"We are very encouraged with the reception we are seeing in the market for our Grab It-Taste It-Love It" Mini Melt retail merchandisers," stated Raymond Meyers, U-Vend, Inc. CEO. "Since we announced the initial placement of 45 merchandisers in our first target market of Southern California in mid-August, we've secured an additional 75 locations, bringing our total coverage to 120 locations, as of today. This represents a significant lift in the number of merchandisers, and puts us well ahead of our stated goal of adding one new customer a day and 500 by the end of 2017. In addition, the growth and reputation of our brand is providing U-Vend with additional revenue and partnering opportunities we hope to announce shortly," added Meyers.
U-Vend, Inc "Grab It-Taste It-Love It" Merchandiser Program
The program is aimed at high-traffic establishments such as convenience stores, fast food locations and gas stations that are not large enough to support the placement of a large vending machine, but will support the addition of a lower cost, high-margin product sales solution such as the U-Vend merchandiser. The Company's merchandiser freezer comes in two sizes, 5.2 cubic ft. and 3.5 cubic ft. and hold between 100-200 units of pre-cup Mini Melts ice cream.
