133: How One Man Went From Broke to Vending Machine King — Matt Miller

Matt Miller graduated from the United States Air Force Academy in 1989 and was an Air Force pilot for 9 years. Post-military, Matt worked in both the medical and advertising fields as a top performer. His long-term desire was to start a business to build a lifestyle based on freedom and choice.

A conversation with a good friend led him on a 10-year business quest that has brought Matt’s franchising company to the cutting edge of both the vending and school fundraising industries. Starting with an investment of $100 he has built School Spirit Vending (http://ssvbusiness.com/) into a multi-million dollar vending business.
