THOUSANDS Of Dollars ...

My name is Robert Farnham.
15 years ago, my wife Patti and I found ourselves with a
loan and 5 machines that brought in a total of $43 gross income the first week.
We felt ripped off and angry, but we didn't quit.
Over the next few years we built our vending company to almost a million dollars.
We learned by making a lot of mistakes. Trial and error.
Those early mistakes and our lack of knowledge almost wiped us
out a couple of times. We survived, learned and we thrived. We became
successful. A few years ago we began selling
off our business and enjoying the rewards of our efforts.
Last year my nephew asked if he could interview me for a high school
project on entrepreneurship. Because of our geographical separation, I responded to
his questions via email. As I look at my finished responses, I realized I had compiled the information
that we couldn't find when we started. That information would have
saved us TONS of time and money.
I decided to expand that document and publish it on the internet.
That's why this site is called "My Vending Uncle"
Dear Rob .... my new favourite adopted uncle
..had the bank financing arranged and everything. That night I found your site and purchased your materials. Thank you, thank you, thank you... In less than 3 months I got a very part time business that does a net profit of $100 a week.... takes about 3 hours a week ...
...and thanks to your book, I don't have a bank loan to pay off.
In most cases, it's simply lack of KNOWLEDGE and SKILLS.
In the majority of cases, people get started in the vending business by purchasing a "business opportunity". Unfortunately, that's what we did! It's the KNOWLEDGE and SKILLS that people apply to their business that make it succeed or fail. Most "business opportunity" sellers
don't worry about educating or expanding your knowledge and business skills.
They are trying to sell you vending machines!
I believe that your choice of machines is the LEAST important part of running a
vending business. Your knowledge and skills are what will make you thrive.
If you've discovered the vending business by attending a business opportunity show,
you need more knowledge.
If you're thinking about buying some vending machines after answering an ad with
a 1-800 or 1-888 phone number,
you need more knowledge.
If you're thinking about buying some
machines from an internet site that says something about 100% financing,
you need some
Why isn't this information easier to find?
Unfortunately, the people who are selling "business opportunities" make a lot more
money selling "get rich schemes" then they do showing a balanced business plan on
the vending industry.
Vending is not a "get rich quick" business.
It's a real business, just like any real business, it takes some time and some work to get rewards.
When we were involved daily in the vending industry, people would approach me, as
I restocked machines, and ask me if the vending machine business was a good business.
They usually had a cousin, friend or neighbor that was thinking of getting into the business
part-time. I never had an hour or 2 to sit down and tell them all the details. I also
didn't want them becoming my competition.
Now that I'm basically out of the business, I can write down all the insider information
someone should know before they make a business decision. (Thanks to my nephew, it
was half done!)
I did some internet surfing to find out what other info was out there. There are
very few really good sites on vending. Most of them seemed to be of the "Vend your way to millions" variety, or sites that sell new and used machines.
I did find a couple of sites that sold "Vending Start-up" packages or books.
Here's what I
The first one was written and published by a machine distributor
Question: If you got a manual from "Hoover Vacuum Cleaners" about keeping your house clean, what do you think THEY would recommend?
The second one was written by a lady who actually operated a route!
Question: Why did she leave the info about "being a childrens amusement route operator" to the fine print at the bottom of the last page?
The third one was a fluff filled photocopied report and audio cd's, sent through the mail, on the basics of how to locate vending machines!
It was written by a husband and wife team that owned a handful of Hot Nut Machines in a couple of local bars.
The fourth one was Slick Complete Vending Business Package that seemed to have a lot of information.
After a little research I found this gentleman publishs 100+ "how to books". Start a Lawn Maintenance Biz, Property management biz, Screen printer, Catering company, Local Email service, Pet sitting, etc., etc., etc.,
This lack of truthful vending information causes some people real pain.
It is little wonder that we used to get 1 or 2 calls a month from people wanting to
sell their vending businesses at a loss, just to stop the bleeding. If people had
better access to deeper information, there would be a lot less new vending busines operators losing their
money, and their dreams.
"Due diligence" is the name for checking out all aspects of a business before you buy into
it. Large corporations will spend millions and months on due diligence, before they
acquire or expand into a new territory. You need to do the same thing. It is really
hard to do proper due diligence, on the vending industry, in your local area.
The vending business is VERY competitive. Your accounts are your bread and butter.
you try and gain some wisdom from a local successful vending operator you will
be stonewalled. He doesn't want to help you become his competition. Your best bet would be to drive
a couple hundred miles and set up a lunch with a successful vendor in another state.
You might be disappointed though. The nature of the business makes most vending machine
operators play their cards close to their chest.
In case you are getting the wrong idea, I really enjoyed the vending business. It allowed Patti and I the chance to build our own business, make as much money as we wanted, without asking for a raise. Take time off to go on field trips or outings with our daughter without asking the boss for permission. There is a great sense of security in knowing someone is purchasing a soda, and you are making a profit while you're sleeping. Vending can be a very profitable business. I just wish I'd known then, what I know now. And fortunately for you, You Now Have That Option!
I purchased your information this past Sunday and can't thank you for saving me Thousands of dollars in a misguided effort to start a vending business. I recognized a locating service here locally that wanted to sell me a route with 60 gum ball machines. Some of these units had three heads on a stand and he charged a finders fee for each unit. Also, two different individuals wanting to sell their routes at close to what they paid for them and not making much money. I'm grateful I got your information.
Your best information was to buy the income of a route and (&^%$^&%$^%$). Again thanks as I now understand how to start this business without feeling ripped off!
With the knowledge you could gain from this information, you can start a Profitable and Expandable vending business with Little or No Money!
If I had a friend wanting to get into vending, I would suggest they start with little or no money, see if they enjoy the business, and then build it as big as they desire.

