KWIK Vending Service has stocking issues.

The company (KWIK Vending Service) that handles the vending machines where I work isn’t perfect at stocking the machines.

They put the wrong things in them, with the wrong prices (which costs my employer money, because it’s subsidized, and I’ve been told that KWIK charges based on what passes through the machine, regardless of price).

They often just spread out the items that haven’t sold (presumably to avoid bringing new inventory in). They’re losing sales, and people can’t get what they want. It’s annoying.

For a while, we had a chart hanging on the machine to remind the stocker how the items were supposed to be laid out… but it was consistently ignored.

I guess the competition for vending companies in Utah isn’t very stiff.
