About Us

Who We Are

Family Owned Since 1930

Jerry Bos’s father started his vending company as a candy and tobacco wholesaler in West Michigan. Vending machines began gaining in popularity In the late 50s and early 60s. As a result, the Bos family made vending machine placement and servicing their core expertise.

Experience When it Matters Most

J. Bos Vending Service has a staff with anywhere from 2 to 50 plus years of experience. Jerry Bos alone has 50 plus years of experience and remains very much involved in the business. This amount of experience enables us to continue to serve our clients in a timely, efficient and professional manner.

Continuing the Legacy

Jerry and John oversee the ordering of all inventory, while John manages a staff of 12 route drivers to service over 600 locations in West Michigan.

In-house Maintenance

All vending machine service at our client locations is carried out by a full-time service staff. They travel every day to make repairs on the machines so the machines can stay up and running for our clients. We also have Henrik. He works closely with the service technicians to address any new installation or maintenance issues that may arise.

“Green” Friendly!

Jerry keeps up with the latest technology and energy saving solutions to better serve our clients. After two years of research, we are using Second Generation LED lights. These LED are very energy efficient. Jerry is also in charge of ordering parts, vending machines, and related equipment. He prepares and inspects the machines slated for installation as well.

A Phone Call Away 

Jerry’s wife Kathy, along with a staff of three, oversees all the accounting functions of the vending machine service operation. They answer the telephone during business hours, so you are never weaving through an automated voicemail system.
