Select The Item Of Your Choice

One truth about vending machines is both a pro and con: They can be expensive, but the cost of starting a vending business is substantially less a storefront business. Mechanical vending machines can cost several thousand dollars. Looking at options such as used or refurbished can help cut costs in some instances.
If you have 10 mechanical machines to start, your initial investment for machines and products can be $20,000 to $30,000. Sometimes starting at 1-2 stops that are busy can give you a good sense of what to expect before diving all in and spending thousands.
