Owning a vending machine (or three) is an interesting idea for people looking for something different, interesting, and profitable.
Here are the Top 10 reasons to put your hard-earned money into a vending machine business.1 Uncorrelated Returns to the Equity Markets Many investments in stocks, ETFs or index funds tend to move up and down with the markets. Sometimes even bond funds fall in sympathy with Australian equities which leaves an investment portfolio devastated. Vending machines sell food-related items that entice people to spend on them. Even when the markets are down, the income keeps flowing in. 2 Physical Asset, Not a Paper Asset For anyone who’s found previous stock market declines scary, owning a physical asset that throws off real cash has a sleep-at-night factor that owning paper stocks doesn’t. Most investments are just digits lit up on a screen now, but a vending machine is a physical asset you can see, touch and enjoy owning. 3 Low Initial Investment Some investments require AUD $10,000 or AUD $100,000 to jump in. With vending machine investments, the initial outlay is considerably lower. There are fewer barriers to entry to investors keen to get started too.
When you’re looking for a physical asset that throws off regular profits to live on or you want to save up and reinvest into another vending machine, it’s difficult to discount investing in a vending machine. While it’s a little unconventional, this helps to prevent the market getting oversaturated with machines at each location which keeps your profits up for the year.
