Simple Business - keep 100% of the profits!

So, what do you think about vending machines? 


They are the ultimate in convenience, giving people what they want, when they want it. Maybe you used one. Maybe you walked past one. Maybe one saved your life because you hadn't eaten all day. Maybe you walked away because you hated the selection.
