The following policy has been effective since June 1, 1994 and has recently been revised. It is being reissued as a reminder to the University community.
Exclusive Vending Contract
The University has awarded the campus vending machine contract exclusively to Vendlink LLP, a division of the Compass Group, effective July 1, 2005. Vendlink partners with the Philadelphia Coca-Cola Bottling Group and Pepsi Bottling Group for beverage vending services. Campus Dining Services conducted a formal bid process that resulted in the selection of Vendlink.
In selecting Vendlink, we have achieved quality brand name products and the promise of excellent service, as well as financial benefits for the University.
In order to maximize benefits to the University, it is important to uphold the integrity of this contract’s exclusivity. Schools and Centers that now have vending machines supplied by a company other than Vendlink should make arrangement to have those machines removed.
Laurie Cousart, director, Business Services, oversees campus food services and vending services. If you have questions, suggestions or concerns about vending machines in your area, please contact her at (215) 5573-2332 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
