NEW YORK CITY -- Vengo Labs has announced a partnership with All Star Services (Port Huron, MI), under which All Star will offer Vengo's compact, wall-mounted vending machines to its existing clients. The Michigan vending operation also will employ the Vengo platform to help drive new business, including several accounts provided by Vengo.

"All Star Services is a family business," said All Star purchasing manager Devin Smith. "We always exceed our customers' expectations by providing the latest state-of-the-art technology, so our partnership with Vengo makes perfect sense."

Headed by Jeffery R. Smith, All Star offers vending, office coffee, fresh food, pure water and 24-hour repair services through its four branches covering 31 counties in Michigan. The operation uses the latest vending solutions across its business, including wireless machine technology, customized rewards programs and cashless payment systems. It is a member of USConnect, a nationwide foodservice network.

"Traveling out to All Star's headquarters, I was impressed by the company's size, organization and the integration of technology throughout its operation," said Vengo Labs chief executive Brian Shimmerlik.

Vengo recently received a $2 million deal on ABC's Shark Tank from investors Kevin O'Leary and Lori Greiner. Prior to appearing on that show, it raised $5 million during seed and series A funding rounds. Vengo predicts that, by the end of 2016, consumers can expect to see 1,000 of its vending machines in 15 U.S. cities and on four continents.

Vengo describes its machine as a "digital kiosk" that delivers both consumer packaged goods and advertisements.
