By Lanee’ Blunt

Starting a vending machine business is a cash-only recession proof business because people love snacks, candies, and drinks in colorful attractive packs and they are hard to walk past when they want a snack. Have a plan in place when you begin your vending machine business and know your goals and what you need to do to achieve them.

Analyze the type of machine that you want to set up because if you are going to sell food you will be required to have Food Service license.  A sales tax license is required to collect sales taxes.  A vendor and peddler license is required to set up a vending machine for sales on most products in the machine. The requirements may be different, so you must check with your own local licensing department.
