Vending Consumers Page

When it comes to vending business opportunities be an informed consumer and business person!

The definition of a consumer in this page is that of an individual who wishes to start a vending business, or, who wishes to purchase products or equipment for an existing vending business. The purpose of this page is to assist in the gathering of information for the above decisions.

A vending consumer could be an individual who is investigating a business opportunity, or one who is looking to expand a business. The FTC oulines the Business Opportunity Rule while places safeguards to make sure you have the information you need to make an informed decision. The rule protects by "First, it requires sellers covered by the Rule to give you a one-page disclosure document outlining important facts about the opportunity. Second, if sellers make any claims about how much money you might make, they have to give you a separate paper with more specifics. Third, the Rule makes clear that certain practices are against the law."

Here are some books which may help. Also there are numerous links towards the bottom of this page.
