When Ryder received a gumball machine for his birthday, he decided to start a business: Ryder’s Riches LLC. Ryder’s Traveling Gumball Machine spends time visiting shops and restaurants in the Lafayette, Louisville, and Boulder area, adventuring to a new spot every month or two.
The best part about owning a business for Ryder, besides seeing how much money he makes, is being able to donate 20 percent of his profits to charity. The gumball machine host selects a charity to support, and Ryder estimates that he has gifted more than $300 in the last year.
With the help of his mentor Leroy Williams, CEO of CyberTeKIQ, Ryder hopes to expand his business in the coming year. Discover where Ryder’s Machine heads next on his Facebook page.
