The acronym LYPC stands for "Lucky Yuppy Puppy Company". What a uninspired name!  So the company doesn't have the best name but their products are high quality and engineered to provide many years of reliable service. The company was established in 1993 and was formerly a division of one of the world's largest vending companies at the time, Carousel Industries. In 1980's Carousel was sold to Ford Gum & Machine Co. and LYPC was kept in the family.  Today, LYPC manufactures their vending equipment in China and distributes their products around the globe.
