July 3, 2015, Santa Monica, CA – U-Vend, Inc. has begun strategic placement of its “Mini-Melts” self-service kiosks into the Las Vegas region.

The planned expansion of the company’s kiosks commences with the initial placement of machines located within targeted outlets of one of the world’s largest retail chain stores. In addition to high-traffic big box stores, U-Vend will also be placing its kiosks in family entertainment centers, casinos, golf courses and water parks, to name a few, throughout the Las Vegas region.

“We are eager to begin our expansion into the Las Vegas market. Our intention is to replicate the strategic growth model that is proving to be very successful thus far in southern California,” said Raymond Meyers, U-Vend, Inc.’s CEO. “Furthermore, with our new NHL-themed ice cream product, it should come as no surprise that we are rooting for this great city to be awarded an NHL franchise.”

“Our entrance into Las Vegas is fuelled by several significant factors, including its geographic location to our southern California market, the compelling number of potential locations for our kiosks, and the sheer number of consumers that pass through this region on a weekly, monthly and annual basis,” Meyers added.


The population of the Las Vegas metropolitan area is over 2 million, living in an area just under 140 square miles. The city of Las Vegas is visited by an estimated 41 million consumers a year, making it one of the top tourist destinations in the world.

U-Vend, Inc. is a consumer products and automated retailing company specializing in the creation, marketing and sales of unique ice cream and related food products, distributed to the retail markets utilizing various “next-generation” self-serve electronic kiosks throughout North America.
