Special Pringles Offer 2017
At the beginning of March 2016 we launched a very special offer on Pringles pots. Now we deal direct with Kelloggs the brand owner of Pringles, we are able to offer this incredible pricing structure for 2017! This will mean that you can for the first time be reassured of a consistent price without having to hunt around for special offers. What's more you can pre-order a bulk amount then draw them off when you make your Tubz orders saving additional transport costs. In the meantime you can always boost your sales with our Maxi Tubz range which is absolutely flying out. Just ask Bob in London. He said he was glad he was persuaded by Kris his Customer Manager to try them. Sites where he used to go to once a month he now has to go every week! So make sure you try them.
You dont have any Pringles, Maxi or Toy towers? Then it is about time you did! Make the most of your existing sites and double up to get twice the money on each visit. Ask your customer manager about taking advantage of our special offers on new towers with Pringles/ Maxi Tubz/ Tubz Toys stock orders.
Tubz Brands are pleased to announce, after long negotiations over many months, that we have completed the acquisition of a major vending company in the Netherlands who Tubz have been trading with for many years developing the Tubz, Pringles and toy towers in collaboration. The new European facility which includes our latest Tapas Tower has been incorporated as Tubz Europe (please see the new web site www.tubzeurope.com). The Europe operation will be headed up by Mr Ramon Baudoin who is a share holder in the new company. He has over 10 years experience with vending in Europe and is fluent in several languages including Dutch, French, Italian & Mandarin! This now gives the Tubz Brands group direct distribution across Europe and also a Rep office in China.

These are just some of the must - know facts anyone in Britains booming snack market needs to know, as revealed in The Grocers latest digital feature, Alls rosy in the snack industry. Tuck in...
Well Done Kris
It is very rewarding when your efforts are appreciated. Thank you Nigel for taking the time to let us know
I have been in the tower Vending Business since 2006 and dealing with Kris @ Tubz since 2007. I am sure all the Account Managers are very capable but I have only ever dealt with Kris in all that time (he always at work, even if hes ill)! He is always very easy going, courteous and friendly.
He has a very good knowledge of Tower vending and often passes on useful snippets of info from other operators and how they overcame problems with stock, machines and sites etc Kris always makes a point of recommending the new best sellers or maybe one of the older lines that I have overlooked! Blue Bon Bons are the latest recommendation and they are flying out, Thanks Kris.
Kris always takes orders and payments promptly and efficiently. I have used the competitors intermittently but always find Customer service I receive from Kris consistently excellent and thats quite an achievement over Seven Years!

Tubz Advice Corner
I know to some of you it is like telling your Grandmother to suck eggs, but is doesn't hurt the remind people and especially those of you who will be experiencing their first summer in Tubz vending. With the HOT weather just around the corner make sure you store all products in a cool dry place, don't leave products especially chocolate products in a van/car in the sun for too long and try to have some form of ventilation and make sure your tower vendors on site are not in direct sunlight. We hope you have a great summer and thank you for your custom, from all at Tubz HQ

Engineers Secret Tip
Carry a can of Sticky Stuff remover on your rounds they can be bought on e-bay. If you need to change labels, spray a small amount on the glue residue on the clear segment and rub with a jcloth or similar and comes off very easily.
Always carry a can of silicon spray and when you top up the vending tower. Give the coin mech a little squirt. It could save on call outs for jams.
