VendKind stocks a variety of options including top selling brands and healthy choices. At your request, VendKind will survey your staff and stock products that align with their needs and preferences.

VendKind was founded on "paying it forward" principles. We also believe in running a lean business model. This means the products we stock are competitively priced - often times lower than industry average. We also include "surprises" randomly distributed among the selections such as cash or other incentives.
