caserri Posted February 7, 2009 Share Posted February 7, 2009 I thought I would take a moment to post this. I'm sure most of you already know that Mad Dog and Vroom had parted ways and we can all draw our conclusions as to why. Below is a statement pulled directly from the website of Vroom Foods, the makers of Buzz Bites, about their separation from Mad Dog Energy. Notice the part about the negative forum posts. I cant help but to think that we were instrumental in this because to my knowledge, VENDiscuss was the only board that was critical of this "opportunity" from the get go. Other boards that I frequent started out praising and even promoting the opportunity. Our members are smarter than that. This is proof positive that we as a community have the voice to bring about positive change in our industry. Comments? Steve [justify]As of September 12, 2008, Vroom Foods, Inc. terminated its relationship with Mad Dog Energy Products, Inc. If you are unable to obtain Buzz BiteÂ® chocolate or mint chocolate energy chews, or would like to be on our mailing list for future vending communication, please contact Vroom Foods, Inc. at http://www.vroomfoods.com or call us at 949-515-1616. Vroom Foods, Inc. can supply you directly with bulk Buzz Bites at the same price you were paying with only a one case minimum. [/justify] [justify]Also, please be advised that Vroom Foods has no responsibility for any representations or claims that may have been made to you by Mad Dog Energy Products, which until last week was a supplier of Buzz BiteÂ® chocolate and mint chocolate energy chews, or any vending machine company suppliers, as those parties are completely independent of Vroom Foods. Vroom Foods has not authorized anyone to offer exclusive territories or vending routes, nor has Vroom Foods required that anyone purchase a minimum number of vending machines or a minimum starting or replacement inventory of product. Vroom Foods is the originator and supplier of Buzz BiteÂ® chocolate and mint chocolate energy chews--that is our business. [/justify] [justify]We are troubled by the turmoil and confusion in the forums and the blogs that we read about--especially over the past several days. We want to assure all of those who have come to know and love Buzz BiteÂ® chocolate and mint chocolate energy chews that we are willing and able to supply product directly to you based on your own needs and requirements, and not on artificially determined amounts imposed by third parties. After all, it is your business and not somebody else's. Buzz BiteÂ® chocolate or mint chocolate energy chews have been around for four years and Vroom Foods has consistently provided a quality product. We encourage you to think and contact us before you decide to change from Buzz BiteÂ® chocolate and mint chocolate energy chews to a new product that has not been tested in the market. [/justify] [justify]Based on our review of the various blogs and forums, it appears that many of you may have legitimate gripes and concerns. We can assure you that Vroom Foods is an ethical business that is not the source or cause of those problems and we are taking appropriate action to protect the good will associated with our corporation name and our trademarks.
