The Market

A Popcorn Vending Machine business maybe started with a small investment and expanded as desired. The consumption of popcorn is not subject to seasonality. It is strictly a Cash Business with High Yields. Vending is a huge industry. An automatic vending machine delivering hot fresh popcorn popped right in front of the customer with all the smell and sound of fresh popping corn presents a powerful attraction to the consumer. There is also a trend toward eating healthy, for which popcorn has. No Oil, full of fiber and a Fun Snack at the same time, to fill those moments anytime of the day.

Machine Location

Options for where you place your machine are endless, but if possible you should site it where it can be readily seen and inside under cover away from the weather elements. The music melody and standard lights are an effective use of POS material. For all venues such as the bowling alley for instance, often the aroma of the popcorn being popped is a mouthwatering attraction for customers and
because the popcorn vending machines are ventless
there is no smoke to distract them.
