Hi All!
Your support with my start up company is needed.
As a single mother of twins from Anchorage, Alaska I remembered being in the mall with my twins when they were very young (they are now 4) and my son blew out of his last diaper. I immediately had to pack up everything, attempt to create a makeshift diaper with 2 pairs of underwear from the kids portion of JC Penny and ultimately leave the mall to go all the way home. By the time I got home I was too tired to return to the mall to finish my shopping. Because of this the mall lost money and I was inconvenienced. I tried to plan ahead but as parents know, things happen.

So I created an idea called Baby Vend. It's a vending machine that has all the baby and toddler essentials you need to make a trip to the airport, mall, park, festival/fair, movie theater or amusement park stress free. This machines are not only geared towards families traveling with little ones but parents as well. 

I researched the market, determined where their were gaps and needs with other machines, and then strategically determined the best products, machine placement, and prices to work with our targeted customers and encourage entrpreuentrship among others.

I worked hard to ensure I completed proper trademark and patent paperwork and develop a good legally sound product backed by an Alaskan LLC with our first location at Ted Stevens International Airport.

Parents:
Have you ever been somewhere and your child's diaper blows out and you don't have another?

Have you ever had your child who is addicted to a pacifier lose it and they're crying like crazy?

Have you ever left out the house  and find it an inconvenience to have to go all the way home to get baby essentials when you have so much to do or was planning a fun day out?

Well, Baby Vend is the solution to all of those problems imagine being somewhere that you paid your admission and suddenly your child loses their bottle or you run out of formula. Uggggggggh

All you would have to do is look for a Baby Vend Machine and instantly problem solved!!!!

Baby Vend Benefit for a Business/ Event:
If you lease a Baby Vend machine at your business or during your event it ensures that parents who have children will stay longer and spend more money if they don't have to worry about leaving because they ran out of essentials.
