There are several advantages to FastCorp's unmatched vending machine design. We were recently featured in Popular Mechanics where journalist Kevin Dupzyk breaks down one of our vending machine models.

"Traditional vending machines—the ones with metal coils—don’t actually hold much food. The coils space out the goods so much that any given row has a fairly low Cheeto-to-air ratio.
