CORONA, Calif., June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AVT, Inc. (OTC Markets: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com), a technology leader in developing automated retailing systems, customized kiosks and micro-stores, announced that they have begun shipping their new, highly innovative Marley Coffee Automated "Mall" Kiosks. The self-service systems provide gourmet coffee in an interactive and engaging environment.
Recently profiled in Vending Times, the futuristic machines will be equipped with touchscreen displays and will grind whole-bean coffee and brew a wide range of specialty drinks, from a cup of black coffee to a latte or mocha beverage. Some models will have the capability to dispense other Marley products, like headphones, t-shirts, coffee mugs and bags of coffee, and provide advertising and promotional messaging opportunities on the built-in high definition flat screen monitors via AVT's exclusive media network.
AVT showed a prototype of the giant beverage system at the NAMA OneShow in Las Vegas recently. "We were surprised by the amount of attention this system received," according to James Winsor, CEO of AVT. "We knew we had a hit on our hands when passersby would stop and ask if they could order a unit or even buy our demo model," he added. "We've been in full-scale production since the day the show ended."
In a related commentary, Alicia Lavay, President and Publisher of Vending Times, wrote, "I find it interesting that both Seattle's Best and Marley's Coffee have worked with major machine manufacturers to develop full-size fresh-brew venders showcasing their premium brands. Earlier this year, Marley and AVT teamed up to offer a 'coffeehouse experience' aimed at traditional retail locations," she commented. "I think it's a step in the right direction, and if successful, these developments could be very good for our industry."
