Hello - I am really nervous for some reason to talk to business owners to place my first machine. I'm not sure exactly what to say or expect. Anyways - I was thinking of trying to get a hold of a owner of a busy laundry mat. It seems there are always kids and people already have quarters. Are these good locations?
Hi everyone, first post here after spending a lot of time reading your GREAT forums. I have some questions that I think the forum bloggers' wide range of experience and expertise could provide me with some great answers, but first, here's an introduction: My name is Scott G. I have decided I'm going to get into the vending business in a warm environment (Phoenix, possibly Florida though). I am going to either buy a small existing business, or start from scratch. I have some money, and want to make sure that I start off right when entering the business.I plan on doing soda and snack at first, although I will definitely do bulk if I find a good business for sale, or if a good opportunity presents itself. I plan on being doing both soda/snack and bulk very early into my business' life. I have a decent, yet limited amount of cash, and I am trying to decide where my priorities should be when spending my capital. So here are some questions I have, thanks in advance for any and all responses! 1) Unless the business I purchase comes with a vehicle, what vehicle should I buy (any recommendations for make and model?)? I think at first I should buy a van with the entire interior air-conditioned. A van won't have a liftgate, but I think I will pay people to move my machines at first, I may move the machines for easy locations. Also, new or used, I should be able to qualify for financing, and I am leaning on buying a new van, especially for the warranty, visual appeal, and minimal concern of something breaking. 2) Aside from a vehicle and a dolly, would should equipment be focused on buying? 3) What are some important things that I should consider before starting? 4) What are some tips/words of advice that you guys have for a greenhorm like me? \ Thanks so much everyone, hope to hear from you soon!
