Everest Ice and Water Systems Partners with SandenVendo America

SandenVendo America adds patented ice vending machine to their list of offerings

Everest Ice and Water Systems has partnered with Dallas-based vending machine manufacturer, SandenVendo America. SandenVendo America produces and distributes world-class convenience equipment to serve consumers-on-the-go. With this new partnership, SandenVendo America will now offer their customers a uniquely designed ice and water vending machine using Everest’s patented dispensing technology.

“We’ve been researching ice vending for a number of years, but we were never really impressed with the technology out there. However when we found Everest, we were blown away by the design,” said Mike Weisser, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at SandenVendo America.

“The issue with most ice vending machines is the maintenance. Ice jams are common to these machines. Everest however has designed a machine that eliminates that issue.”

The Ins and Outs of Ice Vending

Thaw out frozen profits with ice vending sales

For customers, drive-up ice vending is popular due to its convenience. According to Ben Gaskill, director of sales with Everest Ice and Water Systems, the profit center attracts all types of customers, and everyone who uses the ice vending center will drive up to the machine in vehicles. These are vehicles that potentially may need washing.

But, this relationship can work in reverse as well. Carwashes typically have a built-in customer base, and these dedicated customers can help the ice vending profit center get off to a fast start. Gaskill explains, “As time goes on and news of the new machine spreads, it will pull ice customers to the carwash owner’s property that will patronize the wash. It’s really a great relationship and a natural fit.”
