The mission of Pop's Vending, LLC is to be the leader in Live Bait Vending. Pop's Vending can achieve this by introducing innovative, quality vending machines that supply "Live Bait" to the market.

COMPANY SUMMARY

Pop's Vending, LLC, is a solely owned and operated vending company that focuses on providing "Live Bait" through vending machines in South Florida. By serving a niche segment of the $321 billion dollar fishing industry, Pop's Vending will position itself as a high-quality, innovative company that creates value for its customers.

FUNDING SOURCES

  • State of Florida Division of Vocational Rehabilitation
  • Social Security Administration Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS)
  • Pop's Vending, LLC

HOW DID IT ALL BEGIN?

On a Sunday afternoon, back in September, 2002, Papo's family saw an article in The Miami Herald with the headline: "LATEST IN FISHING CONVENIENCE: LIVE BAIT IN VENDING MACHINES." Papo's family decided to buy one of the live bait vending machines as a "test." The machine was placed at Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, and it was used for Papo to learn how to service the machine and determine if it was the career that he wanted. The machine is now owned by Pop's Vending, LLC.
