My name is Valentino and i'm the owner of VDL Vending LLC.
I'm an athlete and i always try to mantain a healthy life style.
I started this business since i want to provide to your company the best brands of healthy snacks, so people can stay in shape and be more productive at work.
I always looked for healthy snacks while working in my office at my previous job and couldn't ever find anything other that the usual junk.
I'd like to give you the opportunity to be able to select from low sugar, less ingredients, all natural but still really tasty snacks.
Are your employees tired of junk-food only vending machines at work? Now days, most employees are looking for healthy, natural or low-calorie snack options to help propel them through their busy days and late nights.
VDL Vending is the right choice for both companies and their employees. It’s just getting started, so hold on! More and more people are becoming interested in living healthier lifestyles and are becoming educated about what they should eat. “All-Natural”, “Organic”, “0 Trans Fat”, and “Antioxidants” are the hot buttons of this ever-increasing, high demand market. Now you can be rewarded by filling this need with the VDL Vending opportunity.
Our company is focused on the environment and on helping organizations so we decided to donate a part of our revenue to Living Water International which exists to demonstrate the love of God by helping communities acquire desperately needed clean water, and to experience "living water"—the gospel of Jesus Christ—which alone satisfies the deepest thirst.
In 1990, we set out to help the church in North America be the hands and feet of Jesus by serving the poorest of the poor. More than a billion people in the world live on less than a dollar a day. At least 663 million people lack access to safe drinking water.
For all practical purposes, these statistics refer to the same people; around the world, communities are trapped in debilitating poverty because they constantly suffer from water-related diseases and parasites, and/or because they spend long stretches of their time carrying water over long distances.
In response to this need, we implement participatory, community-based water solutions in developing countries. Since we started, we’ve completed more than 18,000 water projects (and counting!).
It all began in 1990, when a group from Houston, Texas, traveled to Kenya and saw the desperate need for clean drinking water. They returned to Houston and founded a 501(c)3 non-profit. The fledgling organization equipped and trained a team of Kenyan drillers, and LWI Kenya began operations the next year under the direction of a national board. That pattern continues today; we train, consult, and equip local people to implement solutions in their own communities in the countries where we work.
Remembering the life-changing nature of that first trip in 1990, we also lead hundreds of volunteers on mission trips each year, working with local communities, under the leadership of nationals, to implement water projects. It's hard to know which lives are changed more—those "serving" or those "being served." Our training programs in shallow well drilling, pump repair, and hygiene education have equipped thousands of volunteers and professionals in the basics of integrated water solutions since 1997.

VDL Vending snacks are selected from the same sources where your local health food store gets its products. This is another way VDL Vending helps you achieve a healthy bottom line!
Does our company have to pay for the machine?
Not a dime. These healthy machines are provided at absolutely NO cost to your business. In fact, not only do we provide the machine, we service and stock it on a regular basis.
Who stocks the machine?
My company will monitor, stock and service the machine as often is necessary. We are well trained to ensure that the quality of service provided is far superior to anything you may have experienced before with other machines. We are local residents of our community and are therefore eager to share our commitment to offering healthy products to your employees/customers.
Can our company choose the products that go into the machine?
Yes - your company can be instrumental in the products that are offered. We believe it is important to provide a good variety of healthy products in order to satisfy everyone. We will initially fill the machine with the most popular healthy products selling in this area. Later, we will meet with you to discuss changes to the selections and your suggestions – and may offer some free product sampling events as well.
How often is the machine serviced?
Typically, once/week. The machines areequipped with Wireless Remote Monitoring technology so we know if a product selection is running low. If it is determined that it needs to be serviced more often than once each week, we can set up a more frequent service schedule.
Are you trained?
We have gone through extensive training in several areas - including the operation and maintenance of the machine, nutritional guidelines, product management, inventory control, product sampling, etc. But the main thing is customer service –we are here to serve you and the patrons of the machine. We will provide you with a business card and a label on the machine with our contact information should you ever need it.
How many machines can you provide to our business – more than one?
This depends on several factors. First we need to evaluate the volume of foot traffic on a daily basis. Next, we need to consider if there is competition from other vending machines located in your business if you have any. If these two factors confirm there’s enough demand for an additional machine, we will be happy to supply one to your business. Some locations such as large schools, businesses, colleges, etc. may have enough demand for multiple machines.
What types of healthy products will be stocked in the machines?
The healthy products we provide are all national Name Brand items. These are the same products you can find on the shelves of your local health food grocer such as Whole Foods, Trader Joes, etc. Many of these healthier products are now going mainstream and can be found on the shelves of traditional grocery stores and even convenience stores. Not only do the products weoffer provide healthier alternatives, but they also taste great and people really love eating them!
If we have a contract with another vendor, can we still receive a healthy machine?
This depends on the specific contract. Many contracts are exclusive only to “traditional” vending products (e.g. Snickers, Coke, etc.). Therefore, this doesn’t cause an issue as wecan create menu plans of non-competing items to those in a different machine. The reality is that many vending companies claim they can provide healthier options, but very few do.
Do we have to sign an agreement?
We ask that you sign a basic agreement that outlines the relationship between your location and our company– just so everyone is comfortable. This contract has no time commitment. It basically says that we areresponsible for keeping the machine stocked and maintained.
