A common question people have when they call and inquire about starting their own bulk vending business is, “Do I need a license to operate a vending business?” The truth is, there are simply too many states and cities to keep track of, but nearly every state, county and city requires some sort of license, or regulates and/or taxes vending machines. Some cities and counties have strict rules and others are more lenient. These rules are for the most part intended to protect the consumer’s health and safety, although others are also there to raise revenues in local government. Do your research in your own state and city and find out what is required of you.
