Starting a candy machine business for $50 investment can be done. The profits will allow you to expand.
When starting a candy machine business for $50, you have to realize that buying new candy machines is a rip off. The way to buy the machines is through an ad in your local newspaper or craigslist.
Offer up to $50 in your ad but do not pay more than $35 per machine. You will find many unplaced used candy machines at this price. Stick with at least two candy heads per machine so you can sell multiple candy variety. Next get a club membership at Costco or Sam Club as you will need this to buy your candy really cheap. The catch is you will have to buy a box of your candy at a time.
After getting your first candy machine and finding a location to put your candy machine in(just go from local store to store and ask if their interested in having a candy machine in the front of their store, you will find a store that says yes). All you need to do is fill the machine and collect the money a few weeks later. Take the profits and buy another candy machine and increase your business.
