Matt Miller is a former air force pilot (T-38s and C-5s for the avgeeks like me out there) and former advertising executive who is Founder and CEO of School Spirit Vending. He started a passive ‘on the side’ business to help schools raise money through vending machines and grew it into an empire with 110 machines himself and over 100 franchisees.

Matt started the business with a used gumball machine he bought off eBay. Now he helps franchisees place vending machines in schools that dispense school-branded stickers and mascot stickers. They help raise school spirit and generate income for the school as well. On 25 October 2016 it will be 9 years since matt placed that first machine in his first school. Now Matt’s in 36 states in the US and is expanding into Canada early next year.     Typically School Spirit Vending franchisees have 20-30 machines per franchisee. Matt believes in a culture of not ‘pushing’ people but letting them go at their own pace. Franchisees typically put in less than two days a month to service and stock their machines.   More show notes are available at FranchiseeConnect.com/059
