Vending machines are a beloved, lucrative passive income stream for so many entrepreneurs. Today’s guest knows this better than anyone. In fact, he’s transformed his vending machine business into a wildly successful passive income franchise—and helped fund schools around the country in the process.

Matt Miller, founder of, started his passive income journey with a single gumball machine. But he didn’t stop there. Matt transformed his business into a franchise designed to help schools raise the funds they so desperately need, installing spirit merchandise vending machines that replaced the need for kid-powered door-to-door fundraising. Soon, entrepreneurs of all ages—even whole families—were approaching Matt about starting a franchise of their own.

If you’re curious about vending businesses as a source of income, tune in to hear Matt’s story. He’ll share his expert tips on getting started as a franchise owner, partnering with schools, and how parents and kids can learn entrepreneurial skills as a family. Matt’s vision is a whole new way to think about passive income—I know you’ll want to hear it!
