Editor’s Insight: What this report indicates is that vending is still a viable business opportunity for motivated entrepreneurs. This person operates close to 300 machines in addition to holding a full-time job.

While the investment required to get into vending has risen sharply in recent years, there will always be a place for one- and two-person operations that serve small locations. What’s changed for these entrepreneurs is the capital needed to expand to serve larger locations. 01-27-12 By  Elliot Maras
