About Us


We build software to revolutionize automated retail.

At PopCom, we believe successful brands are intelligent, mobile, and resilient. We built our technology in their image. Our mission is simple: we equip entrepreneurs and brands with future-ready retail solutions that allow rapid retail expansion, incredible customer experiences, and powerful sales data.

At the cross-section of explosive e-commerce growth and waning brick-and-mortar sales is a extraordinary opportunity to provide a real, in-person experience for customers and instant delivery of products. All without the traditional challenges of brick-and-mortar retail.

Meet the Team
Since PopCom (Solutions Vending International, Inc.) was founded in 2017, we have strived to push the boundaries of the automated retail industry.

Like many companies, PopCom is a company that was born out of necessity. Our founder and CEO, Dawn Dickson, created the company after her own struggles to find vending machines that could sell her roll-up flat products (flatoutofheels.com) at high-traffic areas like airports. Also absent was the data she relied on to track and monitor traffic and conversion rates through her website and shopping cart; analytics, email collection, retargeting, remarketing–arguably the tenants of successful sales growth–were not possible with  traditional “low-IQ” vending machines. Dawn then assembled a team that came together to change automated retail forever: PopCom was born.
“"As an e-commerce entrepreneur myself, I understand that data was the foundation of my success. Now, retailers with one of our digital pop-up shops get the same critical data insights that online retailers have enjoyed for years.”
Dawn Dickson— Founder & CEO

We'd love to host you at our office.
