Depends on how much sequencing you will doing and what yield you need per sample. If you can afford it, MiSeq may be best, since it is truly a workhorse. You can potentially sell spare capacity to others locally to recoup some of your investment.
I'm not that familiar with either but in my mind I just thought of the MiniSeq as a cheaper version of the MiSeq, with the downside that you can't do long (for Illumina) reads. They both do 25M clusters, do a run in a day, but the MiSeq supports 2x300 reads and the MiniSeq does 2x150.
