About Us

About Crickler Vending

The Houseknecht Family has over 24 years of experience in the vending industry, and we put our experience to work for all our customers. Our family history in business started over 120 years ago in Batavia, NY, and we learned from our ancestors to always put our customers first and to treat everyone we work with fairly and respectfully. We proudly continue this tradition with Crickler.

In 2014 we became a franchise of Canteen, the world’s largest convenience services provider. Our affiliation with Canteen provides our family-owned and operated company access to corporate resources. This gives us the ability to offer our customers the best convenience services and cutting-edge technology.
