"We originally purchased two vending machines 2 years ago,
one for each of our 2 campuses.
But, because we couldn't keep them fully stocked long
enough we had to purchase another one
last year. Since then, we have sold over 32,000 items out
of them totaling over $22,000 in sales.
Most of our items are .25 or .50 cents. Because our vending
machines are selling scantrons and
blue books for us, we have been able to close our store an
hour early and still accommodate our
students. They are very easy to stock, easy to operate and
we have had nothing but
compliments from our customers."

As of this June 2010 our 3 machines have
captured over $115,000 in sales. Every year since fall 2003
(our first machines) sales have increased. Each machine
currently averages over $10,000 a year.
The Chaffey College bookstore owns five scantron and
supplies vending machines, four at the off campus sites and
one on the main campus. This has been a great benefit to our
students, as they are able to purchase scantrons before the
bookstore opens, after the bookstore closes, on Saturdays and
at the off campus sites after the bookstores are closed. The
vending machines have enhanced our customer service
tremendously. U.A.I. Vending has been a pleasure to work with.
They have made the newness of the experience an easy one with
their prompt and courteous service. They are always ready to
respond to any questions or needs that may arise. I highly
recommend them for your

Our new UAI vending machine is great. The first two weeks
we sold over $800 in product. Student satisfaction with the
machine is high. The best part is, we can service our weekend
without going to the expense of opening and staffing the
bookstore. I am planning on purchasing more machines for our
other campuses. PS - We're even selling "NO DOZ" out of the
