Vendo Company was founded in 1937 in Kansas City, Missouri, as a manufacturer
of vending machines for bottled soft drinks. Today machines such as the Vendo
81, Vendo 39, Vendo 56, Vendo 110, and other are some of the most desirable machines
around. In 1956 the Vendo company decided to acquire the Vendolator company which
at the time produced almost identical machines. After the acquisition Vendo moved
from Kansas City to Fresno California where they are still located today.
