My name is Debbie Pugliese and I am the Marketing Manager for the ParSal Vending Company in Oceanside, NY. Some of you may remember me from my former position as Marketing Manager for the former Folz Vending Company in Oceanside, NY.
ParSal Vending is currently selling the All American Chicken Machine and we have been receiving many orders for it from members on this forum. The All American Chicken Machine is a big hit and we are happy to be able to provide you with such a fantastic machine!!
We have noticed that there are quite a few inquiries regarding the vending industry on this forum. The same questions seem to keep arising and to help out the industry we will be publishing and sharing our monthly newsletter with all of you. Our first newsletter, the ParSal Post was an amazing hit with operators around the country.
As many of you already know, some of our senior staff members were employed by the former Folz Vending Company. Our current staff has been involved in vending over many decades and brings a wealth of experience to ParSal Vending Company. Together these employees have serviced over 150,000 bulk, sticker and spiral machines throughout the United States and Canada. We also, at various times had separate divisions to service over 900 video games, 80,000 charity machines benefiting the March of Dimes and the Muscular Dystrophy Association, 10,000 bulk machines in mom and pops and thousands of honor boxes, cranes and kiddie rides. Our staff members have also been involved with the development of the most advanced and proprietary vending route management computer system developed in-house and operated by three full-time computer programmers and a dedicated staff of over 30 people. Our knowledge in the many areas of vending could be of value to the operator members on this site.
One of our key employees is Ron Astrackon. Ron started with the former
Folz Vending Company in 1973 when they were located at 3199 Lawson Blvd,
Oceanside, NY. It just so happens in May, ParSal will be moving into this building. And coincidentally, the former Folz telephone number 516-678-3600 is now the ParSal telephone number. Ron Astrackon started as a Swingman then rose to a Route Representative, then Supervisor, Regional Supervisor and National Operations Manager. Ron has traveled throughout the United States and Canada securing and surveying locations, hiring and training Route Representatives and Supervisors. He also was very instrumental in developing many of the programs that once were used.
Because we have been asked to share our wealth of knowledge, we are producing a free monthly newsletter discussing many pertinent vending related topics and a column written by Ron Astrackon. Topics will include setting up routes, locating tips and techniques, hiring and training staff, and success stories. We would like to interview an operator each month and highlight what they have to say. We want to include your photos, comments and topics of interest to YOU!! This will be your newsletter and we want as much input as possible.
This newsletter is free and will be offered to everyone. You do not need
to be a customer of ours. From time to time, we will interview former Folz employees to further enhance your knowledge. We will also give you updates on ParSal Vending as well.
If you are interested in receiving this newsletter, please email the following to my attention:
Newsletters will be sent via email unless paper mail is requested. We encourage your stories, questions and comments.
Please email me this information to email@example.com

A handy spreadsheet to help you correctly depreciate your vending machines. Calculations in this worksheet are performed automatically.
Here is an Excel spreadsheet that sold on eBay a couple years ago. It was marketed as a bulk vending route manager. It is a simple way to keep track of the basic details of a small route.
Easy Use Instructions
Note: The first ticket listed in your service record is filled in as an example. You may use it as a reference or, once you are more comfortable with the format, you can fill it in with one of your own locations.
Description of Features
The Service Account Number (ex. sa0001): This number is located at the top left of every ticket. It is used to identify each account. It is therefore a quick and easy identifier when pulling up existing accounts.
Map: The “Map” is used to physically locate your account. Simply add the map code to your account’s address in this space. You can find the map code to your account’s address by looking up the address in the back of a map book. The best map book in my opinion is The Thomas Guide but any map or map book will do.
Address: Enter the address of your account here.
Phone: Enter your account’s phone number here.
Hours: Enter your account’s open hours here.
Service: Enter how often your machine needs to be serviced. For example, you may have a real busy location which needs to be serviced on a monthly basis. You could simply write “monthly” in this space. A slower location may be better serviced “bimonthly.”
Key: Enter the color and code (if any) of your machine’s key. You may end up with different keys as your route grows and this will save you a lot of headaches.
Date: Enter the date in which you service your account.
Bag#: When you service your machines, the easiest way to collect your money is with a bag. You can even use large zip lock bags. Write a number on each bag, making sure to have enough bags to service your route for the day. When you service your location grab any of the bags (it doesn’t matter what number it is) and collect your coins. When you return to your car write down on your ticket what bag number or numbers you used. When you go home to count your money you’ll know exactly which bag goes to which location.
Lft. M. Rt.: These represent the type of candy in each head or section of your machine. If you have a double head just fill in the type of candy for the left and right head. If you have a trivend, fill in the type of candy for the left, middle and right section.
Lft$ Rt$: These symbols represent how much money you collect from each respective section on your machine. If you have a trivend, there will be only one section for your coins to fall into and you can therefore just fill in the amount on one side. This will help you to monitor the productivity of each particular candy and allow you to make any necessary adjustments.
Comments: Any important notes may be filled in here.
Total: Your account’s monthly running total will automatically be added here for you. This will make your job a little easier come tax time.
Getting Your Tickets Ready!
You are almost ready to go service your machines, but first…
1. Enter your account’s name, map code, address, phone#, hours, service frequency, key code, map code, and candy type for each location you have.
2. Print your tickets. I have found that 8½” by 11” white “card stock” paper works the best. It is thick and durable and easy to take with you.
1. Go to File
2. Go to print
3. Go to print range and click on “pages from”
4. Look at the service ticket number or “sa number.” This number is also the page number. Type pages from 1 to 1 if your ticket number is sa0001.
5. Click O.K.
Congratulations! you’re ready to go service you’re machines!
When You Return.
To find your accounts quickly using your Route Manager…
1. Go to Edit.
2. Click on Find
3. Type either:
A. The location name
B.Or type the sa number. (Remember the sa number is much quicker and easier to use.)
4. Click on Find Next. (You should now be at your desired ticket.)
5. Enter your service data.
A template designed to help you place a specific dollar value on your business. It will do so by using three of the most commonly discussed valuation methods. Consequently, it will provide three specific, and very different, values that could be used under different buy/sell situations.
Worksheet is in Excel format.
This worksheet can be printed out and used when you collect from your commissioned locations. Simply count the number of quarters and do the math. It also provides a receipt for your locations and a well documented paper trail.
