A Brief History

The use of vending machines to dispense gum can be traced back as early as the late 19th Century when the Thomas Adams gum company placed gum vending machines on the platforms of the New York City subway stations. They sold Tutti-Frutti gum and gained popularity through the novel idea of selling their product through a machine. Other companies witnessed the benefits of being able to sell their product without even having to be there and soon started improvising on the designs.

By the 20th Century gumball machines were more common.  In 1913 a young man by the name of Ford Mason leased 102 of the newly invented machines and initiated his gum empire. In his early years gumball machines were inconsistent and often dispensed poor quality gum. Ford decided to take matters into his own hands and infuse his business with integrity. He began manufacturing his own gum and machines that were consistent and reliable. Their dependability earned them a reputation as a quality product that has survived to this very day. Ford gum now produces the carousel gumball machines that are found in countless homes and is the largest gum manufacturer in the U.S.

Recent innovations have given gumball machines a new spin on the functionality of their classic predecessors. Some machines today, like the Wizard Spiral gumball machine, have added an entertainment aspect to gumball vending. Adults and kids alike love seeing their candy spiral down the track before eating it. Today’s machines continue to evolve and improve to enhance the gumball vending experience.
