I am new to the vending world.. figured I will start with bulk vending to start learning the ropes... I found what seems to be a good deal on craigslist for a route and types of machines...
I would really appreciate any feedback, tips, questions to ask... honestly anything helps... If you have 5 minutes to talk on the phone to help me out, EVEN BETTER! I would really appreciate it! I will be meeting up with him tonight to talk about the route...
The add pretty much states the following (the post expired or I would actually post it)...
"$2500 for 12 machines already located... 5 extra machines to expand route...
supposedly it grosses $400-$600 a month"
Selling because this was a test route because he is in soda and snack vending but lives in another city... this is a commute for him to service...
The Gross seems a little too good to be true (but then again I am new to this)... and feel it might be too expensive and says he doesn't have records or anything for poof of what they actually gross... he sent me an email with the type of location and type of machines located there...
