The Acme Vending Corporation is a Kama'aina company. We are the longest established full line vending machine company in the State of Hawaii. We have provided uninterrupted service to the people of Hawaii for over twenty years. Acme Vending is the sole purveyor of vending services to a select group of clientele.
Ours is a relationship based, and a value based, Kamaaina company. Our customers value the service, product assortment, and equipment only we can provide. This is a given. Of greater importance to us is this: We believe our customers value our integrity and the comittment to the community we strive for. Our mission is to partner with; and be of service to; those customers in Hawaii who share those same values with us.
Acme Vending owns all the cold drink vendors it has placed with its customers. We do not place "Coke" or "Pepsi" machines at any of the facillities we service. We make the financial investment in this equipment that the other vendors do not. This financial commitment allows us to offer Coke andPepsi products in the same machine. Further, we offer cold drinks in 12 ounce can packages as well as 20 or 24 ounce bottle packages from the same machine. This provides the consumers with the choice they want and the owner of the facility where equipment is placed with the savings she needs on floor space and electricity. Further, we offer products from the smaller independent beverage producers in Hawaii. These products include but are not limited to Aloha Maid,Hawaiin Sun, Itoen, & Diamond Head
Our vending equipment can be found in School, Government, Business, Retail, and Industrial locations. Because of our position in the wellness community, we are the single source vendor for all of the YMCA's in Oahu. Our corporate clients include but are not limited to BANKOH and HECO.
We are a "full line" vendor. The equipment we maintain is capable of offering cold drinks, snack food, refrigerated food, frozen food, coffee, and ice cream products. Prior to placing equipment, we partner with our customers with a view towards making sure the equipment we provide is the best fit for them.
The Acme Vending Corporation is the only licensed factory distributor of vending Equipment in Hawaii. We are distributors for Crane Merchandising Systems. We are factory trained to support and service this increasingly technologically sophisticated equipment. This is the equipment we utilize on the operating side of our organization. We sell, lease, and or service the same for other vending operators on the island as well.
We are currently in the process of installing radios in all of our machines. This new telemetry will allow us to provide 24/7 remote monitering of our equipment. Once fully implemented, this telemetry will provide us with real time knowledge of the product level, functioning, temperature, and otherwise all aspects of the machine we otherwise could only have known by traveling out to the machine. This telemetry will allow credit card acceptance in all our equipment. All of this critical information will be available 24/7 on the i-phones of all the members of our team.
Howard Merl, the founder, continues to be the director of the organization. He remains personally involved in all aspects of the operation.
