Diebold, Incorporated, a global leader in providing integrated self-service solutions, today announced it has teamed with Uni-Marts, Inc. to place 240 CashSource Plus 200 cash dispensers under its automated teller machine Franchise Program.
Under the franchise agreement, Diebold will install and operate ATMs in various Uni-Mart convenience stores and discount tobacco outlets located throughout Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, New York and Virginia. Installation is estimated to be complete in June 2001.
“Diebold’s ATM placement program fits perfectly with our initiative to provide increased convenience and service to our customers,” said Henry D. Sahakian, chairman and CEO of Uni-Marts. “Our customers will appreciate the ability to access cash on-site at an expanded number of Uni-Mart locations, and we will benefit from working with one proven supplier.”
! The CSP 200 with the Provisor option permits convenience store staff to load and recycle cash without accessing the chest of the unit by depositing money directly into the ATM by way of a bill acceptor. This provides Uni- Marts with a cost-effective and simple means to replenish the cash while minimizing theft and security issues.
“Retail outlets like Uni-Marts recognize the fact that Diebold has a myriad of turnkey delivery solutions, which include ATMs, self-service payment, security products and service and support,” said Bartholomew J. Frazzitta, vice president and general manager of Diebold’s Physical Security and Retail Group. “Our solutions are designed specifically to help build customer traffic and increase revenue within their respective businesses.”
