Today's vending customer is more discriminating than ever. To meet the needs of the health conscious, diabetics and people spending more significant amounts of time at work and/or school, manufacturers have expanded available product lines and introduced new products to the marketplace rapidly in the last several years.
DVC Vending has been at the forefront of new product introduction in the vending industry. Again, the best source of information pertaining to products, new and old, are our customers. Periodically, we solicit advice through on site meetings and survey forms. These help determine the menu we offer in a specific location.
Using detailed plan-a-grams also allows us to calculate average product requirements and formulate space to sales ratios by location. What this means is that we can determine which locations require two rows of Snickers, and which require two rows of granola. Not only can we determine which products are more popular, but also we can allot them more space within the machine.
NOTE: DVC Vending remains in compliance with all state and federal regulations in educational accounts.

DVC Vending places only new or factory refitted equipment on location. All machines are equipped with dollar bill acceptors and non-resettable count meters. The advances in equipment technology in the past few years is staggering. Where vending equipment was once simple, mechanical, lever operated machines, the new generation of equipment is, much like the rest of our society, completely computer chip driven. While much more sensitive and complicated, these advances allow vending operators much more flexibility in meeting customer needs.
