    Not been here for many years. I am now retired and although blessed with an adequate income I am bored. So thinking about a part time franchise.

    Years ago I had 2 franchise. Franchise one a waste of money run by a dodgy individual. Franchise 2 my wife ran. It at least made a profit until the market change. My background is business to business selling but to be honest I would like something a little less demanding.

    My goals are to get out a bit and I am toying with a vending machine round. Investment I have seen is about the 4 thousand mark. The key is that I do not need to make a great deal of money. After expenses 100 to 150 pound a week is fine by me.

    Any comments, experiences or other suggestions would be very gratefully recieved.

    Take a look at or and see if there is availability in your area.

    I know a guy who started this after he retired and is doing really well, as well as raising money for charity.
