CORONA, Calif., May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AVT, Inc. (OTC Markets: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com), a leader in custom kiosks, vending machines, and automated retailing units, commented today on an article in Self Service World Magazine, titled Reinventing the Vending Machine.
The publication said that the last few years have seen a variety of creative systems entering the market, selling products such as cupcakes, gourmet coffee, organic food, pizzas, and burritos.
Innovation is the common thread in these next generation vending systems.
The publication highlighted Farmer's Fridge vending machines, which have an enclosure made of reclaimed barn wood, and are equipped with touchscreens and card readers.
"Farmer's Fridge is designed to break the mold on fast food," Luke Saunders, company founder, told the publication. "We compete with restaurants in food courts, and offer healthy, fast casual dining, which just happens to be in a vending machine."
Saunders said that the company is currently looking into franchising, and has had interest from many markets, including Canada.
The publication said that new technologies such as mobile payments, social media, and touchscreen interactivity are reinventing the user-interface possibilities for vending machines, taking the next-generation of machines to new heights of branding, advertising, and consumer engagement.
"AVT is leading the drive toward the next generation machine," said Shannon Illingworth, Founder and Chairman of AVT, Inc. "We develop machines that take branding to a entirely new level, with the most interesting functionality and design elements in the world," he added. "Plus, our patented technology provides vending operators with a system that provides greater sales opportunities and increased revenues per machine."
