Vendgogh, a provider of gas island vending solutions, recently 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 gas and a cold beverage, right 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, said in a prepared statement. “The Vendgogh offering allows convenience stores to take these low margin ‘gas and go’ customers and turn them 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 gas locations in the U.S. Vendgogh will be installing their first customer locations in Canada in the second quarter of this year.
