CARY, N.C. -- Vendgogh LLC, a leading provider of gasoline dispenser island vending solutions, has announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with McKinney Petroleum Equipment, a multi-state solution integrator to convenience stores.
McKinney Petroleum Equipment will market, install and maintain Vendgogh's patented "Gas Island Vending" solution, which allows customers to purchase fuel and a cold beverage at the pump with a single swipe of their credit or debit card.
"This is a great offering that allows C-stores to generate significant revenue and profits from the 'gas and go' customers that never go into the c-store", said Kevin McKinney, president of McKinney Petroleum Equipment. "The Vendgogh offering allows convenience stores to take these low-margin 'gas-and-go' customers and turn then into high-margin customers."
"We are looking forward to working with McKinney Petroleum Equipment to turn the gas island into a significant profit center for the c-stores," said Mark Baric, Vendgogh CEO.
In addition to McKinney Petroleum Equipment, Vendgogh has previously announced partnership agreements with Jones & Frank, Northwest Pump and Reliable Oil Equipment. Vendgogh's vending systems are currently installed at Kangaroo Express (Pantry), Murphy Oil, Douglass Distributing and other gasoline locations.
Vendgogh will be installing its first customer locations in Canada in the second quarter of this year, the company said.
McKinney Petroleum Equipment is based in Mobile, Ala., specializes in the sales, service and installation of petroleum, commercial and industrial equipment. McKinney has been servicing customers in Alabama, Mississippi and the Florida panhandle for 80 years.
