“Partnering
with FastCorp as their exclusive Canadian vending distributor will
allow us to streamline the growth of our strategic brand and product
placements throughout Canada.  Working with a consistent line of
durable, high-technology machines will also allow for more efficient
installation and management of not only our kiosks, but also of our
clients country-wide,” said Paul Neelin U-Vend founder and chief operating officer, in a news release.

of their corporate location requirements and will also be
representing and marketing FastCorp machines to independent kiosk

“To
have U-Vend represent us within the Canadian market provides us with a
tremendous expansion opportunity,” said Brian Weinstein, president of
FastCorp. “The executives at U-Vend have demonstrated the ability
to market, promote, install, and service our automated kiosks
nationwide.  We look forward to working with the U-Vend team in a
long-term partnership."

The
evolution in retail shopping habits and consumer expectations have
opened up a tremendous opportunity for innovative self-serve kiosks and
robotic delivery of perishable and non-perishable consumer goods, said the release. In a 2013 study by the IHL Group, a global research and advisory firm specializing in technologies for the retail and hospitality industries, transactions
at self-service kiosks are growing better than seven per cent per year in North
America with transactions through these devices expected to grow past
$1.0 trillion this year.
