Couple of questions from Army vet looking to start a business
I just got out of the Army and have saved up a nice chuck of change and would like to start my own vending business. I worked for a vending company for a number of years before going in the Army so I understand the job and can handle most of the repairs myself but I am lacking information regarding soda pricing and equipment and I think this maybe the best place to ask:
1. I am located in the Seattle/Tacoma metro area of WA state and would like to know how to go about getting the best price on 20oz bottle and 12oz cans of Coke and Pepsi products?. Any suggestions on where/who to go to.
2. Does Coke and Pepsi still offer the free machines to vending companies in exchange for buying X amount of product and if so what are the general qualifications needed to get something like this going.
