SHERMAN, TX -- Douglass Distributing Retail Co. has partnered with Vendgogh LLC to pilot gas island vending machines at its Lone Star Food Store in Sherman, TX. The installation, completed late last month, is the first of its kind in Texas.

Vendgogh's vending system integrates seamlessly with Lone Star Food Store's Gilbarco Passport point-of-sale system to enable customers to purchase gas and cold drinks with cash, credit, debit or contactless payments at the gas island.

"We want to surprise and delight all of our customers," said Bill Douglass, chief executive of Douglass Distributing. To further this mission, the Lone Star store has also invested in new pump technology that incorporates Applause TV, an advertising, news and entertainment system that will complement the at-the-pump vending services.

Vendgogh reiterated that research has shown that more fuel customers are paying at the pump and a large percentage of them do not go into the store.
