ROCKAWAY, NJ -- Full Service Vending announced that it has signed a multiyear vending contract with New York University Langone Medical Center. It includes three hospitals, numerous offices, and the NYU medical school and its dormitories, all located in Manhattan.
NYU, which joins Full Service's client base of more than 60 medical centers throughout New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, operated its own vending for the past 20-plus years. Coca-Cola products were the primary beverages sold.
FSV president Moti Almakias said that as a result of his company's strained relationship with bottler Coca-Cola Enterprises, Pepsi will be NYU Medical Center's vending cola of choice, joined by the Snapple and value-priced Push Beverages lines for a broader variety.
FSV filed a federal lawsuit against Coca Cola Enterprises in 2006 for breach of contract resulting in a six-figure settlement payout to the vending company last year. [see story]
