Wins & Losses
Turns out running a vending machine business can be hard — these are our biggest challenges and victories from last week.
Remember the continual “our machine is out of commission due to an electrical outage in a faculty room” story we’ve been telling you? Well, we heard from the school’s maintenance team this week that the electricity has been fixed and the machine will be up and running ASAP! This is great news, but is kind of too late for us as the school semester is winding to a close.
Students have officially started leaving campus and we’ve seen a significant drop in revenue as a result. This new machine can’t come soon enough!
