29 Aug A Vending Machine Company With More
The Philadelphia market is crowded with vending machine companies. The large, national companies offer the latest technology, while the small, local companies pride themselves on service. When Bob Betz started One Source Refreshment 40 years ago, he had one delivery truck and no idea what the future would bring. Today, his company is the largest independent vending provider in the greater Philadelphia area. His success is built largely on the fact that he brings his customers the best of both worlds – the power of a large national company and the personalized service of a local provider.
Committing to the local community
One Source Refreshment values its roots in the greater Philadelphia area. It employs friends, neighbors, and community members in all aspects of the business. When you call the office, you are greeted by their customer service specialist, Holly, who is extremely knowledgeable and always eager to help. You will see their company participating in and supporting community charity drives and fundraisers. You will also benefit from Bob’s strong ties to local dairies, bakeries, and snack providers when you are enjoying the delicious, regional foods that national companies don’t offer.
Providing the Technology & Service of National Companies
The continuous improvement of One Source’s facilities and equipment sets them apart from other local providers. They run a clean, spacious, 24,000 square foot distribution center right at their office headquarters in Pottstown, PA. Their advanced systems communicate wirelessly with each vending machine and micro-market, then generate orders based on up to the minute sales information. The process ensures customers never run out of their favorite snacks and beverages – and equals the systems that national companies use.
One Source Refreshment is also part of the USConnect® network, a national organization of the industry’s leading independent foodservice companies. The partnership allows One Source to leverage their buying power – and offer product assortments that surpass their rivals in variety and selection. Customers also gain access to exclusive money-saving promotions, rewards programs, and more.
Delivering Uncompromising Quality
One Source maintains the highest quality standards for their fresh foods, beverages, and snacks. Every delivery truck is temperature-controlled and loaded fresh daily to fill each customer’s specific needs. In the warehouse, fresh foods are kept between 38-42 degrees at all times. Fresh foods are never exposed to temperature shifts and delivery trucks are never used to hold backup inventory. For their micro-markets and fresh food vending machines, One Source works with their partners to offer delicious and creative recipes. They are crafted from the finest ingredients and are USDA, FDA, and US Military certified for quality.
One Source Refreshment is a unicorn in the vending industry, combining the very best qualities of both national and local vending companies. They raise the bar for thousands of busy Philadelphians looking to satisfy their hunger on the go. From workplaces and schools to community centers and hospitals, Bob and his employees look after the people in their community and continually strive to give them a better vending experience.
