Matt Miller spent the first 9 years of his career as an Air Force pilot before entering the corporate world to work at both Abbott Laboratories and Valassis. While a top performer for both companies, his long term desire was to start a business and be his own boss.
A good friend one day mentioned the gum ball machines he and his young daughters owned, and that conversation began a 10 year business quest that has brought Matt’s franchise company, School Spirit Vending, to the cutting edge of both the vending and school fundraising industries.
Matt talks about the challenges of leaving military service while raising a family. His story is of perseverance, hard work, and dedication to providing for his family. Matt shares his perspective about what it took him to build a prosperous franchise business on the side while working full-time with a goal to be his own boss.
Today, the School Spirit Vending franchise is helping professionals across the country develop more freedom and security while supporting local schools at the same time.
