1-Operators of Honor boxes enjoy the happiness of friendships made on a daily basis. This is one of the things I enjoyed the most about the business.
2-Cost of startup is the reason I went into the Honor box business. Prices have gone up since the day I sold out but even in today’s world you can place a box for approximately $0.00. When you stop to think about this it sheds light on why this is a great business to get into.
3-Dependability of the business. This is a business that relies on impulse buying. Can you think of any other item that draws people’s attention like a bag of chips, a candy bar or a Charms Blow Pop or a Tootsie Roll pop? These items sell every day to people on the go.
4-Being able to travel was one of the reasons I went into the Honor vending business. I enjoy getting out with people and making friends. The Honor box business is a relations business. If people like you they will help keep your Honor box honest.
5-Limited amount of product needed to fill boxes. The Honor box business is unlike most forms of vending in that it only takes between thirty and forty different items to fill a box. This in itself is a great advantage to a startup business. You will not need a huge warehouse filled with many different items tying up huge sums of money in your new venture.
6-High yields is another big advantage of the honor box business. The cost for a Charms Blow Pop is about 8.7 cents can sell for $.50 apiece or three for a dollar as you can see very high profit margins.
7-Product life is another advantage to starting a Honor box business. Most of the items you will be selling will have a nice shelf life to work with. Charms Blow Pop or a Tootsie Roll pop have a year of shelf life.
8-Vehicle expense-I started out running boxes from the back seat of a 1979 Chevy Impala. This car had a 3 speed manual transmission, am radio, and no power steering or air conditioning. Let me get back to the subject and off what brings back fond memories for me. My point is, if you are just starting out, you can start in just about any type of a vehicle. Once you have made a little money of course you will want to move up to a full size van such as a Ford E150 cargo van or any other equivalent make and model.
9-Starting part time-When you are starting out this is a business that is very easy to own and operate in a part time manner, but, don’t go into this business thinking it is only something to do on the side to make a little extra spending money. If that is what you are planning on doing you are only limiting your own future. My wife and I made a very good living off the Honor boxes and you can also. It just takes a little dedication and will power to follow your dream.
10-Freedom of self-employment-This is the illusive dream that many people are never able to achieve. I’m not here to promise you the moon and the sky. What I am here to do is to take the person that has the will power and the drive and to help them achieve great things in their life. My question to you is: “Are you one of those people I’m looking to help, and are you a dreamer with the drive to make great things happen in your life for you and the ones you love?”
