CHICAGO – February 6, 2019 – With the inaugural National Vending Day – March 7 – a month from today, NAMA encourages member companies to join in the celebration.
“Thank you to the many, many member companies celebrating this milestone with wide-ranging plans – from price promotions and taste-tests, to education events with schools to social responsibility efforts,” said Roni Moore, NAMA’s Vice President of PR.
“This is just what National Vending Day is designed to do: provide a point-in-time opportunity for member companies to customize a plan that works best for them. It’s a win-win, increasing awareness and building excitement around the channel and individual businesses,” she continued. “Remember to use the hashtag -- #vendingday – to inject power and better target your social media posts.”
The first of its kind, National Vending Day will recognize the people who proudly make, sell, enjoy and love vending and the products the channel delivers. From multinational brands beloved around the world to multi-generational business owners, route drivers and plant floor employees, vending touches people’s lives in ways large and small.
To mark this day, NAMA will showcase the industry – which includes vending – and its total economic impact of nearly $25 billion. The U.S. 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. From manufacturing to small-drop distribution, the industry meets the needs of consumers everywhere they are.
Founded in 1936, NAMA is the association representing the $25 billion U.S. convenience services industry. With more than 1,000-member companies – including many of the world’s most recognized brands – NAMA provides advocacy, education and research for its membership.
