About Us

Kansas City's Favorite Vending Company

Family-inspired & customer-focused

Like Amazon, Apple and Disney, our business started in a garage.

Founder Don Miceli established Quality Vending in 1991 after a successful 30-year career in the vending industry. With his late wife JoBeth, they launched the company from home, with the two-car garage serving as product warehouse, right alongside the family’s washer and dryer.

Don’s son Carl was with him from the start, and son-in-law Dean Prather joined shortly thereafter, making this truly a family-inspired endeavor.

Together, they built a quality-driven company where, for over 30 years, customers have enjoyed courteous and prompt services from a professionally trained vending services team.

Today, Carl and Dean lead the state-of-the-art operations from an expansive warehouse space, providing the latest digital technology in vending equipment, barista-quality office coffee, convenient micro markets and office pantry services.

As always, our vending services are free to customers – no leases and no equipment to purchase. Product lines include top selling national brands in snacks and beverages, including healthier options.

We invite our current as well as prospective customers to tour our facility. Come and experience our “All Access V.I.P.” tour!

When It Comes to Quality, We're All Business

The quality of our products and our service is a huge source of pride for us. We love hosting our customers in our clean and bright warehouse, and we welcome you any time. Come for a tour and enjoy some snacks and beverages on us!

Our Customers

Built with hard work, family pride and values, Quality Vending and Coffee is the vendor of choice for many of the region’s top companies, serving mid-size firms to larger operations such as school districts and manufacturing facilities. Many of the company’s first accounts are still among the businesses and organizations the company is grateful to serve across the Kansas City metro and beyond.

Carl Miceli

President, Owner
Carl has been at Quality Vending since 1991, beginning as a route driver and salesman when he and his dad started the business. An avid family man, Carl cherishes time with his amazing wife – his sweetheart since high school – and their awesome kids, grandkids, brothers, sisters and extended family and friends. His perfect weekend includes a big Sunday dinner with everyone gathered around the table.

Dean Prather

Vice President, Owner
With a degree in Industrial Management, Dean joined Quality Vending in 1992. His tech-y side is challenged every day. “Our industry has evolved dramatically, just like every other sector. It’s what keeps our business exciting and fun.” Other kinds of fun in Dean’s world: travelling with friends, spending time with his wife and kids and three granddaughters.

Dominic Miceli

Office Coffee Sales
Like our Customers, Dominic appreciates a great cup of Joe: straight up, no cream, no sugar, no frills. As QVC’s coffee sales manager, he caters to every kind of java drinker, from traditional Folger’s lovers to gourmet aficionados. When he’s not peddling beans, Dom enjoys being with his lovely wife, his daughter, and their dog, Kugels (who is not a coffee drinker).
