Many people look at vending as the old stand-by franchise opportunity. I can tell you, it's anything but! Sure, you know there are a lot of vending service trucks out there restocking millions of machines, but did you know that vending is a $30,000,000,000.00 per year industry? That's thirty BILLION. That's a lot of snacks and soda! And guess who collects all of those coins and bills? Yes - the franchise owners.

Of course, there would be no vending if not for distributorships. These are the folks that get the product from the manufacturers to the vendors - or to other merchants. And there are some very profitable franchising opportunities here as well as in vending.

As for vending, it's not just about snacks and soda. Although that accounts for the majority of the seven million vending machines in the US, there are plenty of other options. A more recent a trend has been in healthy snacking and nutritious meal vending. And while the modern vending machine got its start in Victorian England, dispensing post cards, the first in recorded history dates back to 215 BC. Seriously!

The mathematician Hero, who lived in Alexandria, described a vending machine in Egypt that dispensed holy water. Point here being; vending machines - in one form or another - have been around a very long time and are only getting more popular and more technologically advanced with time.

So just how popular? Well, according to NAMA (National Automatic Merchandising Association) "100 million Americans will use one of 7 million vending machines each day." Consider that market potential for a moment. Now consider that potential profit. Owning your own vending franchise can get you a nice slice of that pie - in the form of an FDA approved individually wrapped dispensable snack.
