Running a vending business in California is currently very expensive. For a vending company to offer cheap prices they might have to cut corners by not paying liability insurance or placing old equipment just to break even. Cutting corners can lead to frustrating problems for you down the road.
Make sure you do your homework before choosing a vending company. Just because you negotiate a low price doesn’t mean you have a great deal.
