About Social Vend

We have been creating interactive and rewarding social experiences through smart vending machines and interactive kiosks for the past 4 years. Our custom built machines are mostly used for short term events and long term installs to help advertisers and retailers better understand their audience. We have worked with some of the worlds largest brands including McDonalds, RedBull and Pepsi to name a few.
