CORONA, Calif., Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AVT, Inc. (OTC Markets: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com), a leader in automated retailing systems, announced today that a system they have built for Burritobox is going nationwide through a new franchising program.
According to Vending Times, Box Brands Inc. is taking its Burrito Box vending machine nationwide, with its first franchisees opening several new markets this fall and more on the way.
"Box Brands launched Burrito Box in January in its hometown of Los Angeles, drawing lines of customers and media fanfare and sparking demand for the machines locally, nationwide and abroad. Vending customers select an all-natural burrito from a menu of five options using the machine's touchscreen interface. It's heated and dispensed in about one minute," VT reported.
The first of the trendy venders operated by the company's new franchise partners will soon hit the New York City, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Wisconsin and southern Florida markets.
Box Brands' Denis Koci told Vending Times that the company's initial franchisees include a full-line vending operator managing about 10,000 machines, fast food restaurant owners and startup entrepreneurs.
"We want to partner with more vending operators as we grow our network," said Koci. "It gives them a way to bring high-quality fast food to locations like never before, including universities, which is a prime market that they already serve."
Box Brands' nationwide expansion will also mark the launch of the soon-to-be revealed 2.0 Burrito Box, which will add toasted chips and salsa and churros to the menu, along with other features the company says will make for an unprecedented unattended retail experience.
James Winsor, CEO of AVT, Inc., said that he regularly works with entrepreneurs and helps make their dreams a reality. "We have a long history of working with entrepreneurs and helping design, create and build a system that fully realizes their vision," he stated. "From Burritobox and Medbox, to HUMAN Healthy Vending and many others, we have worked hand-in-hand with individuals that want to create an automated retailing business," he added. "We provide the engine that drives that innovation and growth."
