If you're a college student, you could fill it full of beer and have the coolest beer fridge EVAR.

well, therein lies the problem. mom and dad have a bar, and altough it would be very easy for me to stock the vendo 570 with 570 cans of bud, bud light, pabst blue ribbon, it would be:

grounds for arrest
more than likely against several federal laws
not particularly viable since me and dad are not drinkers

Would you need some sort of license to stock it up and put it in a public place?

I wonder how much money one vending machine can make....

Stock it up and make some money. Your Dad just gave you a little venture capital there. :D

You could say it's the "gift that keeps on giving."

Lets see...that holds 570 cans of pop(that's a lot of pop!)

You can buy the pop bulk for $.25 a can, and resell it for $.55 a can, making a $.30 profit per can. Assuming you sold all 570 cans, that's $171 a fill up. Of course you probably have to pay some sort of royalties to whoever's premise you have the machine sitting on.

only $.55/can?

all vending machines I've seen were at least $1 per can....I guess that would make the initial price per can more expensive, though...

That's a great idea... especially if you are have friends or roomates who always eat/drink your stuff in the fridge. It's the perfect college apartment appliance.
