The Acme Vending Corporation is the longest established full line vending operator in the State of Hawaii. We have provided uninterupted service to the people of Hawaii for over twenty five years. Acme Vending is the sole purveyor of vending services to a select group of clientele.
We are a relationship based and value based Kama'aina company. Our Customers value the service, assortment, and technologically advanced equipment only we can provide. That said, of greater importance is the shared core values we have with our customers. The customers we partner with value our integrity and commitment to the community; much the same as we value those qualities in them. Our mission is to partner with; and be of service to; those customers in Hawaii who share our same values.
Acme Vending is the owner of all the cold drink vendors it has placed with its customers. We do not place "Coke" or "Pepsi" machines at any of the facilities we service. This allows us to offer Coke and Pepsi products in the same machine.
Further, we offer products from the smaller independent beverage producers in Hawaii. These products include but are not limited to Aloha Maid, Hawaiian Sun, Itoen, & Diamond Head.
Our Vending equipment may be found in School, Government, Business, Retail, and Industrial locations. Because of our position in the wellness community, we are the single source vendor fo all of the YMCA's in Oahu. Our clients include but are not limited to BANKOH, HECO, HART, and The Hawaii Convention Center.
We are a "full line" vendor. We maintain equipment capable of offering cold drinks, snack food, refrigerated food, coffee, and ice cream products.
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.
All of our vending machines are equiped with radios. The data we harvest from this 24/7 telemetry includes but is not limited to:
- Product level and re-stock requirements
- Proper funtioning of the monetary devices
- Internal temperature of refrigerated equipment
- Any and all mechanical malfunction
The real time sales data we harvest from our equipment allows us to optimize our category management and assortment. Merchandising decisions are not based on anecdotal information. They are all data driven.
Howard Merl, the founder, continues to be the director of the organization. He remains personally involved in all aspects of the operation.
