Factors to Consider when Partnering with a Vending Service in Toronto or beyond
Toronto Office Coffee Services and Toronto Vending Machines
Remember that the experience of the prospective vendor in your
particular environment is key. We have experience in a multitude of
environments: Our ability to listen and communicate with clients is
just one of the skills that allow us to adapt to new environments.
How to gauge the quality of a vending service provider?
We always advise our prospective clients to shop around and find the vending
service provider that best meets the following criteria:
Find programs and promotions leveraging partnerships with other corporate and
prestige customers (link here to clients referrals???). Look for proof that the
prospective partner has exceeded customer expectations. [sample of favourite
Look for Partnerships, not Contracts. [This should be a link that describes in
detail why this benefits the customer, a pro and con list.]
Consider only companies where you are assured of one convenient point of
contact. This helps guarantee that management of the machine, restocking,
loading, preferences study and other services can be done in the most efficient
way possible without tying up your resources. What you don't need is a new
mini-department you now have to manage!
At GTA Vending, our motto is "Simple, Value-Added and Hassle-Free". This is the
objective we aim for in every one of our engagements with our clients.
Make sure that having a vending machine meets your needs at this time. Do you
have 40 people in your office? Would it increase their job satisfaction? If
your answer to these two questions is not a strong yes, consider other
alternatives, such as door-to-door product delivery services. This is a more
cost effective approach and is quite popular for small businesses. GTA Vending

Make sure that the vendor continually upgrades its skills in sales and service
with the latest equipment from the major manufacturers. Good examples of
training and certification include successfully completion of the Quality
Coffee Certification Program through NAMA. GTA Vending is a strong proponent of
such training and has been doing it for years.
Make sure that the vendor is registered to organizations that follow industry
best practices. Doing so guarantees that your partnership is with a company
that is vested in doing things the right way, constantly furthering knowledge
and understanding of how to conduct a better service for you.
