Buying a vending machine business may include the route of companies that use the machines and also the machines. You’re responsible for refilling the machines on a regular basis and maintaining them. The price relies on a variety of factors.
Based on 2010 data, vending machine routes and businesses cost about $10,000 to well past $100,000. The age of the machines, the number of machines and the annual revenue reported by the owner all play a factor in the asking price.
The cost of the vending machine business may include only the machines and not the actual route. In this scenario, you’re responsible for finding store owners willing to use your machines in their lobbies.
Always ask for documentation regarding proof of sales from the owner, preferably tax returns from the previous year. This shows you the exact income made from the routes, rather than an inflated price he might give you.
