National Vending Day, March 7th

National Vending Day is a celebration for the millions of Americans who buy their snacks, beverages and non-consumable items from a vending machine every day. It’s a point-in-time to recognize vending and the value it provides to millions of consumers, 24/7/365.

With a total economic impact of nearly $25 billion, the US Convenience Services industry is represented in every community across the United States through traditional vending and micro markets — unattended retail — as well as office coffee and pantry services. The industry, providing 140,000 good paying jobs with $7.21 billion in wages, pays $3.5 billion taxes at every level of government.
