VENDING PERMITS FOOD SERVICE TO GROW WITH COLLEGE.
RUSHING, JOE B.
WHEN FUNDS WERE NOT AVAILABLE FOR BUILDING A CAFETERIA AT THE JUNIOR COLLEGE OF BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA, USE OF VENDING MACHINES PROVED TO BE AN EFFECTIVE MEANS OF PROVIDING FOOD SERVICE TO THE STUDENTS OF THE GROWING COLLEGE. SANDWICH SERVICE HAD ALREADY BEEN FOUND UNSATISFACTORY, AND LACK OF KITCHEN FACILITIES PRECLUDED PREPARATION OF FOOD ON THE CAMPUS. LACK OF CAPITAL FUNDS AND TRAINED PERSONNEL NECESSITATED CONTRACTING WITH A VENDING SERVICE. A COLLEGE WISHING TO USE SUCH A PLAN SHOULD CONSIDER FIVE QUESTIONS--(1) IS THE VENDOR RELIABLE. (2) CAN THE VENDOR PROVIDE A FULL LINE OF SERVICE. (3) HOW WILL THE MACHINES BE SERVICED. (4) IS PROPER CHANGE READILY AVAILABLE. (5) IS THE CONTRACT PROPERLY DRAWN. VENDING MACHINES HAVE A PLACE IN A COLLEGE FOOD SERVICE, BUT THEY SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED THE FINAL OR COMPLETE ANSWER TO FOOD SERVICE NEEDS. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY BUSINESS," VOLUME 37, NUMBER 5, NOVEMBER 1964. (WO)
