March 7th marks the inaugural day of vending across the country. This is a celebration for the millions of Americans who buy snacks, beverages, and non-consumables from a vending machine every day! Below we outline how National Vending fits into convenience service and a few facts you might not know about the industry.
Vending is the cornerstone of the conveniences services industry. According to the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) “With a total economic impact of nearly $25 billion, the US Convenience Services industry is represented in every community across the United States through traditional vending and micro markets – unattended retail – as well as office coffee and pantry services.”
From manufacturing, small-drop distribution and vending management, the industry meets the needs of consumers everywhere they are – at work, at home and everywhere in between. At National Vending, we fit under the vending management aspect of the convenience service industry. By working with valued and high-quality service partners across the country, we are able to serve as your single point-of-contact for all your refreshment program needs.
Great question! If your company is looking to place all locations under one easy to understand contract for a refreshment program, contact us. We work with you to identify service partners you already work with or new service partners in your area. National Vending will coordinate the installation of your desired refreshment program, from a traditional vending, a micro market to a coffee set up for employees, we’ve got it all. We are able to work within your limits to bring you a quality refreshment program.
The service doesn’t end after the contract is signed and a new refreshment program is in place. At National Vending we negotiate the terms of your refreshment service in accordance with your program objectives. We provide a customer service line to handle day-to-day service concerns and provide detailed reporting by asset. This means we provide your staff with more time to do the job they were hired for.
Vending management is a small part of the convenience service industry, yet it plays a vital role in bringing quality refreshment programs to a variety of locations.
