Topic: Locating Vending Machines

( Excuse me sir, have you seen my vending machine? )

People often ask about me about locating vending machines.
Most don't like my answer.

My wife and I started our business the wrong way. We concentrated on the machines not the business or the knowledge we might need. We overpaid for the machines and contracted to get some locations. When the "contracted" locations turned out to be duds we had to learn to locate, or hire a locating company. We asked around to find a good locating service. We couldn't find ANY established vending operator who would recommend a locator. This was our clue. We wouldn't operate a fishing company without learning to fish. So we learned how to locate. It wasn't really all that tough, you just talk to people. You do get better at it over time.

The hardest part is just deciding to do it. Some days are great, some days you get a lot of no's. But, if you want to become a successful vending operator I suggest you decide to learn the art of locating vending machines.
