BizCafe_000006393270XSmallOur customers are the reason we exist.
We understand this central fact and recognize that providing value to our customers is our primary responsibility. Whether we are delivering cases of drinks for resale, stocking vending machines with food or serving employees in a plant cafeteria, we work hard to understand our customers' needs and develop a strategy to serve those needs with high quality products and efficient service. We look to forge a service partnership with open communication that can adjust to the changing demands of our constantly evolving world. And it is a wonderful side benefit that we can call many of our customers, friends.

In the section that follows, we are sharing some of the nice things our customers and business partners have written about us and been gracious enough to allow us to post on our website.


"Years ago Dixie Riverside got our business by offering a good convenience store product line-up. They have retained and greatly expanded their presence in our stores by also offering what the big beverage folks cannot: exceptional service, local decision-making and a genuine desire to help you build sales. I should also mention that they are one of the very few community-minded vendors we deal with. They are always open to helping with our local fund-raisers. I look forward to an unending business relationship with my friends at Dixie Riverside."

"A & A Vending Services has been our preferred provider since 2002.  If an issue needs their attention there is always a sense of urgency for it to be resolved immediately and not when they are able to fit us in.  I have enjoyed working with Charlotte Cliatt, as our contact person, along with their entire staff.  Charlotte wants to know what is working well for us and what needs improvement.  Her years of expertise are valuable when it comes to catering and service.  It is nice to have a company that appreciates our business and continues to strive to keep our needs met on a daily basis."

"I personally have been doing business with A & A Vending for several years.  First, I became familiar with Charlotte Cliatt while I was with GIW in Grovetown, and with both Bobby Kerr and Charlotte Cliatt now at KaMin LLC in Wrens, Georgia.  I speak from several years experience when I tell you that not only do they provide fresh food, their customer service representatives are great to work with. I do not just consider them another vendor for we have developed a true partnership.  For they are eager to do what we ask of them as well as they are continually evaluating out needs and advising of any needed changes.  Also, I have had the pleasure of using their catering services on several occasions, either for our annual dinners or shut downs and they go out of their way to please us, the customer.  Finally in closing, they truly surpass any vending company that I have ever used.  If anyone would like to discuss anything or get a personal reference do not hesitate to contact me personally at 706-872-1147."

"Dixie Riverside recognizes that fresh ideas and innovation are important, and readily embraces new brands and opportunities for growth presented to them by DPSG. In addition, DPSG brands benefit from their personal and responsive approach to delivery and distribution. These perspectives combined with superior execution in turn provide a wide variety of options for their retail customers to grow their own businesses. Dr Pepper Snapple Group is fortunate to have Dixie Riverside as its independent soft drink distributor throughout the two-state region."
