a recession proof industry.
Choice has been empowering individuals in their entrepreneurial
efforts since 1987. The company provides vending machines and support

Darla and Carl have 61 machines. Their business is reaching companies
in Northeast Ohio and growing on a daily basis. "I have more

Only working a 30-hour workweek, Darla is able to spend valuable
time with her husband during his fight against cancer. Carl was
also able to fully retire from his 50-hour workweek at age 55. Furthermore,

snacking business is a life changing decision," says Darla.
"Like any honest business it takes time to develop and has
taught me what life is really all about."
