CARY, N.C. -- Vendgogh LLC, a leading provider of Gas Island Vending Solutions, has announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Northwest Pump & Equipment, a leading solution integrator to convenience stores in nine states from California to Washington, including, Arizona, Idaho, Oregon, Alaska, Montana , Hawaii and Nevada.
Northwest Pump will market, install and maintain Vendgogh's patented Gas Island Vending solution, which allows gasoline customers to purchase and pick up a cold beverage at the fuel dispenser island.
"This is a great service that allows the gas customer to purchase a drink with a single swipe of their credit or debit cards without ever leaving the fuel island," said Gregg Miller, president of Northwest Pump. "This also allows convenience stores to increase revenue from customers who do not go inside the store."
Vendgogh's vending systems are currently installed at Kangaroo Express stores and Murphy Oil gas locations in the Southeast. "We are looking forward to working with Northwest to reach the 75% of gas customers that never go into the store. This is the ultimate convenience for those customers," said Mark Baric, Vendgogh CEO.
Based in Portland, Ore., Northwest Pump distributes petroleum equipment, industrial pumps and compressors and car wash systems throughout nine western states. Northwest Pump has 16 stocking warehouses and provides service with in-house service people and service partners throughout the territory.
Vendgogh, with headquarters in Cary, N.C., delivers a patented, UL-approved innovative gasoline island vending solution for c-stores. It is designed to help increase revenue/profits and improve customer loyalty for c-store owners while enhancing the shopper experience.
