DO I BUY THE VENDING MACHINE?
No. We provide the vending machine, stock it and service it weekly.
IS THERE ANY COST TO ME?
There is no cost to you. We help you decide what machine best fits your needs and deliver it to your business. If you have any problems with the machine, we will fix it.
ALEX STOCKS THE MACHINE? HOW DOES THAT WORK?
Alex shows up once a week with his product, his hand truck and his red headphones. He stocks your entire machine, looks for any problems and moves on to his next location. If you have any questions our support person can help.
IS THIS A NON-PROFIT?
Nope. PIE is a licensed, insured business, and part of the emerging ‘for profit’ business model being used to employ autistic adults. Being a for-profit business allows us to focus our resources on building a self-sustaining, community-based business that meets the needs of its employees and customers.
SO WE JUST HOST THE MACHINE?
You’re doing so much more than that. When you host one of our machines you are making a space in our community for our growing Autistic population. The latest statistics show that one in 45 children has an Autism diagnosis. You probably know somebody raising an autistic child. When you place one of our machines in your business, you’re telling that parent that Autistic independence, employment and a acceptance in their community is possible, and that its important to you.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?
We offer a personalized service with special custom mixes of delicious snacks, such as vegetarian, organic, chocolate lovers, Northwest specialties or gluten-free. Many of our snacks are made regionally by small businesses we partner with. You won’t find a tastier or more carefully selected array of vended snacks anywhere.
