This case concerns a decision to become an entrepreneur by entering the vending machine business. A high school teacher wants to supplement his income, and a part‐time business seems an attractive possibility. The case points up issues involved in such a decision and raises the matter of information required to make such a choice. The underlying issue is the problem of what needs to be known to enter a business, what factors should be considered, and the importance of approaching the matter systematically.
