BFC’s history began in 1947, two years after World War II ended. When Abe Farber was discharged from the Air Force in 1946, he returned to St. Louis with the dream of owning and operating his own business. This became a reality when Browning-Farber Novelty Company opened its doors at 4631 Delmar in St. Louis in 1947.
Those were uncomplicated times and the business operated in a very simple way. The day’s collection was counted and coins were wrapped at the kitchen table. One technician handled service for all the machines. Typewriters, not computers, typed letters. Addressographs punched route tickets from metal plates, and the office had only one phone line.
Over the years BFC has expanded and kept abreast of the times as the Amusement Industry has changed and grown. The Company has diversified into Amusement Merchandise and ATM services. Even with all the changes, certain ideologies within the company remain constant.
In particular, superior customer service and customer satisfaction have been passed down through three generations of operation and ownership. This has allowed BFC to become a company operating over 2500 pieces of equipment with nearly 1000 accounts trusting us with our services.
