Committed to quality

Why Mark Vend?

We get it. Changing vendors brings uncertainty. So why take a chance on Mark Vend? It boils down to one thing: the service you’ll experience.

Building on their parents’ legacy, Mark Vend owners Mark and Daniel Stein are committed to serving their clients better than anyone else in the business. We’re big enough to offer the latest products and technology but small enough that we get to know you, your culture and your concerns. It’s why so many of Chicago’s leading companies have stayed with us for so long.

Delivery & Access

Easy in, easy out.

Restocking your machines, coolers and shelves happens like clockwork. Between our smart technology and efficient drivers, your team never goes hungry or thirsty. And we come by early, so most of the time, you won’t even know we’ve been there.

Our drivers are bonded, uniformed, professional and courteous. They always wear ID badges so you know who is in your space.


More than a job.


There are no contractors on our payroll. Anyone who wears a Mark Vend uniform is a full-time employee — even our installation crews. Most have been with us at least 10 years. This is not just a job for us. It’s been a labor of love since our founding in 1962.

Service & Repairs

Downtime is not an option.

If anything goes wrong with one of your machines, we’re on it. Our highly trained technicians are never far away and respond to most service calls the same day or early the next. If the issue is serious and cannot be fixed quickly, we replace the machine.

Even better: Our technology is so smart that it often alerts us to service issues even before customers know there’s a problem. So no one’s the wiser, and no one misses a snack!

Easy, efficient, reliable.

Start your day right.

Mark Vend regularly invests in the latest smart technology. This allows us to better service your facility and makes payment effortless for your users.
