Hello. I'm Darius Godwin

Owner of King Bear LLC and King Bear Vending. When I started my vending journey I had many questions, made mistakes, and had to overcome challenges. Through experience and a relentless grind, I was able to accomplish much success!

I acquired my first two locations for the price of 1 and was able to scale quickly to additional locations owning multiple machines and vending routes. Overall, I was able to accomplish a return on investment of 185% in just 6 months of vending.

It is my desire to empower you to have the same if not greater success on your journey and understanding how to begin with a strategic plan is the way to go!

I have no doubt that you will find value in this course and leave with a greater understanding of how to strategically utilize vending for passive income!

Thank You for taking this course and the opportunity for me to assist you on your journey of financial success!


Still here? What are you waiting for...

​Learn and start up your very own profitable vending business from the ground up as I walk you through the steps and answer all your questions about starting a profitable vending business
  • Do I purchase a machine first?
    This is one of the biggest mistakes new vendors make when they want to start a vending business. I always recommend that you acquire a location/place of service before you purchase your machine, and this will save you a lot of money and headache. You won’t know if the machine fits the business needs, the desired functionality, or even if it will fit in the door. Get your location first!
  • Do I need a lot of money to invest?
    The vending business is typically a lower cost low barrier of entry investment opportunity. The majority of new vendors start with $1000-3000 and with the right system can make 100% return in less than 6 months with a profitable location and 1-2 machines.
  • What if I don’t have a vending license or permit?
    Most states do not require a vending license or permit. There are less than 10 states that require this. Also, permits are typically easy to apply for and should not stop you from getting started.
  • Does vending require a lot of time?
    As with anything you get out what you put in. Vending has a great ratio when it comes to active involvement and passive income return. With the right locations and system in place you can spend less than 10 hours a week to earn to earn $1000 or more a month.
  • How hard is it to setup a business for vending?
    Creating your LLC is typically 30mins of your time to submit your filings and takes 5-10 business days to receive your articles and your business identification number (EIN). This is critical for receiving revenue earned by card reader transactions.
  • What about maintenance or if my machine breaks?
    All machinery has the potential for issues, but vending machines are generally low maintenance and easy to find parts and repairs for. Many vendors self-maintenance their machines through online video resources, manuals, and step by step instructions. There are also low-cost local vending service groups that can assist to keep you up and running.
  • How can I compete with large vending companies?
    There are more businesses and locations that need services than there are vending providers. You leverage your services through relationship building and providing value. Local businesses often like to support small businesses that provide quality service. Use this approach and you will gain a leg up on your competition.
  • Does vending really make money?
    Absolutely! Not only can you earn passive income through vending to cover bills, pay down debt, or even pad your cash, but vending also allows you the opportunity to build wealth. Learning how to start successfully is the key and growing the business from there is in your control.
