My 1st Anniversary!

Recommended Posts

Dear Members,

I just wanted to let everyone know that as of August, I will be in the vending business for one year. Wow! What a year it has been. When I started, I walked many miles looking for accounts to place vending machines. I made all sorts of lists of the accounts that I would like to be in and many of those accounts said "NO" thank you. I'm kidding, they didn't say thank you. When I got my first YES I was so excited, I called my wife and told her how great it was to place my first machine. I started out with 50 triple-head machines and in 4 months I had found homes for every one of them. Some where not the best places but they where out of my garage. I was in the vending business!

Today, I have about 90 accounts with over 400 heads that I service every month. I have all the Blockbuster Video locations in San Diego, CA. along with many other great accounts. I have expanded to skill machines, like cranes & Gravity Hill. I have continued to add equipment to most of my existing accounts with much success. I have gone from collecting $500 a month to collecting thousands of dollars and it keeps growing. I don't say this to brag but to let the beginners know that if you have a plan, and you stick to it, you will make it in this business. It takes a special type of person and you are in the right place. Read a lot of posts, ask a lot of questions, make a lot of friends.

Many of you have been with me since I came on this site at the end of October, 2007.

I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for all of you and of course God.

So with that said. You are all invited to my anniversary party.

I love you guys.

Wow! Congrats Brotha Gary. I did not realize it was only one year for you. I thought you were in the business longer. Very impressive all that you have placed and accomplished. You certainly are a role model for me as I begin to expand.
