CHICAGO -- U-Vend USA LLC has entered into an agreement for the distribution and sale of Mini Melts USA's frozen novelties through vending machines in the greater Chicago area. The agreement allows U Vend to place machines in big box stores, sporting facilities and shopping malls in the Chicago area.

U-Vend said it placed 30 Mini Melts machines in 27 Wal-Mart stores and entertainment centers throughout Chicagoland late last year and plans additional installations for 2014 under the new agreement.

Chicago-based U-Vend USA is a unit of Canada's Internet Media Services Inc., which designs, develops, distributes and markets self-serve kiosks. A new 3,600-sq.ft. facility in Chicago will support its Mini-Melts business, with capacity to handle the servicing, maintenance and management requirements for more than 400 machines, according to the company.
