How We Got Here
and some memories from along the way!
We originally started out as a product vending, amusement and coffee company.
We moved into this 800 sq ft garage/warehouse from a small storage room we rented from a local business. This building was built by our grandfather to house his coal delivery trucks. In front of this building is a residential house where my father was born on the kitchen table. It still stands today.
A low budget forced us to find an inexpensive van. We found this one at a Philadelphia Police Dept auction.
This van was previously used to transport prisoners.
Our first yellow page ad.
One of our first employees – He might look familiar to you. Joe V, who is know to always have a smile on his face, was recently a contestant on the game show Deal or no Deal.
Snack and soda machine located in the Dept of Immigration prison (Manhattan).
The yellow page ad tweaked slightly to fit our budget.
Our first full time employee that came to us from a competitor. We are still friends with him.

This is what candy machines looked like before the glassfront machines of today. Accepted coins only.

Our first coffee yellow page ad.
Our first menu that was used primarily for Deli’s and bagel stores.
First generation of our sales sheet which we manually faxed to anyone and everyone all day long – 5 days a week.
Our first big client – North General Hospital In Harlem. The hospital no longer exists.
Vending machines have a come a long way. From accepting coins only to accepting coins, cash, credit cards, debit cards, Apple Pay and Google Pay
and we’re looking forward to many more exciting years!
