Vendo Decapper

Vendo Bottle Decapper

The Vendo Coca-Cola Bottle Decapper soda machine was manufactured between 1948 and 1949. It was very innovative for the time. A very large vending machine, it automatically opened a bottle of Coke, dispensed it into a cup, and then vended the cup to the customer without them ever coming into contact with the bottle. It could vend 194 bottles of Coke, and dispensed them into 6 oz. cups. These machines predated the “pre-mix” dispensers. Being very expensive models, only 251 of them were sold, making them very rare today.

Manufactured by:
Vendo Company
7209 N. Ingram Ave.
Fresno, CA

Dimensions: 78 in. high x 46 in. wide x 19 in. deep
Weight: 825 lbs.
