Okay, I'll go for it.

Part time for now

Full business title: Performa Vending, Amusement, and Entertainment Group Incorporated. Performa Vending for practical reasons.

My vending company is (presently) 1 year old.

I operate a motley assortment of secondhand machines, mostly candy triples, now numbering an operational 20 with more to be deployed soon from storage. In total I think I've got about 30 machines.

I got started with one Ultravend Vend3 triple, and when I find the picture of it's first day in operation, I'll upload it here. It's still in service today.

My big tip: never give up. If you want something, you will have to work for it, and if you can climb over the obstacles, nothing can stop you.

I'd post pics, but my photo limit is quickly approaching. I'll throw something in the gallery soon.

Hopefully that sates a little curiosity TKK!

I have 10 vendesign machines on location, 7 vendstar 3000s on location, 1 vendstar 3000 as a backup, and 3 Northwesterns waiting to be placed.

I got started in this business as a way to supplement my full-time job. Push came to shove when my oldest daughter started dance, then my middle daughter decided to give it a go. And I know it's only a matter of time before the youngest wants dance lessons also. So, my goal is to grow big enough to pay for dance lessons, put a little aside for vacation, and continue to grow the business. I'd like to get to 60 bulk machines, but that's probably years from now.

My tip: well I just started and have enjoyed the advice from this forum so learn from your friends on vendiscuss. Their experience is invaluable. Oh and don't buy new.

I'm working on a picture.

7 Months vending

It something I always wanted to try, the girlfriend had a crappy job on 3rd shift so I figured we could build it up and let her take over. She has no interest in it whatsoever and just moved to days a few weeks ago but I am loving it so not stopping but it's all good because my son wants to help me and wants to start buying his own machines :)

Start small, read the forum daily including back threads, make friends and network here, stay positive and persistent, read the forum, change you business plan as you gain knowledge and grow and stay true to it, and did I mention read the forum?!?


Oh and in case you can't tell from the girl in the bikini, the water & boats or all that sun, I live in paradise, a hot sticky and humid paradise but pretty great all the same!
