History of the Wizard Spiral Gumball Vender
By now, everyone has seen the ubiquitous Gumball Wizard outside any number of retail outlets. Dave Haymond, founder of Global Gumball in Gilbert, AZ, invented and patented the Wizard in 1993. It was the very first and original spiral gumball machine and this innovative product was credited with launching a revolution within the vending industry. The concept was special because it brought the element of entertainment to the purchase. The Wizard added value because it offers the experience of watching the gumball drop from the globe and spiral around and around down a track to the bottom of the machine. Gumball.com got its start in the vending business by securing the exclusive right to distribute and help Dave market the Wizard across the United States. The Wizard was an instant hit when it arrived to the marketplace, quickly propelling our annual sales into the millions, but savvy competitors found a way to circumvent the patent held by Global Gumball and flooded the market with knock-offs. This resulted in our company diversifying its product offering to include a wide range of vending products from other leading suppliers. 2013 marks our 20th year in business and it all started with our clever friend Dave who single handedly transformed the vending industry as we know it. When you purchase a spiral gumball machine from Gumball.com, you can say with confidence that you own an original.
