If one is starting out in the vending industry, McLaren has a simple piece of advice.
“I would buy new equipment and buy USI equipment. A lot of my time at the beginning was spent fixing old vending machines that weren’t working as well. You won’t get the good accounts because they won’t put up with a 15-year-old machine that breaks down all the time.”
When asked about his relationship with USI, McLaren said that he considers a lot of people at USI his friends. He can pick up the phone and call, travel to Des Moines or go to shows and pick up where he left off.
- Created a reputation of providing reliable, quality vending equipment.
- Given customers the same excellent experience that U-Select-It has given them.
- Built a strong relationship with the U-Select-It team.
As for business goals for the future, McLaren keeps it simple: Sell more vending machines.
“We have equipment that works very well and happy customers that are going to come back for more.”
