Throughout Europe and Japan clusters of vending machines are quite common. Get & Go Express is the first of its kind in the United States. We are experiencing from 1,000 to 1,200 vends per day at our test locations, 90% of which are from drive in traffic.
Springfield, IL (PRWEB) March 24, 2006
Get & Go Express was an instant success when it opened September 2004 in Springfield, Illinois. It is the brainchild of Jeffrey A. Parsons, the inventor of the unique portable structure that houses up to 34 vending machines offering soda, candy, chips, other snacks, hot and cold food, and merchandise.
Following is the scoop on Get & Go Express in the words of Founder and CEO Jeff Parsons: “We have had a lot of interest from entrepreneurs interested in operating/owning their own Get & Go Express. This unique business model is a natural for franchising. The business can be operated 24 hours a day 365 days a year without employees. The owners work only a few hours a week to service, clean, and fill the machines. Our patented buildings are fully portable and do not require permanent anchoring. This allows us to utilize highly visible commercial lots that may not be available to new construction. Additionally, if a location does not prove to be profitable the business can be relocated with minimal cost.

This April Get & Go Express will open four locations in West Central Florida. These will be the first of many Get & Go Express locations opening throughout the United States.
