Quench Beverage & Snack Co., a full-line vending company serving greater Denver and northern Colorado, is now offering area businesses the option to rent its machines and fill them themselves.
The rental programme, reminiscent of the 1980s cooperative service vending model, is designed to allow employers to supply their workers and staff with drinks and snacks at a lower cost than Quench typically charges.
Locations that opt to rent their machines agree on a set price for cases of drinks and snacks that they purchase from Quench. A Quench representative delivers the machine and the first round of products, along with an invoice. The client can then choose to have a set delivery schedule, or order product by phone or online as needed.
Companies that rent vending machines typically designate one employee to restock and collect money from the machines, allowing them to keep pricing low enough to break even, or make a profit if they choose.
“The vending machine rental model is a way of looking at customers’ vending needs,” said David Carpenter, owner of Quench Beverage & Snack Co. “We like to find creative solutions to earn business and still keep customers’ costs down. What’s more, we provide friendly customer service and a quick restocking time that the national vending machine companies just can’t beat.”
Carpenter is passionate about vending and customer service. Over the summer, Quench launched a service request feature on its website that allows customers to report machines requiring service, or to request specific items.
