Ford Gum originated in 1913 when 20 year old Ford Mason was a roofing salesman who spent the warmer seasons repairing roofs and traveling by horse and buggy. In winter, he stayed at home until Ford met a man who had engaged him in the business of operating chewing gum vending machines.

The gum vending machines had just been introduced only a few years prior and only a handful of entrepreneurs knew of the industry. Ford was so impressed with the industry that he borrowed money to lease 102 gum vending machines, spreading them across Western New York.

Ford realized that success meant giving customers their money's worth. Ford then quit the roofing business and devoted all his energy to selling gum. Ford's father, a Baptist minister, was pleased with his son's decision. And soon after Ford began his crusade for better business ethics, Reverend Mason said: "Make your own machines, my boy, and share your profits with God."

Ford Mason took his father's advice is now a matter of history. Ford began with limited resources, but with unlimited enthusiasm, he created a business empire stretching from coast to coast. Over 500,000 vending machines perched on store counters and pipe pedestals in countless North American communities testify to the magnitude of his operations. To service this army of machines, Ford set up a nationwide system of operators.

From a network of distributors to a broad range of new popular products and state of the art equipment, the Ford Gum & Machine Company continues to deliver high-quality, innovative candy, gum and novelty products.