(eg. How to put the key in the lock, how to clean the glass on the front of a machine!)
As soon as you finish downloading your information, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and sit back and read this ebook.
This information is a collection of my personal opinions from years of actually
vending operation. I won't make any guarantees that you'll
make a million dollars after you read it. I won't try to talk you into the
vending machine business, and I won't try to talk you out of it. I will simply
give you a broader knowledge base than 99% of the people looking into a vending
opportunities. If you decide to pursue vending, you will be MILES ahead of the pack.
I have decided to charge $20 for this document, (I hate 19.99).
When you purchase this document, you can have access
to the download in seconds. In a few hours you will have obtained
more inside knowledge of the vending business, and the opportunities available,
than most of people who are currently out filling machines. Most of them
are just trying to keep their head above water.
Why are you charging me $20?
My first rule of business. It has to make money. Believe me, this is a rule you need to adopt!
Don't do anything that isn't
The whole dot.com revolution ignored this simple
principal. They lost billions. If something is "too good to be true", it's usually NOT! most likely
there's a hidden agenda.
I would have paid a lot more for this information when I
started. $20 seems fair. If your uncle ran a vending business, and you took him out
for lunch to get his inside perspective, what would that lunch cost you?
This is exactly the information I gave my nephew. I have expanded it so that
he could have a business model, or blueprint to follow if he ever decides to go into
the vending industry. I wouldn't let a friend, or relative start a vending
operation without this knowledge. At one point we had over $80,000 worth of equipment on our locations, making us money, that we didn't pay a dime for! What's that information worth?
What's my agenda?
Whether you decide to pursue a vending business or not, I hope that this document stops
the endless parade of people who are losing thousands of dollars to a few unethical sharks. Vending is a GREAT business. It has been good to us. I would like everybody to have an equal shot at success. You deserve a fair start. It's simply
a matter of getting more knowledge. The sharks give the rest of the business a bad name. Hopefully, this information can do a small part in correcting that perception.
You can have this information in your hands in seconds.

Small Change, "Insider Vending Secrets Exposed"

Okay, what about a guarantee?
I have really struggled with this. If you
took your uncle out for dinner to get his opinion and knowledge, and you
didn't get the answers you we're hoping for, would you ask the restaurant
for your money back? No! Okay, that being said, I understand that you don't know me.
So here's the deal. If you can honestly say that you knew everything in this document and you gained no further insight or knowledge, I will give you a
One more thing,
Lately, on the internet, there have been some unethical individuals who buy
ebooks, copy them, get a refund, and then sell them as their own on other
sites. If this happens to me, I will find you, sue you and then sic my
dog on you. (Now doesn't that sound like YOUR UNCLE!). This is my proprietary
information. It is not for resale, or distribution by anyone but me. I am not granting you "resell" rights or any of that junk!
If you ask for your money back, I will refund it. Only you know if you're
being ethical or not.

Therefore, I will be raising the prices shortly. "Buy Now" and beat the price increase!
With the knowledge contained in this document you could start a profitable
vending operation with a lot less money than you ever imagined. The decision
is now yours. Please make an informed one.

My Vending Uncle (and Aunt Patti)
..at our local business franchise show. I was thinking of buying into vending and my neighbor was thinking of purchasing a home gift basket franchise. My husband bought your info product. ...Debbie and I agreed it made more sense than anything else we'd found. ......and it's going GREAT. Thanks, I've got my own business, a great partner, my own schedule and profit, not debt. Snacks on me! Thanks ever so much!
You've saved me at least 5k and I'm not even in business yet!
I absolutely would have made buying one, maybe two, state-of-the-art
machines my first priority. That's how I found you, not while looking for
vending machine advice, but while looking for the machines
themselves. Two or three days ago, I downloaded your book. By now, that
money would have been spent, if I'd missed your page, and I'd have a
shiny new machine on a truck from somewhere. Without a location (I
thought I should have the equipment first) and without much hope of
seeing the investment money returned in less than several years, if ever.
The knowledge you share so
generously is the kind only a true insider can impart. Your two ideas for
how you would start today were just great.
Thank you. Your honesty and integrity are refreshing. I hope the book is
doing well for you and your nephew. (A problem: People like me don't dare
share your contact info, for the reasons the book itself outlines. I know
a guy three hours away, though, that I might send to your
website. Safely out of my sales zone. :) )

Today's Vending Business Tip
Don't limit your snack machines products to just snacks!
We did well with putting "other" products in based on taking a broader look at the location. For example, toothbrushes (hotel), laundry soap (trucking company), baseball cards (apartment complex), and other personal toiletries. Be creative!
