MOBILE, AL -- Carts Blanche LLC is shipping its VendaCarts trailer like the one shown here. The custom-designed mobile automated retail stores are designed to accommodate as many as nine vending machines plus peripherals from microwave ovens and condiment stands to changers and automated teller machines.
Towed to a site where fast, high-volume refreshments are needed, the trailer's sides swing up to form awnings. The unit can support the latest technologies, including digital signage and remote monitoring, and can be run by a single attendant. It can be deployed to areas without utilities connections.
Company founder and chief executive Annette Antoine Nolan, an expert in concession cart and kiosk design, has spent several years networking with engineers and designers to refine the VendaCart concept. Its introduction permits bringing the benefits of vending service to new locations, ranging from special events through construction sites.
To expedite operator acquisition of its mobile automatic kiosk, Carts Blanche has announced a partnership with Falcon Leasing LLC.
"Locating a reliable financing company that understands the vending, catering, concession and food industries was of prime importance to us," Nolan said.
Nolan explained that, with credit becoming more difficult to obtain through traditional providers, "we looked to alternative funding as a source to ensure that our customers could finance their VendaCarts mobile automated businesses."
According to the Carts Blanche chief executive, Falcon Leasing has broken the traditional leasing mold by offering a range of financing options to meet clients' unique requirements plus a wealth of innovative, timesaving online tools enabling operators to concentrate on their prospects instead of on paperwork.
"They have taken the time to understand our sales process, customers and market in order to develop a program that meets our customers' specific needs," she added. "Falcon offers a deeper level of tailored service and support, all to help drive more revenue, more quickly."
Falcon Leasing, an affiliate of Falcon National Bank, has funded leases for businesses ranging from the small local retailer to the Fortune "500" corporations. With the financial strength to fund and service their own portfolio, it also provides a broad network of banking relationships to syndicate lease applications meeting the widest range of credit requirements for their vendors' customers.
"Partnering with Falcon Leasing gives our customers the best opportunity to turn their dreams into realities," Nolan summed up. "We introduce the client, and they take it from there. It's quick, it's easy and it's complete.
