PORTLAND, OR -- PayRange Inc. said American Food & Vending (Syracuse, NY) will deploy its BluKey devices in its 50 branches, which serve 35 U.S. markets. This rollout comes on the heels of two separate pilot programs conducted by AFV.

Vending machines equipped with PayRange's BluKey "dongle," which installs in seconds, enable customers with phones running the PayRange app to make cashless purchases. The app can be funded with credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, Android Pay, coupons and payroll deductions.

"We started an initial pilot program with PayRange late last year to see if the good things we'd been hearing would be applicable for our locations and our customers," said Josh Wells, a principal of American Food and Vending. He said two pilot runs exceeded his expectations.

AFV is also using PayRange technology to access customer insight and to offer vend incentives at points of sale.
