One of these inventions made for convenience was the vending machine that provides snacks, beverages, lottery tickets, and other products to consumers without a cashier. Items sold via these machines vary from country to country.
In some countries, vendors may sell alcoholic beverages such as beer and also cigarettes through vending machines.

Basically, a vending machine business is just like any other business that needs good attitude and management in order to bring in a profit. This doesn't mean the vending machine business is easy money. You have to exert effort to it in order to become successful just like another other business venture.
When starting a vending machine business you have to think about the best items to stock in this machine. Like snacks, drinks or even cigarettes as long as you know how to make it more sellable to the people. Think of something that you really get interested in so that it will be easy for you to sell that item.
Next you need to think of the location, a spot becomes feasible when at least 100 people walk past it every day. You can approach schools, hospitals, office blocks and factories. There's no risk for the venue owner, so they're usually keen.
Always make sure you replenish your vending machine. This is the most labour intensive part. You should visit each machine every 3 days or so to refill it up and keep it clean.
