get a feel on how to land locations and find what good locations really are. Stick to good used northwestern and oak machines to start out. DO NOT buy vendstars theyre cheap plastic junk machines. Constantly keep an eye out for possible locations and when youve got the time go ,speak with the location about possibly placing your candy machine there. Speaking to people can be difficult at first but just force yourself to keep going no matter how many no’s you get because theres a yes waiting at some point. Loosen up too when you go to give them your sales pitch and have some fun with it, you can have the best equipment on earth but with a sour attitude you wont get very far. Doing this gives you some “building blocks” if you will on how to grow in other vending avenues. I started this way and i’ll tell you im VERY glad i did.
