For the last month I have been researching vending machines, contacting the supplying factories, and the sellers and have been negotiating on making a purchase. I have also done market research and have surveyed to find out about many items that the student body would be interested in purchasing. I also have researched about the maintenance of the vending machines that I have considered purchasing. All of the research and negotiating with both the sellers and the school are complete, however I need start up capitol to purchase the machine as well as the items that will be sold. This will require between 3 and 6 thousand dollars. Every little bit counts, so hopefully I will be able to raise at least a fraction of the necessary funds from dosomething.org.
