A little about us

Our story

It all started with a simple idea between friends, John Elvis and Erik. They noticed that Austin's bars, restaurants, and carnivals were in dire need of a vending machine makeover. So, they rolled up their sleeves and founded Silver Bandits, determined to bring a fresh twist to the scene.

The Beginning
Our Heartbeat

John Elvis and Erik spotted a gap in Austin's vibrant scene: the vending experiences at bars, restaurants, and carnivals were lacking. With determination, they launched Silver Bandits to revolutionize these spaces.

They didn't just choose any machines; they opted for ones that could transform ordinary moments into delights. From nostalgic arcade games to unique snack machines, their goal was to make every encounter memorable.

Community Spirit
The Road Ahead

Silver Bandits quickly became more than a business; it evolved into a community cornerstone. John and Erik were building more than a network of machines; they were creating gathering places for joy and camaraderie.

Looking forward, the future for Silver Bandits shines with potential. John and Erik continue to seek innovative ways to unite people, enriching Austin's social landscape one venue at a time.
